I agree! It can be so irritating not know what your body is doing but hopefully you can trust that after such an experience you body needs the time to heal and recover. I was so in the dark about when I was ovulating until I read the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. I kept thinking, why didnt I know this??
I hope things clear up for you soon. baby dust!!

hi, I am sorry for your loss. I had a similar situation...it took about 40 days to get AF after m/c and then it lasted 2 weeks, with spotting for the last week or so. I called my dr because it was very unusual for me to spot for so long and they had me go in for an u/s to be sure nothing was retained from the pregnancy and no polyps. I did and all was clear in fact u/s tech saw that I was about to ovulate! I was so preocupied by the spotting I wasnt watching for ewcm... I did opks and charted my temp. then I o'd on cd15! so hope all is well with you and its just your body getting back to normal. good luck

My flow during the miscarriage was about 10 days, and my usual a/f lasted about 6, so longer than usual. See a doctor to make sure everything is okay!!!

wow! My 1st AF after D&C, was my normal 4 days, however my 'usual' cycle was a little messed up, so I used OPK's to figure out when I'm ovulating.

You may want to see your doctor to find out if all is okay? and whays going on?
