It is normal for your periods to be wonky after a miscarriage. It can take a few cycles to get back to normal.

Many doctors recommend waiting a few cycle to try to conceive again 1) it allows your cycle to return to normal and makes dating a pregnancy easier and 2) it gives you time to work through your grief before adding the additional emotional roller coaster of TTC.

(((hug))) I am so sorry for your loss and wish you all the best
