AF started for me today (yay!) and its my first after my D&C. Is it normal for it to be really really heavy? Normally AF for me is reasonable heavy but this is crazy. sorry if TMI but its literally gushing out of me and there are lots of clots which are falling out in to the toilet when i go. I bled heaps after the D&C so i would have thought it all came out then? I havent been in that much pain although i had some sharp cramps on one side before i passed the biggest clot so far.
Sorry if its TMI but i didnt know if i should worry or not.

I had a really heavy one the first time after the D&C too. To the point I was changing tampons every two hours because any longer and it'd leak - sorry, way TMI.
The next one was weird, almost non-existent, and then the following one was heavy again.
I also lost a lot of blood during the D&C.
I'm not sure if it's normal, but you're not the only one, if that helps.
I'm not sure about the clots though. I got a few but not a heap.

I was also the same, gushed as soon as I stood up and had to keep changing every couple of hours. Also the bleeding was longer than my usual 4 days this went for like 8-9 not used to that at all . The next month did not get AF as I was expecting again the result is B/G twins who will be 1 in 3 weeks.

Thanks for your replies....good to know its normal. I hope its not this heavy for too long. Took a couple of panadeine and feel a bit better. I have been feeling a bit light headed too so might have an early night and hopefully sleep it off.
justcait2- i am hoping that is the case with me next cycle too

My first AF after D&C was also very heavy & mine are normally quiet light.
I also fell pregnant next cycle with Connor being end end result.
Goodluck, take care

I didn't have much bleeding after my D&C but my first AF I had a very heavy flow.
The clots aren't anything to worry about, sorry if TMI but when your bleeding heavy they are caused by blood pooling in the vagina and turning into clots.
