    Issues after D&C - 6 months later
    kittypie1 posted:
    I had a D&C 6 months ago. I read that my period would be heavy for the first cycle but haven't seen any information on people having issues past the first month. The 5 months following D&C my period pours like water. No clots or anything, just pouring blood. Now on month 6, my period was a lot of tissue or clots. After 3 days the period suddenly stopped. No signs of bleeding whatsoever which has never happend to me. A week and a half later I started my period again. I have never had 2 periods in 1month. Went to the dr yesterday and she said everything looks good and thinks my cycle is regulating itself. She recommends waiting4-6 weeks to see if everything gets back to normal, if not then go back in. - to note, my dr only checked bloodwork after D&C, no exam. Then I had a change of insurance which is why I didn't tell them about the pouring blood. Has anyone experienced this? Should I get a second opinion or just wait it out. I don't think it hurts to get an ultrasound but dr says wait.
