    Only one period after miscarriage!

    On February 8th I was told that I was miscarrying and was sent home from emergency. I finished the miscarriage naturally. On March 12th I had my first period since, and it was completely normal. It is now 5 days late and I am wondering if it is normal, after having a normal period after miscarriage, if it can skip around. Took two tests a couple days apart, both negative. Wish I knew!!!

    Yep, pretty normal. Technically, you were pregnant and it can take your body a few weeks to a few months before your periods will return to normal.

    First off I'm terribly sorry for your loss. It's completely normal my friend had a miscarriage December 20th and she's only had two periods one the first week in February for only four days and the other the last week in march for nine days. Her doctor said it could take up to six months to a year to get back on track.
