Hi Anon,

That will help your doctor know what can be causing all these symptoms.

Best of luck,

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  It takes a few weeks to a month or more to recover physically from a miscarriage. Your recovery will depend on how far along you were into the pregnancy. Some women experience the following physical effects:

Vaginal bleeding, similar to a menstrual period, may last up to a week after a miscarriage.

Light bleeding, or spotting.

Depending on your menstrual cycle, normal periods should resume in 3-6 weeks.

Lower abdominal pain similar to menstrual cramps may last up to 2 days after the miscarriage.

Breast discomfort, engorgement or leaking milk; ice packs and a supportive bra may relieve discomfort. This discomfort usually stops within a week.

Some pregnancy hormones remain in the blood for one to two months after a miscarriage.

You might need to let your doctor know how you feel.

Here are some resources for you
