D&C followed by warm feeling in legs, then pain
I had a D&C 6 days ago, at 9 weeks pregnancy. From the day of the procedure, I started having a type of "warm feeling" from the centre of my bum down to the middle of my hamstring. (right leg only) This would last a few seconds, and occur about ten times a day. Today the back of both my legs started aching from just below the bum to just below the knee. It's a kind of numbing pain. The pain doesn't go away like the "warm feeling".Also, the bleeding from the procedure hasn't stopped yet. Is this all normal? Should I worry? I'd be very thankful if you could help me.

I can't explain the leg ache, but it is normal to still have some bleeding 6 days after a D&C. It should get less and less though.
