I am in my 6th week after miscarriage and still no period confused
Also if I am pregnant it makes it difficult to work out dates as I don't have my last period to go by so how do i work out if I am late?

Mine was quite quick, think 5 weeks or so. You won't be able to work out of you're late until you've had a normal period. I think that the reason the doctors like you to wait a month before trying again.

Have you done a pregnancy test? It's not unusual for the first cycle to take longer than normal. Mine after recent MC was 5 weeks, 1 longer than normal, and was actually quite surprised because it took 3 weeks after MC to get a negative test so thought it might take longer.
If you are pregnant then it's a perfect excuse to have an early dating/reassurance scan....

Messtins...I don't think I am pregnant even though i get weird feelings in my belly (which maybe is to do with my body getting back to it's normal self) I did a pregnancy test 10 and 12 days after unprotected sex (unprotected sex being 3 weeks ago) and it was negative. I don't seem to have any pregnancy symptoms to make me feel i should do another test but am wondering if 10-12 days was too soon hmm

My first AF arrived today - exactly 26 days since my ERPC - my previous cycle was always bang on 26 days, so it's seems normal service has resumed for me :-(

There's a woman on the TTC after MC thread who has had a really long cycle after MC and used acupuncture - seems to have finally got things going again for her. I think you are still well within the realms of normal, but if nothing happens in the next week and you are still BFN, maybe it's worth considering?
