When to Expect Your Period after a Miscarriage

After a miscarriage you may be devastated, but it is not uncommon to begin to wonder right away when you will get your period again so you can begin trying to conceive all over again. Miscarriages are devastating, but the way that many of us cope is to start planning again for the future, otherwise we could get lost in our grief. Your doctor has likely told you that you need to wait until you have had a normal period and then you can begin trying to conceive again. So, when will you get your period?

Every woman is different, but generally you can expect to get your period in four to six weeks. Some women get their period just a couple weeks later, while some women do not get their period for three or more months. Your specific situation will be different than any other womans. So, when do I start counting from now until four weeks, you might ask? You should expect to get your period about four weeks after a D&C and you might expect to see your period around six weeks after a miscarriage that did not require a D&C. Remember that what is normal really varies widely, but if something doesnt feel right or it has been more than 12 weeks you might want to put a call into your doctor to be sure that all is well.

Also, you need to remember that if you are having unprotected sex, you can become pregnant again soon after having a miscarriage. It is generally thought that you are not fertile for four to six weeks after a miscarriage, but many women have conceived as little as two weeks after a miscarriage. If it has been a few weeks since your miscarriage and you havent see your period and you have symptoms of pregnancy, it wouldnt be out of the question to buy a home pregnancy test to be sure that you are not pregnant, stranger things have happened!

Ideally is it a good idea to wait at least one cycle before you begin trying to conceive again after a miscarriage. If for some reason you do conceive earlier it generally isnt an issue. Its also important to remember that your previous miscarriage usually isnt an indication that you will not be able to carry another pregnancy to term. The best thing to do is to take time to grieve your miscarriage and only move on to trying to conceive again when you are emotionally ready so you are in the best emotional place possible to get pregnant. A miscarriage can be hard, but soon you will have a normal period and you will be ready to try again!

    bethany, I miscarried on Jan 20 2013 and now its Feb 22 and I haven’t started my period either. From what I’ve read it can take anywhere from 4-7 weeks to get your period after a miscarriage and some women even take a few months before their period returns.

    Hello ladies I miscarried on my daddys bday 3/4/13 and it is now 6/12/13 and still no normal period and my MD wants me to have two normal cycles before I can start trying again, but I have been trying for almost 5yrs now and I was super impatient at first but through consistent prayer and meditation I am finally at peace with it and just staying faithful for the best, but like denise said anything 12wks or more you should see your MD/GYN…MANY blessings to all

    I am short of words, but all i can say is a thank you to Dr zogo for making me and my family a happy home, i have been married for 2 years without a child and i had 4 miscarriage within this time, i saw a post that says contact Dr zogo for Infertility help, so i did, after he cast a pregnancy spell on me i get pregnant few weeks later, and i am 7 months pregnant now without any complications, so i decide to drop this here for any body going through infertility problem to contact Dr zogo on zogospellcasters@gmail.com and you will be happy you did.

    I ha a miscarriage around Thanksgiving of 2014… I still haven’t had a period and I took a home pregnancy test last night and it came out positive… I don’t want to get my hopes up and not be pregnant. Please any advice!!!

    Did you have unprotected sex during that month? If so, you could be pregnant. The pregnancy hormone (hcg) should be out of your system now. You might want to get the doctor to do a blood test to find out what level of hcg you have in your system.

  • stacie

    I had a miscarriage about the same time as you and I am belong getting a faint positive. Test again tomorrow and see if it’s getting darker. If it’s still there, call your doctor and make an appointment for them to check your levels. Good luck to you! 😉
