  • i'm surprised your gyno didn't tell you to expect bleeding for a few weeks. you'll probably bleed until you get your period like i did. mine was only 5 years ago so i remember it well. my gyno told me that i'd most likely continue bleeding for a month and i did

  • I miscarried on Feb 28th at 6 weeks 4 days...natural miscarriage and my OBGYN told me NOTHING I could expect. It's been three weeks and I am still pain. But I think my period is on now (March 13th) so I guess I will see in a few days. You could be on your period already...

  • Anywhere from one to six weeks. Just as if you were to have given birth.
    I had a D&C in 2007 and it lasted I would say about two weeks for me.
