Don't worry: It may take a while your body to readjust and your periods to get back to normal after a miscarriage. Try to relax and allow yourself to get back to normal both emotionally and physically. I am sorry for your loss. It is also normal to go through a grieving process following a miscarriage. You use reliable birth control and avoid pregnancy for at least six months.
