Probably: After a miscarriage it is not uncommon to have some irregular bleeding for several weeks after the process is complete. If the bleeding is heavy, you should see your doctor because it could be a sign of infection or retained pregnancy products.

Probably normal: It would be common to have spotting and bleeding for even several weeks after a miscarriage. It can take up to six months to resume normal cycles after a miscarriage.
