  • For me it lasted a couple of months for the bleeding and cramps to go away but about 6 months for my cycle to really get back to normal and my hormones to get back to normal. I am sure that it depends on the person and how far a long you are when you miscarry.

  • I am so sorry for your miscarriage.

    I miscarried at 11 1/2 weeks, and needed a DNC because of the babie's size. I bled for about 2 weeks after that and started cycling immediately.

    My sister has had two early ones. Her bleeding last from 1 1/2 weeks to 2 weeks.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  • Both of my miscarriages were on 8w4d exactly.

    The first miscarriage took much longer and was MUCH MORE painful. (There is suspicion it may have been twins though.) I bled for something like 2 weeks before ever passing the two large sac like clots. Then I bled heavily for a number of weeks after. A couple of days I had doubling over pain that would be on and off.

    The second miscarriage I bled for maybe 3 days before passing the large clot. Then I bled for about a week and a half with varying heaviness. I had a period the a few weeks later and was pregnant 6 weeks after my miscarriage and delivered a healthy baby boy 10 months to the day after I actually lost the baby.

    I'm so sorry you are going through this, it is incredibly painful. I'm sorry I can't be of more help, but everyone I ever saw with medical knowledge during my two m/c's said each one is different as far as pain and duration.

  • Although both doctors made sure to repeatedly emphasize the need to go to the ER if I soak a pad in an hour. (soak as in saturate because my idea of soaked is a lot less blood then theirs is...)

    Again I'm sorry. :(
