Retained tissue: This sounds like there could be retained pregnancy tissue that was not completely expelled. You should see your gyn for further evaluation-- a D&C may be in order.

Poss. Not complete: If you had an incomplete miscarriage, you may still need a procedure called a d&c, to remove any tissue left. Especially important to prevent serious infection. If you had BV before, the symptoms of that may have flaired. Bv is bacterial vaginitis. I recommend an eval asap.

2 menstrual cycles: It is possible to get pregnant within a few weeks of a miscarriage before you have had your next period. I usually advise my patients to wait for a normal menstrual period. Usually the period after a miscarriage is abnormal, it can be early or late, very heavy or light. Wait until you have a normal period to let your body and hormones recover before trying for another pregnancy.

What are some ways of coping with pregnancy loss?

HELP organization: This is a wonderful organization, help after neonatal death, that has been good to many of us. I think pregnancy loss is a place where people who haven't experienced it really don't understand. They often say the wrong things in the wrong way and the help people really get it. I'm sorry for your loss.
