Hello all! I’m a tad confused and in need of some peer to peer opinions. A little back history, I was 5wk pregnant when I miscarried on April 6th. (Sorry if TMI..) I bled for just over three weeks and was suppose to start af a couple days ago, but haven’t. We did have unprotected sex on April 30th, so I’m wondering could it be possible to get pregnant that quickly? Or would the mc mess with my cycle a lot? The only symptoms I have thus far is headaches, light lower back and uterine cramping and loss of appetite. ANY info is welcome!! Thanks ladies!

cc33 : It is possible to get pregnant before the return of your period, but it’s also very possible that the miscarriage messed with your cycle. Both times, my cycle took longer than usual to return, however, I did have complications the second time. My doctor told me return of period within 4-6 weeks is normal. Did you track your ovulation since the miscarriage? sorry for you loss and best of luck!

MsTrulove22 : thanks for the reply! I have not actively tracked, I use to rely on my app since my periods use to be on the dot 28days. CM has seemed like I’m ovulating for like the last 7days so I don’t know what to think! 3 days ago body temp was higher than usual, but i have never tracked ov with body temp before so idk what to look for.

More than likely the MC just messed up your cycle but I would take a test just to be sure.
Sorry about your loss!

cc33 : So sorry for your loss. I MCed in April and bled for about a week. I knew my cylce/ovulation would be off so I started using the clearblue ovulation kit right after the bleeding stopped. I was really surprised when 3 days later I was in high fertility and 2 days after that I got the smiley that said I would ovulate in 24 – 28 hours. My O/B said that sometimes your HCG levels can stay high enough to get a positive pregnancy test for several weeks so if you do get a BFP i’d get a blood test to make sure.

Sorry for your loss. It may take time for your cycle to return to normal. Do you have any other symptoms?

cc33 : I miscarried in early January and did not have AF return until early March (about 7 weeks or so later). April was also about a week later than my usual cycle legth. Now, 4 months later, it seems back to normal for the first time. Give it some more time! From everything I read, this is pretty common/normal.

Did you get checked out after your miscarriage? Sometimes tissue can get stuck and complications can follow. Please get checked out and have your hormone levels checked to see if your hgh is at 0 or near 0. Good luck.

cc33 : I’m really sorry for your loss. It is possible to get pregnant this quickly, but a MC really messes with your body, including your cycle. I had a very late MC at 18.5 weeks. Bled for 4 weeks and it took a few months for my first period to come.

cc33 : I’m so sorry for your loss. For me I was 6 weeks pregnant, miscarried in September, and didn’t get my period until late November. It takes time for the cycles to return. I would be patient, which is never what you want to hear after one.

cc33 : I’m so sorry for your loss. I went in for an Ectopic on April 4th, the same day I started heavy bleeding. I was treated with an MTX injection and bled for about 3-4 days. I literally JUST got my period yesterday (so 5 weeks later). I know my situation is going to be different than yours, but I feel your pain. It’s so frustraiting waiting for it to start and not knowing when you’ll get it. My hCG was back down to 0 within like 4 days of my injection, so it literally was like 5 weeks to the day. I would be patient and if in another week or so maybe call your doctor and get checked out. The annoying thing is that it seems the standard doctor answer for it all is “everyone is different”.

I had a mc in late November/early December. Counted CD1 as the day my HCG was at 0 and got my period 82 days after that. My cycle took a long time to come back, but I think this is waaaay longer than it take most! So I would take my experience with a grain of salt. The main point is everyone is different. Some ladies have normal cycles again right away.
