It usually takes four to six weeks for your periods to return after a miscarriage, although it can take longer to settle into a regular cycle.

It usually takes 4 to 6 weeks for your periods to return after a miscarriage, although it can take longer to settle into a regular cycle.

The length of time it takes will depend on how regular your periods were before your pregnancy.

It's worth seeing your GP for advice if your periods have not returned after 4 to 6 weeks and your cycle was regular before your pregnancy.

There are no firm guidelines about when you can try to get pregnant again, although it's often recommended that you wait until you have had at least 1 regular period.

It's also important to be sure you're emotionally ready to try for another pregnancy after a miscarriage.
