Period after chemical pregnancy

Hey all,

Weird question... or maybe one people have experienced/asked before.

My period started on Father's Day... nicely timed body; nicely timed!

But already today it's easing off. While I was in pain on Sunday it's just nothing I'd prepared myself for or like I feared. Has anyone had a similar experience? Or should I sit tight and remember that my periods will be all over the shop at the moment and it's maybe not over yet? x

Hi Hun,

I had a mc last September and then my period came 10 weeks after that, but very heavy for a day then very light (which is strange for me as I'm usually always heavy). I had a second mc in March and I am only just coming on now, again 10/11 weeks after. Everyone is different but personally for me, my periods were a bit all over the place. X

Thank you. Perhaps I'm lucky. But it feels odd since before all ivf I was in a bad place with constant heavy bleeds xx

Hi love, that's quite quick but has it been 2 days of heavy bleeding? That might be it.xx

Hiya, I didn't get that far, just a straight bfn for me but my next af was like that...really heavy day 1 and then hardly anything the 2nd/3rd day and that was it. Was more normal the next month though. I think it's all the drugs! xx

I've had a few chemicals and periods have arrived between 5-7wks xx

Mine arrived so soon and for so short a time. Very confusing x

You'll prob find your next one is much heavier. I've had a couple that were really light, followed by really heavy 😩 And then one that was heavy from the start. It all varies so much xx

Twobaby, this post is 1 year old.

Unfortunately nobody can really confirm if you’lll have a chemical pregnancy. Beta numbers can be low and can still rise slowly, sometimes they don’t rise but unfortunately you won’t know until your next beta and nobody else’s situation will be able to indicate what your outcome will be.

I know how horrible it is but try to relax, if your feeling very anxious maybe you could request another beta sooner than the 8th?

Hey,

With my miscarriage at 7 weeks I spotted for a few days before it got very heavy and very painful.

With my chemical at 4 weeks I bled just like a normal period.

With my chemical at 5 and a bit weeks I bled slightly heavier than my normal period for the first day or two then just spotting.

With my 2 chemicals my periods took slightly longer to come the first month, went from a 29/30 day cycle to 35/36 then went back to normal after the first month.

With my miscarriage at 7 weeks after that bleed it took about 6 or 7 weeks for my next period to come.

My first period after my D and C was a week late because I ovulated a week late. It was very light, a normal 3 day with very little actual red blood (like I said, normal for me). However the period I just had lasted 5 days (it was on time) and was bright and very heavy, not at all normal for me! I would say sit tight and remember your body and hormones need time to settle xx
