Light periods after D&C

I had a D&C early May for MAB at 11 weeks. My period flow is light compared with before the pregnancy/D&C. Does this light flow have any bearing on uterine ability to accept and nourish a fertilized egg? I am 41 and am anxious about fertility.

Thanks,

S

Dear S,

I do not know if the lighter periods have an impact on your ability to conceive. Your fertility does diminish after age 35. The recommendation for women age 35 and over is to consult a fertility specialist if you have tried for 6 months without success. Since it has been approximately 6 months since your miscarriage, you should consider making an appointment. An infertility specialist will be able to advise you about the light periods, as well.

Sincerely,
Amy
