I miscarried on Wednesday and the bleeding stopped Thursday.. Every now and again I'd have old blood in my CM when I wiped but today I started bleeding like a period.. Is that possible or normal? I called the doc and they're gonna call back, but i just wonder.. Does anyone know anything about this? Couldn't find anything on Google. Thanks, girls.

As soon as your HCG levels drop to 0, AF is signaled to come.

I bleed for at least a week with my m/c's. Af returned 4-6 weeks later each time

It's definitely not your AF - it's pretty normal for it to taper off and then pick up again. I bled/spotted for a minimum of a week, even up to 2 weeks with my losses.

Are they monitoring your hcg levels? Like one of the PP said, you have to be at 0 (or at least in the single digits) before your cycle kicks in again. It's typically between 3 - 7 weeks for your regular AF to start again. For me, my AF returned around 35 days after the first day of m/c bleeding. HTH!

With my chemicals, it was pretty quick for AF to come. With my 2nd trimester angel, I bled heavily for a week, had about 5 days off, and AF came. HTH.

Still sending healing vibes your way, I know how hard these losses are.
