My beta levels dropped at 20dpd3t and I was told that the pregnancy was lost and to stop progesterone and estrace. I know they want to see my levels drop below 5 but was wondering if anyone knows how long it generally takes to begin a period after this.
Aside from the huge emotional component, my body just feels awful - bloated, still some pg symptoms, uterine pressure (hey, sharing is caring, right? ). I'm hoping that getting my period will help with this but am also wondering what to expect - heavier or crampier than a regular period maybe?
Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks and baby dust to the rest of you.

I just wanted to say how very sorry I am to hear of your loss. I can't even imagine what you're going through.
Maybe the ladies on the miscarriage/loss board would be able to help?
I will be praying that you recover quickly and that your dreams of a child are realized very soon.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, it really depends on the person. Some women get their period after 1 month, some it takes 2 or 3.
With it being so early, you may not have much more than a heavy period, if that (which, in it's own way can be sad, to). The pregnancy symptoms generally abate at the same rate at which you experienced them. So, if you were pregnant for 5 weeks, it may take 5 weeks for them to go away, but if you weren't symptomatic until 2 weeks past transfer, you may see them go away in 3 weeks. Don't know if that makes any sense?
When I lost Sloane at 8 weeks, I bled for 2 months (not normal) and then got my TRUE period after I'd missed one more.
