1st m/c with a ?
Thu, 06-16-2011 - 8:34pm

I found out today that I'm going through my first miscarriage. My beta level was 19. I'll go back on Monday to make sure it keeps going down.

My doctor told me that in a month I will have a regular cycle and then we can start trying again.

I know everyone may be different but is my body going to view this as a cycle and then have a real menstrual cycle in my regular 28 days from now? (I hope that makes sense)

The doctor was confident that my body is getting rid of everything properly and I won't requre a D&C.

This is all new to me. I hope someone can shed some light on what to expect? Thanks.

I am sorry for your loss. Ever body is different. It took me 35 days to start a new cycle. I have read that some are 28 days and some are longer.

For me, my beta was at 4600 and still increasing when I found out my pregnancy wasn't viable. I had a missed MC and did have to have a D&C. But my regular 28 day cycle was exactly 28 days from my D&C. I have always been very regular, so I think that helped.

I am so sorry for your loss. That's a very low HCG and only 14 units away from a negative. I don't know how far along you were or if you were regular before, but you're doctor is probably right. It may not be 28 days, but your body will menstruate when the HCG is gone and then it will go back to its normal after that. I had a D&C and resumed my cycle 45 days later.

So sorry for your loss, it is so hard and unanswered questions right now are the worst. I had a natural m/c at 6 weeks, I bled for 5 weeks and didn't get AF for another 6 weeks, however my HCG levels were at 12,000 so that is probably why it took that long, most aren't that bad. Hang in there, it does get better but allow yourself time to mourn your loss. Keep us posted.

I really hope that because my beta was so low that everything goes back to normal soon. I think the hardest part is being stuck in limbo...not pregnant and unable to get pregnant or not know when you can try again.

Emotionally I didn't think I would breakdown as much as I did. That surprised me. But I have a wonderful man by my side who has been really good. It has been really hard suffering in silence because nobody knew we were pregnant.

So sorry for your loss, and welcome to the board. My numbers were in the 800s when we found out and I had my AF less than a month later, I was so shocked. I'm sure AF while show for you soon and hopefully you can get on trying again. :]

hey dana,
same thing happened to me April 13th this year. i was a day before turning 12 weeks. just woke up one morning with slight cramps. cramps increased as time progressed. then started bleeding heavily...soaking a super pad every 5 min. seemingly i had natural miscarriage. had to go to doc daily to check levels via blood work. for about 10 days, I passed a few clots then blood slowed down. after all bleeding gone, i was able to have sex. so, i got my 1st period may 29th. it was light. but note that I was on Yaz. Doctor told me to start 2 wks after m/c. I took the whole pack. Now, we are not using any protection. Expecting period next week, but hopefully we conceived!!!! Sorry for your loss & good luck :-)
