In brief: Yes
After a pregnancy loss most patients will bleed.
The length of time is variable from a few days to a few weeks. The normal menses should then resume. On occasion the bleeding continues, this may be a sign of retained tissue and should be investigated. The md will do blood tests, examination and ultrasound. If tissue is present a D&C or meds may be needed.
