I was pregnant and the last ultrasound showed no heartbeat. How long will it take for my body to miscarry naturally?

In brief: Sorry 4 your loss

Often within 2-3 wks the body will know of a nonviable pregnancy and will spontaneously abort it.
If very early, you may not feel any different than your usual period. If later in pregnancy, say 2-3 months, the arbortifact may be seen as it passes along with likely heavier period/more cramping than usual. Keep good hydration, motrin/aleve may help. Consult your doc. Wishing u better luck next time.
