First period after first D&C

Hello All!
You have been such a great help to me in the past I was hoping that you could help again.

I had a D&C on Dec.19th. Ok, I had some bleeding for about a week after. No problem. Doc has put me on Provera for complex hyperplasia with atypia...I was on this for a week and started some break thru. By the end of the week I was bleeding heavily and soaking super plus tampons every couple of hours.

That aside, not only is it very heavy, it is very painful as well. I just wanted to know if this was normal for the first period after a D&C?? And, is there any thing that can help relieve this? I could barely stand up today and had to come home from work early. It seems to get less in the evenings and overnight.

What a pain!!! Any advice and wisdom is appreciated.

First period after first D&C

Have you called your Dr? I dont think you should be bleeding that heavy with a 1st period after D & C. What was the D & C for? Did you bleed heavy like that before the D & C?

First period after first D&C

Hi Gretta,
thanks for the reply. Yes, I was having period trouble before, that was why we went ahead with the D&C...They were long and annoying..I just wasn't sure what the first period was supposed to be like after a D&C. Are they supposed to be this painful and heavy? It seems to be lighter in the evening and heavier in the morning and day.

Were there any Fibroids that were causing the heavy bleeding? Did they find anything at all. I have had 3 D & C'c over the years and my 1st couple of periods were very light I had no pain at all. Everyone is different but it couldnt hurt to call you Dr., maybe you are just overdoing it.

First period after first D&C

Uterine scan was done in Oct. and doc found what he thought was a polyp. However, during D&C and hysteroscope (in Dec.), he found it was just a shaggy piece of endo. lining. Was on Provera for 3 mos. before D&C , but the last month I was bleeding for a month straight. The path report came back with the diagnosis with complex hyperplasia stuff.

When I started having breakthru on Jan.5th, I called the doc and they said some bleeding is normal and it should get lighter. When it got heavier, I just figured it was just time for my period anyway. Wasn't sure how soon after a D&C regular periods were to resume. Any idea??

The small of my back is hurtning pretty badly...I will be calling in the morning.
