Soon: We usually expect you to resume normal monthly cycles about 6 to 8 weeks after a miscarriage. That assumes that you were regular before your pregnancy? It's not unreasonable to check a pregnancy test and make sure that your pregnancy hormone level resolved to negative after the miscarriage. If your miscarriage was incomplete, that would also delay your next period.
