Hi I have just joined mumsnet after finding it in a search engine...firstly what a great site! I was also wondering if I could get some advice... I usually have regular periods. I always come on the 10th of every month. I had my second miscarriage on the 8th of feb. My partner and I havent been "trying" but also havent been too careful. I was wondering if its normal to be late after a miscarriage as i still havent come on. I dont want to get my hopes up, and am a little scared to buy a test as I dont want to temp fate. I know that sounds silly. Can anyone enlighten me... many thanks

hi it can take a month or so for your hormone levels to get back to normal

Yes it is very normal for the first period after m/c to be delayed I'm afraid. Sorry to hear about m/c.

Hi yes it is very normal for ur period to be late after mc, but it is also possible to get pg again without having a period. I would wait till 6 wks after mc then retest and if nothing a week after that then go and see your gp.
good luck and welcome

I cant believe how nice and friendly this site is and how quickly people reply. I think although i know its quite normal to be late after a M/C. I usually have signs of coming on and i just dont feel like i am going to. Also i am occaisionally feeling a little nauseous. Will wait another week before i start to look into it too much :D

thanks again for all your help and support
