Miscarriage and periods

I miscarried in January of this year. Had a D&C and received my 1st period after the D&C about a few weeks after the surgery. I am now 36 days late with my period. I have taken several pregnancy test. All are negative. Is this normal?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you not to worry--it is very common for periods to be somewhat irregular in the period following a miscarriage.  Usually we expect 3 months or so for the cycles to sort themselves out.  If you continue to have irregular periods beyond that point, you should definitely discuss it with your doctor.
Good luck!
