Abnormal bleeding 5 months after miscarriage - no answers


Hi all,

I wanted to share my story to see if this has happened to anyone, because in my world, I'm a mystery case. I had a miscarriage back in March. I chose to do it naturally, however, my OB convinced me to take pills (forget the name) that induce contractions just to ensure that I passed everything on my own. Fast forward a month later, I was still spotting and when I had to push while on the toilet, bright vaginal blood would appear in the toilet. I was given a D&C to catch any possible missed tissue, which I was told there was none. My OB ran blood tests to check thyroid and all types of things and everything came back normal. I was then put on BC to control irregular bleeding, which didn't work. Then, I was given an MRI and nothing was suspicious on there. My OB put me on high estrogen pills to thicken my uterine lining, which showed to be thin on the MRI, bc that could help breakthrough bleeding, didn't work. So, again, fast forward 6 months later. I just got another D&C with a hysterocopy to check for anything suspicious like fibroids, polyps, cysts, or signs of cancer. Good news, she saw nothing. Now, I await pathology, which she thinks will be fine. And she will probably want to send me to an endocrinologist to see if they can determine why I bled for so long. Funny thing is, it's been about two weeks since I last spotted! I came off the BC and it's like I'm cured! So, has prolonged spotting/bleeding ever happened to anyone for months after a miscarriage with no health problems to be found?
