Wondering if you ladies could offer some insight for me.
I had a D+C on the 11th of August after a miscarriage at 10+3 and I am pretty sure that my period has started today. I only bled for about 5-6 days after the D+C and haven't had anything since.
Now comes the TMI part. This morning I had 2 very dark brown/red clumps when wiping and it kind of looked like chicken livers. Is this normal? or should I go to the docs?
Thank you in advance xxx

I am really sorry to hear of your loss.
I too had a D&C in June and my first period arrived 6weeks later. It was extremely heavy and clotty and lasted 11days. Im pretty sure the clots are normal but you might find you are a little more crampy than normal as your body is trying to expel anything that may have been left over after the op.
If it gets really heavy and you are going through more than a pad an hour and it continues to be really clotty then perhaps ring your epu and see what they say. Im pretty sure its normal though so dont worry unless it gets worse.
Sorry again that you have to go thorugh this.

Sorry to hear you've been through it but the little comfort is talking to others and knowing we have been through the same thing. Its easier to talk to someone who understands.
That is the only thing I have seen except the normal blood but tbh im happy it is back only 5 weeks after the procedure. It means my body is getting back to normal and we can try again.
That is what I keep reminding myself.
Thank you for getting back to me. It really does help to know someone is there to answer. xxx

I know, it really helps to be able to talk about it with strangers online because its not talked about enough in the so called 'real world' but do know you are not alone. Since i had mine i spoke about it to a close friend and turns out 2 other friends of mine had mc's too so i spoke to them and it helped a lot also.
Some people are lucky enough that their period returns 4weeks after procedure but i think 5-6 weeks is farely normal. My next cylce was only 27 days which is the shortest cycle i have ever had and now were ttc again this month. Im due my period next weekend (i think) so only time will tell but i doubt i will be that lucky.
Just make sure to look after yourself and let yourself recover emotionally before you start trying again.
