In brief: 6 weeks

It is actually a cervix that opens and closes during a miscarriage.
The uterus gets enlarged in pregnancy and has to return to normal size after a misscarriage. It can take approximately 6 weeks for a uterus to contract down to prepregnancy state. But many facotrs may affect this time. One such factor is how far along you were when the miscarriage occurred.
