Well, i'm not real sure how they actually detected it. All i know is that they tested the baby and all the tissue and didn't find anything so they took 11 tubes of blood from me and tested me for everything and this is what came up. It was kinda expensive, but I had insurance so they have paid for most of it. And in the end, does cost really matter if it will prevent this from happening again?
I too had that Dark brown/red discharge. I was concerned about it so I kept calling my doctor and he assured me it was ok. The pain is probably because you are doing too much. When I had my D&C I was on bed rest for almost two weeks because I had so much bleeding and some pain. Just take it easy for the next week or so and give your self time to heal, physically and mentaly.
