After : After having a miscarriage it can take months for your hormones to normalize. For this reason, you are having irregular periods (length, consistency, and amount of blood). Typically i tell my patients to wait until they have had 3 normal periods before trying to conceive again. This way i know that their uterine lining is normal and their hormones have stabilized. This will give a woman better odds of sustaining the next pregnancy. I know it is hard to suffer a miscarriage and want a baby right away, but give your body a little time to recover, and soon enough you will be pregnant again, and hopefully have no problems whatsoever. Best of luck.
