Hi everyone, I had a miscariage and had a D&C done at 10 weeks on July 6th. My recovery seemed to be ok and I only had light bleeding that didn't even require a pad for a few days afterwards. I normally have irregular periods caused by PCOS. Everythings seemed to be fine until last night. I started having tons of brown blood and discharge. (sorry yuck) I have never seen this color come out of my body before.

Anybody know what's happening to me? It's gross. It's a true medium dark drown color- no red visable at all. My lower back hurts too.

 saying it is brown in color tells me that it is old blood. probably something leftover in your uterus. now if it gets bright red then you should probably call your dr.

Most likely old blood. I too had a D&C after a miscarriage at 10 weeks about 10 years ago. I pretty much experienced the same thing. Sometimes even towards the end of my period I get this brown blood. My dr. always said it's normal, that it's just old blood. I'm sorry about your miscarriage. Hugs mama!

brown blood and mucusy stuff comes out of me at the end of my period for about 1 or 2 days. It always goes away. Yours will too. It is dried blood, very normal.

The same thing happened to me. I was okay. Give a call to your ob just for reassurance.

Thank You for all the replies and huggs. This may sound like a dumb question. As of today I started light bleeding red and passing clots like a period. Could it be my period or just bleeding from the D&C? I thought the point of a D&C was to clean everything out of your uterus. I am also having severe cramping on top of everything else. I am having a hard time sleeping because of the pain. When I stand or walk it's unbearable. I also have stabbing like pain in my lower abdomen. Is this normal?

I myself just had a miscarriage this week. My second one. I had the stabbing abdominal pain. If it gets too bad go see doc. But my doctor said some pain is normal. Sorry about your loss.

Brown typically means old blood, bright red is usually sign of infection. If it's troubling you call your doctor :) I'm sorry you had to go through that -hugs-
