Hi everyone, I’m 40 years old and had a miscarriage at 14w5d on 30 Nov 2016. After a D&C and 2 weeks of intermittent but very heavy bleeding and clots following the D&C I was diagnosed with a uterine AVM following Doppler u/s.
I had a bilateral AVM embolisation the same day I was diagnosed (29 Dec 2016). Gel foam was used for the procedure.
Since the embolisation (now 1 week ago) I’ve had light spotting to start but the bleeding has now increased. I’m not passing massive clots like I was before the procedure and I’m not having the gushing blood that I had before the procedure. But I am concerned as it is heavier. I’ve spoken to my OB and the specialist that did the procedure and I’ve had another scan. They believe the procedure was successful and can’t see another AVM forming and it could perhaps be my body getting back to normal following the miscarriage and I’m just having my period.
I just don’t know what to think any more as I’ve now been bleeding for 5 weeks.
I’m just wondering what everyone else’s experience has been with bleeding following a uterine AVM embolisation??
