    hello I had a miscarriage on 4-1-13 i was 6 weeks. so i went to see my doc and he checked my blood level to see if the level went down on the 4-8-13 and it was back to 0 so i didnt have to get any medication. he said it was a natural miscarriage where it did not attach so that is why i had the misscarraige. but here it is 5-1-13 n no period yet. me and my boyfriend have not been using protection. so could i be pregnant again or my period is just not back yet.

    Hello there..I am so sorry for your loss (((hugs)))...
    What Drs usually tell us after a loss is that the normal range to see period come back is 6-8 weeks after the m/c..if you m/c naturally on 4-1 then it could still take another full two weeks before you see it arrive...some women even take longer than the 8 weeks and some do take less time...I myself have been through numerous losses in my lifetime and most of the time I will see her come back around 5-6 weeks after the loss..if you would like some peace of mind though do get yourself a home pregnancy test and try that out with first morning urine and if it's negative then you'll probably be seeing her in the next two could also go in to voice your concerns to your Dr. and he/she would do a urine analasis or even blood draw to check for a new pregnancy...
    Good luck and keep us posted xo
    PS: I wanted to mention that this board is for women who are pregnant now after a loss..there is a coping with pregnancy loss board and there is also a trying to conceive after a loss board as well where you will find many amazing women who have all been through one or more losses and who know how you're feeling about all can find me on that board too..
