How long does it take to ovulate after a miscarriage?
“A woman will generally ovulate two to four weeks after a miscarriage, with a normal menstrual period occurring two weeks after ovulation,” says Dr. Lerner. “She can then start trying to get pregnant right away, if she wants to, with no increased risk of miscarriage.”
Some women do not experience any symptoms of miscarriage at all; however, possible miscarriage signs besides bleeding include:
- Mild to severe cramps.
- Pain in your back or abdomen.
- Loss of pregnancy symptoms, such as nausea or vomiting.
- White-pink mucus.
- Passing tissue or clot-like material.
- Here are four symptoms of infection after miscarriage:
- Prolonged bleeding and cramping (longer than about two weeks)
- Fever over 100.4 degrees.
- Foul-smelling vaginal discharge.
- If you recently had an abortion and experience any of the following symptoms, seek medical help immediately:
- very high or very low body temperature.
- heavy bleeding.
- severe pain.
- cool, pale arms and legs.
- feelings of confusion, restlessness, or fatigue.
- shaking chills.
- low blood pressure, especially when standing.
- Dilation and curettage (D&C) is a procedure to remove tissue from inside your uterus. Doctors perform dilation and curettage to diagnose and treat certain uterine conditions — such as heavy bleeding — or to clear the uterine lining after a miscarriage or abortion. Curettes used in a D&C can be sharp or use suction.
