  • You can get pregnant again before you have your next period, so I would maybe check that out. It happened to me, I had a miscarriage at 6w and then got pregnant again right away. If you're not pregnant it could still be some old pregnancy hormones affecting your period. I know most Drs will recommend waiting 3 months before ttc again, partly for your body to get back to normal and partly for emotional reasons. I didn't wait, I was ready emotionally to be pregnant again. It probably depends on how far along you were. I also had a miscarriage at 12w and it took longer to get back to normal cycle-wise after that.
