Hi Anon

Thanks for your post and I'm very sorry you've gone through a miscarriage. It's a very hard time, physically and emotionally and I hope you have lots of support at home.

It can take 1-3 months for your reproductive system to regulate again so not having a period within 5 weeks sounds quite normal.

However, still feeling physically ill for five weeks is not normal and warrants a check up with your doctor to see why you are not recovering as quickly as you should. You may be anemic from a loss of blood from the miscarriage (that can cause nausea/fatigue) or your period may be coming soon as causing you pain from pre-menstrual syndrome.

Please schedule an appointment as soon as you can and  update us.
