how long on average? I had a miscarriage and a d&c this week.
how long before af returns? I know it probably varies, but what is average?

Re: af afte D&C

I had a D&C to diagnose endometriosis and I got af a week later, but I think could have been my normal cycle coming on.

Re: af afte D&C

I am so so sorry

I had a d&c at 8w5d in August and for me it took a little over 5 weeks.

I was still getting + pregnancy tests for 3 weeks after the d&c. A few days after they turned negative, I ovulated (about 10 days later than usual), and then 13 days after that AF came.

one site that helped me a lot was this: http://pregnancyloss.info/
especially the questions and answers in the healing section.

Re: af afte D&C

I had my D&C on 11/5 and got AF on 12/24. From what I have read the average is around 5-6 weeks. I had a check-up at 6 weeks post-surgery and they had me take a pregnancy test then since AF hadn't arrived yet & also told me that generally cycles are back by the 6 week point.

Sorry for your loss. It is so hard especially at this time of year.

Re: af afte D&C

I never had AF, I got pregnant before it came but it took 12 wks for my levels to drop and I was 9 wks when the baby died.

I am really sorry for you loss. (hugs)

Re: af afte D&C

I had a ruptured ectopic in May and they also did a bit of a D&C when they did surgery. I think it took 5 weeks for AF to return for me, but I also bled for 2.5-3 weeks after too.

SS mama.
