Ovulating after miscarriage

Patient

Q: Hi, I had a D&C on November 12 and was wondering around what dates I would be ovulating; and also when I should be expecting my period to arrive. Thank you

Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
It is difficult to tell the time of ovulation and menstruation after D&C.
It depends on factors like how much depth of endometrium was removed during D&C and at what gestational age D&C was done etc.
So, if you want to detect the time of ovulation, better to use ovulation kits after around two weeks of D&C or you can take the help of ultrasound with your doctor's advice.
Usually, menstruation occurs around two weeks after ovulation.
Take care.
