Symptoms after Miscarriage??

Hi Ladies, I'm 5 days past medical management and the last few days I've been suffering with really bad headaches, and still bleeding quite heavy. I thought it had subsided and then yesterday and today have had bad cramps and past several large clots. Mentally I'm feeling ok, but physically I'm exhausted and don't know why. I'm sleeping really well, but sleeping for 10-11hours a night which is unheard of for me and still feel exhausted for it. I've also come out in loads of spots on my face and neck 😩 has anyone else experienced these sort of symptoms following a miscarriage? Just so glad that hospital signed me off for 2weeks as physically no where near ready to go back to work.

Thanks Cat, I'm eating too well! Lol! The bleeding seems to have pretty much stopped today, just can't get rid of the headache! But reading these replies has put my mind as ease xx

I had surgical management a few weeks ago - as it was surgical I didn’t have a lot of bleeding after!! But I did have bad headaches for near two weeks, my skin was awful & terrible fatigue - my doc said that was all to be expected and hormones starting to readjust!!

But if you’re bleeding and cramping is getting worse rather than better it might be worth getting checked Hun? xx

Thanks Leo, thankfully bleeding had pretty much stopped today. Still got the headache though, and makes me feel a little calmer to hear others have experienced similar as I was getting worried. Felt like I've had a bit more energy today too, so fingers crossed everything is settling down xx

I was really quite unwell after my first natural miscarriage, i took two weeks off work which I’ve never done in my life and I needed it! I was exhausted (which gives me headaches). Make sure you are taking some multivitamins with iron to help your energy and rest up, listen to your body and sleep as much as it needs. You have been through a lot.

Thanks Lizzie, as my friend said yesterday, when you go through this it's like going through a mini labour so she said I am going to feel crap for a few weeks. I just can't believe how much I've slept, but like you say my body must need it. Have felt a bit better today which I'm pleased about! So thanks for the reassurance xx

Hey 👋 me again. Yes. Remember how I told you that a few days after the main event I had really bad cramping again? And I passed more clots? It seemed anytime there was something to expel, this time the remnants of my lining, my womb went into cramping like a mo.fo. Also my skin was so so bad. At the time, I had the worst outbreak I’d ever had in my life (and I’ve had acne since I was 13!) Talk about depressing. I was also exhausted. And sleeping well. This all sounds normal to me.. I really hope you feel better soon xx

Thanks Tugs, your reply really reassured me 😊as pretty much sounds identical to mine. Funnily enough after passing the clots yesterday by bleeding has now pretty much stopped and I have felt half human today so hopefully I'm through the worse of it now 👍🏻xx

Hi missis sorry you’re feeling so ropey Sounds like your body’s settling down again after all the hormones. It’s good that you’re off work so you can take your time but Leung your strength again. Make sure you rest lots, your body’s been through so much it’s not surprising you’re exhausted xxx
