How long after a miscarriage did your period start?

I had a miscarriage October 6th. I was wondering when my period would start. I want to have 1 period before we ttc again.

  • My doctor indicated that a miscarriage essentially "restarts the clock" on having a period. My period began a month after my miscarriage at 12 weeks. I was also instructed to allow 2 to 3 periods to occur before trying again...

  • It depends on how far along you were, if it was during the first trimester it should return in a few weeks. If it was in the second trimester it could be as long as 6 weeks. Mine did not return for 6 weeks and my OB said to wait 3 months, I was 18 weeks when I had my son. Good luck TTC and I'm sorry for your loss :(

  • The baby past away at 6 weeks and 3 days. I had a D&C at 9 weeks and 6 days, October 6th. I had to have a second D&C October 13th because they left a lot of stuff behind the first time.

  • I was almost 7 weeks when I miscarried on August 23 and I still haven't had mine yet
