D & C Bleeding

Just wondering for you ladies out there that have had a D & C how long did you bleed for?

I had a D & C on Thursday night and have been feeling fine physically no cramping, minimal bleeding but I noticed this morning (sorry maybe TMI now) that after I did a poo I have started to bleed a little bit.  Not having to change pads or anything like that but just more than I was yesterday for example.

Do you think that I am maybe expecting this to all settle down just too quickly and that things are just still sorting themselves out down there iykwim?

I just want this to all be done with, I suppose seeing blood is a reminder that I don't like to see.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

I had a d&c for other reasons (not miscarriage or abortion) and I bleed for maybe 5 - 7 days.

I spotted for a while, I think nearly two weeks. It was very light though.

With mine I bled for about 3-4 days. Then it was light spotting for the rest of the week. Then for the next two weeks there was a rusty brown colour (old blood) every time I wiped. Not enough to warrant a pad, but enough to remind me it was still there (I wore a liner that whole time though).

I bled on and off for about 3 weeks. It would look to be stopping and would then start again. It drove me mad. I think I got a proper period 7-8 weeks later.

I bled full on for five or so weeks, and then on and off for another few. I suspect that I'm just a bleeder though, as my post partum bleeding is quite lengthy as well. But, all within the range of normal. Everyone is different.

Good luck, I hope it's all over for you soon... Xx

original.gif Thanks for all of your replies.

I think that maybe I am just being too impatient tbh and need to chill out and let nature take it's course.

From what you ladies have describe I am in the realms of "normal".  The bleeding has subsided alot and I think that it was really more spotting than bleeding and that I just panicked a bit blush.gif

Thanks again xoxo

Sorry for the loss of your precious baby, when I had my last D&C I bled for 6 hours and then spotted for a few days, i was worried too but asking on here it seemed normal.

It'll be a week tomorrow since my D&C and the bleeding is a bit up and down, but not as much as I thought there would be.

Had quite heavy bleeding the day of the D&C, but started to ease off that afternoon.
Tuesday I had spotting.
Wednesday - I experienced the same as you, more blood with bowel movements.
Thursday I ended up back at the ER with really bad pains (but I was stupid and overdid it).
Friday through to now, I've had bleeding, but less than I would with AF and it seems to be easing off a bit now.

But I've also had some cramping and quite painful ones on Wednesday and Thursday.

Hmmm yeah something to think about I haven't over done it but I haven't really rested as such.  Maybe I will just take it easy tomorrow.  

Thanks for planting that seed Bwok~Bwok!
