I had my ERPC 4 weeks ago (today) and bled for about 2 weeks after. I had a week with no bleeding at all, had large amounts of EWCM, then last sunday had some spotting. This spotting carried on, sort of brown for the week, only when I wiped after having a wee - went to the docs who advised its probably my period and to do a preg test which I did and it was negative. I had full on full flow blood yesterday and today so I'm pretty sure this is my period. I've had period pains too.
Is this too early? If i count yday as CD1, it was only 26/27 days since the ERPC. My normal cycles were 31-33 days before I got pregnant. I might be overthinking it, I just dont know what to expect now, will my next period come in 27 days too?
Any experiences would be grand! x

Hey Rod - hope you are ok!
I obviously didnt have an ERPC, but my cycles pre MC were 40-42 days.
My first cycle after my MC was 35, and then went on to 92, 55, 42 and again 42, so they seem to have settled down now, but as you can see they were quite different from what seems to be my normal.
I would like to say that your period will come agian in 27 days, but i really don't know. Your body might just be adjusting like mine did so it may take a while to get back to normal.
If you want a proper chat about it all, you know where i am x

No advice sorry but just wanted to say hi.
It's nice to "see" you. Hope you are as well as can be expected. X

Thanks Suzie. I am going on holiday in 3 weeks (tomorrow yay!) and was hoping not to be on my period while we're away but i suppose my body will chose!
Its annoying feeling out of control. And the fact that my period pains are shocking doesnt help either.
Thanks Jellytot, I'm doing pretty well, considering x

It's normal for it to mess you up a little bit cycle wise. My first period after my natural mc came 29 days after I had the scan, but I'd actually been bleeding for a few days already so that cycle was quite a bit longer than my normal 28. Then it stuck at 29 for a while, then it went longer again into the mid 30's. Then I had a random 25, now I'm pretty much around 29 most months.
It's frustrating, but normal. Hopefully you won't be on on holiday, if you're going in 3 weeks I'd say its very unlikely.

Mine were all over the shop after my erpc too until they settled at about 37 days. Hope yours get into a regular cycle soon
Thanks OB. Nice to see you over here x
I am preparing myself for it to take a while to even out. Its hard actually having a period, its very final and real and really over now.

Rod, I have nothing of any value to add. I was told first day of mc was to count as cd1. I have absolutely no natural cycle and have only had 3 drud induced afs in 8 months. My clinic are going to scan my womb thickness n give me drugs again in about 30 days as they are hoping to get my body into some sort of cycle.
A holiday sounds lovely, sorry that the arrival of af makes it all seem over

Thanks NG - I was counting the day of the ERPC as CD1 - I didnt have any other bleeding so I am pretty sure thats about right x

We're your cycles always regular before Rod? I'm hoping it will have the opposite effect on me, and I will get a cycle! X

Sounds absolutely normal but I wouldn't automatically expect your next af to be the same length especially as previously your cycles were a couple of days out at times.

NG - I was only on my 4th when i fell after being on the pill, It went 38, 33, 31..then i got the BFP. So I have no idea what they would have been had it gone on longer!
TP - I dont expect anything! Gawd knows whats going on inside there.
