I had my miscarriage on December 22 and my D&C on the 23rd.  My period came about 5 weeks later and was heavier than normal.  Mine lasted longer than my usual period too.  To give you an idea of the heaviness...I usually wear a regular tampon throughout the first 3 days of my period then a light tampon for a couple days after.  My last period which was my first on since the miscarriage was different....regular tampon the first day then a super tampon for the next 3 days.  I had to change it every 3 hours.  It was super heavy.  Then it lightened up after those three days were over.  Everyone is different so I am simply telling you what happened to me.  My doctor told me to expect a heavier period for the first one.
