Hello all,
I had a D&C 9 weeks ago following a scan at 8 weeks that showed just a sac and no baby. Since then at 4 weeks post the procedure I had brown spotting and really light cramps for a few days but no blood.  Then 4 weeks later I had real bad cramps and trapped wind pain and more of the brown blood and discharge.
To say I am panicking is an under statement (the Internet is really bad sad.gif ) I have had blood work done and will go back on Thursday for the results but can anyone offer any advice.  I also had PCOS many years ago (10) but have not seen any symptons for years. Just scared it is Ashermans.
Thanks for reading.

I am so sorry that you are in this situation. I have no words of wisdom for you at this time but wanted to wish you luck and hope that all is well and that you are just taking a bit longer to get over things.

I agree with the internet thing. It can be really scary at times....

I am so sorry to hear about your loss OP hhugs.gif I also had a MMC diagnosed at 8 weeks.

I know it's scary and yes Ashermans is a possibility (i know from experience) but keep in mind it can take awhile for things to get back on track.  All I can say is trust your instinct - you know your body best.

If you have any questions about AS please don't hesitate to contact me

I am sorry for your loss.

I had a D&C after a MMC @ 12 weeks in June 07, I waited almost 12 weeks until I finally got my period back. I did go and have a quick US with the OBGYN at about 10 weeks and he advised all was looking on track for a period within 10 days or so. He did give me a script for Provera just in case my period did not show up, but fortunately it did.

It's hard waiting for it to return.

Don't want to freak you out but please read the pinned thread at the top of the threads about Ashermans syndrome I am not saying it's that could be many different things but knowledge is power

I had the same thing and at 7 weeks was put on progesterone tablets to make my periods come back. I took them for 10 days and my period came back 3 days later. I then went in for scans to make sure I ovulated and had a blood test today to confirm it so I would say talk to your doc about that.

I had the same thing, MMC at 8 weeks, had a D&C, four days of light spotting, then some more old spotting 4 weeks later, but not a proper period, then nothing.

I later discoverd i was pg with my now DD. biggrin.gif

Maybe POAS? You never know!

it took AGES for my period to return after my D&C, at least 6 months or so.  Not pregnant either.

No Ashermans.  It was just hormonal, mild PCOS.  I was completely terrified and went to a fertility specialist.

I had a suction d&c done at the end of October. My period didn't return for 3 months. 2 weeks after I got spotting for a week. I've got spotting again today - 4 days after my period is due. I'm hoping it means my cycle is coming back
