    Hi girls, this is a bit tmi but I'm gonna be worrying until tomorrow is i don't ask...

    Well since about a couple hours ago everytime I've been to loo when I wipe I can smell the blood on the tissue, and is absolutely disgusting, doesn't smell like normal period and I didn't have this with my other mc...

    Does anyone know what this is or whats causing it, ive tried having a look online but hasn't got alot of info.
    Thanks x

    Hi peanutbutter, firstly I am very sorry to her that you are going through this again, huge hugs!

    I do remember the smell while I went through mine, it was a kind of sick type smell, I can't quite describe. I didn't know what it was and just assumed it was normal because it wasn't a period that was coming away. I had no infections or anything so didn't let it worry me.

    Look after yourself honey xx

    I don't remember this from my natural mc but I did have this after my erpc.

    It smelled like the sanitary bins in the hospital!

    I didn't have an infection but if you are worried hun then don't hesitate to get yourself checked out.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss.

    :hug:

    Hey. Sorry about the MC.
    I remember mine smelling like iron/metal very strongly. It reminded me of the bleeding I had after my daughter was born.
    I'm not sure what the smell was but it wasn't anything to worry about with me. Good luck, I hope you don't have an infection or anything xx

    Sorry you are going through this again :( it really sucks! I noticed this with my last MC actually, I contacted the nurse at the EPu and she said should be okay as long as your not getting other symptoms....to be honest I cant remember what they were, sorry! Maybe just check with doctor or someone just in case x

    It smells because it's a mixture of blood, mucous and tissue. It's very similar to the lochia that is bled after child birth. I've had it with all 5 of my mc, it shouldn't be anything to worry about xx
