Had d and c procedure after missed miscarriage, small clots on body, back pain, no periods yet. Reason?
hi, i had a d and c procedure on 28 Jan after missed miscarriage. i had a just a few days of bleeding. about a week later i suffered with severe abdominal pains and went back to hospital. they carried out a scan and said i had some small clots my body was trying to expel and gave me some antibiotics. 6 weeks after the d and c, i had 4/5 days of very dark discharge but nothing of colour or flow of normal period. for the last two weeks (weeks 10&11 post d and c) i have experienced lower back pain and some pelvic pain but I've not seen my menstrual cycle. i have tested for pregnancy yesterday but it was negative. my period was due this week. why have i not yet seen a menstrual cycle? we so want to get pregnant again but it is difficult because we are unable to work out ovulation dates.
Hi!. Thanks for your query. Usually after a miscarriage and followed by D&C the usual periods start late and may variate from person to person. Wait for one more cycle and if it does not come see a Gynaec once again for advice. Take care.
