Patient

Q: I had a miscarriage on 01/21/2014 I stopped bleeding on 01/29/2014 then on 02/10/2014 got my period it lasted 5 days on March 2nd had spotting for one day nothing after that took a blood test 2 days ago came back negative can you explain please

Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
After undergoing abortion, it will take some time for regularization of hormonal levels and menstrual cycles.
Hormonal fluctuation could be one possible cause of your irregular periods and intermenstrual spotting.
As your blood test for pregnancy gave a negative result, the possibility of retained products or new pregnancy is less.
So, please observe next cycles, possibly menstrual cycles may regularize without treatment.
If not, consult your doctor and get evaluated.

Take care
