Unusual cycle after miscarriage

Hi all, new to mumsnet and hoping to get some guidance from some more experienced ladies.
On May 17th this year I found out I was pregnant, and although a surprise we were thrilled. I had done a test as I was around a week late (not so unusual for me) and my boobs were so so so tender. Normally I get tender breasts 1 week before I'm due my period for around 5 days, but this extended to nearly 2 weeks so I knew something was up.
Unfortunately on May 28th I miscarried our little prawn, at around 6 weeks.

After a 5 week wait, I eventually had my period again for 1 week. I didn't get my normal tender breasts a week before, and was much heavier than normal. We started trying to get pregnant at this point, and I was doing an ovulation test at the same time every day.
6 weeks later and I'm now 15 days late for my period, and don't seem to have ovulated at all (only 1 occasion where it may have been positive but not strong enough line to be confident), pregnancy tests coming back negative. I haven't had my usual period signifier of tender breasts at all, though have had a week of particularly bad skin and a bit of pms around a week ago.
I thought I may have had a slight pink tinge to my vaginal mucus on Saturday but still no period.

I know people will say it takes a while to get back to normal, but I'm bewildered by what's going on/not going on, but don't feel I have enough to go to he doctor about.

Would really appreciate any advice you might be able to give, I'm hoping someone has had a similar experience.

Thanks in advance,

Update: I was uploading this on my phone on the loo at work.
When I clicked create- I realised I've literally just come on my period.
Now I feel silly.

Sorry to hear about your miscarriage.
I miscarried at 11 weeks in the middle of May. My first period came exactly 28 days afterwards, my usual cycle, but was quite heavy and clotty. I didn't get the usual breast tenderness either.
We started trying again after this, but I didn't test for ovulation. My next period arrived after 23 days, and I was very confused!
I got some opks and ovulated on day 12 of the next cycle and I'm now 5.4 weeks pregnant!
I think my body just needed to settle down a bit and heal a little more, and I wasn't in a good place emotionally prior to that.
Give yourself a little time to heal, and hope you get your bfp soon.
