No Period Following Early MC


I posted on here a little over a month ago that I had an early miscarriage at about 7-weeks. I miscarried naturally (didn't need to get a D&C) and my doctor confirmed my pregnancy test was negative 2-3 days after the miscarriage started. It's been almost 7-weeks since the miscarriage and I haven't had a period or any signs that it's on the way. I haven't taken a pregnancy test (quite honestly, I'm afraid of what the results could be). Is it normal to have a delayed period after an EARLY miscarriage or could I be pregnant? I guess I could just take a test and not post randomly on the internet... but, everyone here is supportive and I'm curious to know about other people's experiences following early miscarriage. TIA!

    I’m so so sorry for your loss. I had a missed miscarriage with my first pregnancy that ended up resulting in a D&C. They think baby passed around 8 weeks but we didn’t find out until about 10 weeks. So mine was an early miscarriage as well. If I remember correctly, it took a few cycles until my period returned to normal. The first one after the D&C was a much longer cycle than usual, and then they just got shorter until I was back to my regular length. I hope this helps you! You’re not alone, and things will get easier. Thinking of you!

    I ended up taking two tests and both were positive. I called my OB's office and they won't even see me until September. Don't they see you earlier after a miscarriage? If my MC is considered my LMP, I'll be almost 11 weeks by then.

    I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks and never had a period after as you did, I got pregnant right away but my drs did blood work every other day to watch the levels rise to see if it was going to be a viable pregnancy after my miscarriage!

    Hi, I feel everyone's pain. First I took a test on july 20 which said positive then i was having so much pain I went to the doctor's had an ultrasound it reveled that there was the egg and the yolk but no definite heart beat. Now I'm 8 weeks pregnant on 9/22/19 I started bleeding and I went to the ER.They did an ultrasound and told me that they find no heartbeat so now today is Tuesday the bleeding has stopped. I call the doctors office they wanted me to come in Thursday for a procedure to take the baby out. Please I'm looking for advice. Right now I am in so much pain.

    I think it’s normal. I had a similar situation. Early MC. Natural miscarriage. Felt like forever till I got my period again. It’s common

    Thanks for the comments, everyone. I know this post is a bit old... but, I ended up taking a test after I posted and am now 11 weeks pregnant. I wish everyone well.
