  • I think it all depends. I am sorry for your loss. I just recently miscarried this New Years Day. When I had my firs period after our lost, it was dark red. I think your body is still cleaning itself out from the miscarriage. You can try asking a nurse at your OB office.

  • For starters I am so sorry for your loss.
    I read that it is not uncommon to have irregular periods after a miscarriage. They may be light, they may be heavy. It said that having a miscarriage can throw your body off balance. Hope this helps.
