Hello Everyone,

I thought I'd move from the Pregnancy Loss board over to this one because I am hopeful and nervous that I can TTC after having a D&C on April 1st.

You had your D&C on April 1st, right? Then it is unfortunately probably more residual bleeding.19 days seems a little early for you to cycle again (I think 4-6 weeks is the average). I had the same thing happen to me at right around that time, hadn't bled for a week, but then started again. But mine was brown blood with clots, the bright red does seem like AF. Maybe wait and see if it goes away or lingers? Good luck!

Karla, I'm going to have to agree with the PP, It sounds more like it would be residual bleeding. If you said that the 19th was the first day not having to wear a pad and then the 20th, you're back wearing a pad, I'm guessing that it's just more bleeding from your m/c. I know that it's pretty typical for women to go 4-6 weeks (and more often closer to the 5-6 week mark) for their first AF post-m/c. Keep an eye on things. If it gets really heavy, I would call the doctor. It may also slow down and stop again in a day or two. So, also be prepared for that. (((HUGS))) recovering from a m/c is one of the worst things ever.
