  • Hi. How are you getting on? I'm not sure of your story so can't really comment but sounds a little strange. Hope you've got ur af now.
  • I was going to ask the same thing. I too am having what I really think is my first AF since MC on the 4th of Feb. Think it started around Saturday/Sunday. It is kind of like a real heavy AF, but I am having one really heavy episode of bleeding, that is soaking through a tampon and then just like a normal period for the rest of the time, the heavy bleed can be either during the day or night, after that it seems to settle down to a normal flow (sorry TMI). There have been a few small clots also, but I was told to expect this anyway. I also get really strong tummy pains when I am having the heavy episode. I haven't really stopped bleeding properly since my op, which is 5 weeks tomorrow, but the bleeding has got alot heavier after almost stopping, which is why I think this is AF!!!!!! My normal AF is very light and only 3/4 days. It is such a pain as I have to keep checking that everything is ok when I am at work!!!!!

    Anyway, just to say that I think your first AF is always going to be an odd one, suppose the body has been through alot it is trying to get back to normal. I am going to leave everything now until Saturday as it should have stopped by then, if not going to go to GP. Hopefully I wont need to do this.

    Hope everything gets back to normal for you. Anyone else got any adivice about first AF?
  • Sorry MrsJBourne I cant be any help, I am waiting for my first AF too. Why is nothing ever straight forward??! I had a three days no bleeding but started spotting again last night so wondered if period is coming, I am also really moody!!

    Let us know how you get on, fingers crossed it is your first AF and then you can start to feel back to normal again.

    Take care

  • erm... yuk! lol, sorry, it could be possibly some left over 'tissue'... at a guess, i had an AF after my mmc, i knew it was def an AF cus i OV'd and then AF appeared 14 days later and then after that i passed some left over tissue, thought to be womb lining that was quite stringy... my doc said not to worry as it didn't smell or itch or anything. xx
