I am new to the group today and i had a miscarriage on october 27th (my first mc) at 8 weeks and i have not yet had a period? that makes 6 weeks and 1 day ago....My question is when did you get your period?

I want to ttc again but have no basis of where to start without a period. i called the doctor and they are not worried until 8 weeks

 I am in the same boat...I think.  I miscarried and had my D&C on Oct. 28. Two weeks ago I had old blood and tissue for a couple of days and have spotted off and on since. Not sure if that was a period or if just left over from surgery. I don't know when to start tracking. Have you had any spotting?

Glad to know I'm not alone. I had a d&e on nov 8. Had some brown spotting this past Monday but nothing since. I hate not knowing when it's going to come.

 It seemed to take me forever to start, and when I did it was irregular. I think it took me three months to start my period. I swore I was still pregnant for the longest. I just still felt pregnant. KWIM? I miscarried at 6wks.

 I didn't have a d&c or d&e, just let it pass naturally.

For me, after my d&c it was exactly 4 weeks.  With my natural m/c is was closer to 5 weeks. But I know from listening to others' situations, it can vary widely.     I am so sorry for your loss.  Have you tried to take a pregnancy test?  I know for me, part of the process is also watching your hcg levels.  Your cycle won't return to normal until your hcg is 5 or under.  Maybe you should ask for a blood test to check on this.

 Welcome to the group. I am so sorry for your loss but i am glad you found us. I got my period 3 days after my d&c...i got my period 4 weeks after my natural m/c.
Do you think you could be pregnant again??

I'm wondering this too. I had my d and c the day before thanksgiving. I didn't bleed until the monday after. I had intense cramping for exactally a week and I stopped bleeding yesterday. I thought it was possibly my period. But they said these is something (clot, pare of the pregnancy or other) that is still inside. My levels were 157 yesterday so I guess of your period doesn't cone back until it's below 3 ( thats what my doc said) then it was just vleedig from the miscarriage

It took 4 weeks with both my losses. I know average is 4-6 weeks but sometimes longer. I hope it comes soon, I'm sorry for your loss
