Prolonged bleeding after miscarriage
I had a miscarriage on 4th Feb, D&C on 6th Feb. I am still bleeding - different strenghts and coloured blood everyday. i.e. Dark brown to light pink blood. This has been going on now for 18 days - surely this is not right anymore. I accepted that I would bleed, but everyone I've spoken to has said I should have stopped by now. How long is normal?

The bleeding should get less and less over a few weeks. If it is not, you should go back to your doctor.
