Really light AF after D&C

I have been really worried about not getting AF yet, after D&C, but, I did have a really light 'bleed' for only 2 days about 3.5 weeks after D&C.

I did some research and apparently it's not uncommon to have a light bleed for 1st and by another month, I should have a more normal cycle.

And a light bleed, I mean only some trickles using the toilet & when I wiped & just the tiniest bit of watered down brown discharge, on a pad. So tiny, tiny, tiny.

Just wanted to post this in case anyone else was having this same concern.  :smileyhappy:

And now, I'm back to spotting!  :smileyfrustrated:  I am at 5 weeks, 5 days now, with a couple of trickles a few weeks ago, then nothing & now spotting.  :smileyfrustrated:

After my first m/c I spotted for a couple days before AF arrived...Maybe a real AF is on the way for you?  I hope so, just to give you piece of mind.  I am still spotting (with small clots) from my d&c 2 weeks ago.  I am hoping it stops for when my husband and I go away next week.  We decided after everything to get away for a couple days and it is our 1 year anniversary so it is something nice for us to do and I really don't want to be spotting or have AF then.  Watch the spotting will stop tomorrow and AF will come while we are on vacation.  That would be my luck.

I really hope this spotting leads to a true AF for you.  I just want you to have some peace, even if it is just a normal cycle again.  Fingers crossed for you!

Exactly 6w for me too. Guess I got my answer. :-/ Going on vacation next week, so I guess I'm glad I won't have to worry about it while we're gone. Kind of nice to feel somewhat normal, at least physically.
