I am 18 years old and I have had irregular periods since I got my first period when I was 12. Normally I would get my periods every 3-5 months. I've been to gynocologists, and I was always told that it was normal, and they would put me on birth control to try and regulate it. I've been on two different types of birth control in the past, and I quit taking them because, instead of making my period regular, it just makes it continuous. The last time I was on birth control I bled for a month and a half, non-stop.

Anyways, this past March I had a miscarriage and since then I've been having my period every month with very extreme pain. The pain is so bad that I can barely walk sometimes, and I almost just want to go to the hospital (but I'm stubborn and I refuse to go).

I was just wondering if it is normal for a miscarriage to cause such pain and regulate your period?

  • First of all, I'm sorry for your loss. I had a miscarriage and D&C in july, and it's not easy. There could possibly a chance that your body is settling down hormonally after the pregnancy. However, you should not be stubborn, please visit the hospital or a doctor soon if it is still continuing. If you had a D&C (or even if the miscarriage didn't expel everything), there could be foetal tissue left behind from the procedure and that could be infected, causing you bleeding and pain. I experienced no pain from my miscarriage except for the night of the D&C, then it was over. However, my body took a long time to adjust hormonally, and I was getting my period every couple of weeks for a while. Visit your doctor, it can only help. Your reproductive area is not something you want to mess around with, as when you decide you want to have children you really don't want to experience complications that have arisen from past doing. Hope this helps. Good luck
