How long does bleeding from a miscarriage last? And is it very heavy bleeding with pain the whole time? Or is it just bleeding?

  • I bled for about a week like a normal period. They will give you some pills that shorten up the time you bleed. It's hard to go through a miscarriage. Hope you have a good support system.

  • I had a miscarriage 4yrs ago, I was just into my 3rd month. I bled for just over a week. I had very heavy bleeding for the first couple days, after that it was more like a normal period.

  • I was 14 weeks when we discovered my twins had, I had to have D&C which may have caused me to bleed more. I bled for about 3 day in particular there was VERY heavy bleeding with lots of clots and cramping....other than that I dont remember it being overly painful(except emotionally)If you are really uncomfortable in lots of discomfort or passing a lot of bright red blood you need to go to the dr/hospital immediately! I should have went but I was stubborn

  • I had a miscarriage Sept. of last year, I never had any pain and didn't even realize that I was pregnant till it was pretty much over. I thought that I had started my period then it stopped for two days and I started bleeding again heavily I called the doc. and they wanted me to come in for a test...I didn't believe that I was pregnant but I was...they told me that I was most likely miscarring due to my HCG levels were so low...I continued to to go every two days to get blood work until my levels were at 0. It was a very hard experience to go through...even though at the time I wasn't ready for another baby....I still think about it all the time....I really hope that you have a good support system. But no I never had any pain...just very tired and heavy bleeding and then to the dark lighter bleeding.
