I think the best thing for you to do at this point would be to go to see your ob-gyn. They will do a blood test to see if in fact you had a m/c. If you don't want to get pregnant again maybe you should talk to them about a form of birthcontrol that might help with the bleeding. After a m/c it may take your cycle to go back to normal.

Good luck and keep us updated.

It sounds like the .Jan 23 one was probably your period. If you had a d & c, and even if you didn't, it doesn't mean you'll have a 'heavy' period the first one after a miscarriage. It can take some women awhile before they resume their regular cycle due to the hormones involved in pregnancy.

The bleed you had in .Feb sounds like it was midcycle spotting and not meant to be a period at all. This can be normal coming off the pill and also having your body adjust to a miscarriage.

The previous posters advice that you might still be pregnant is completely misleading and please don't listen to it! I am confident that if you miscarried your doctor took all the precautions to make sure that is exactly what happened. If pregnancy tests are negative you are not pregnant.

Sorry! I incorrectly read the first post. The post stated that the pregnancy test came back negative instead of positive. I can see why ingi stated that my posting was misleading. For some reason I thought the poster wrote that the test came back as not being negative ....Reading comprehension problems. Completely disregard my post. I apologize for writing what I did. And if it caused any confusion.

Of course, it would be a completely different story if the test came back positive.
