Hi NewBeginning, I just read your previous thread, and I'm so sorry to hear of your loss.
I had a D & C this time last year, and it took about 6 or so weeks for AF to arrive. Also, don't expect that it will be normal - mine was a fair bit lighter than my normal AF, and took a few months to actually return to what I regarded as "normal."

For me it may have taken longer than normal, but just be patient and realistic, before you know it, hopefully you will be pg again.

Good luck, and look after yourself.

Hi Newbeginning, i'm so sorry for your recent loss. I was also very frustrated waiting for my first AF to arrive post D&C. It took 47 days and I had the worst ever PMS prior to it as i was so frustrated with my body I didnt know what was going on. I also felt very nervous and scared as I was sure that my previously normal cycle was going to be irregular forever. Big hugs for you. Stay strong. Hoping that it returns as quickly as possible for you so you can at least feel a little more in control of your body.
Goodluck!
