I GOT 2 QUESTIONS?
how long after a very early misscarage does it take to get your period again?
well i had a misscarage at about 5 or 5 1/2 weeks PG.well my period was due febuary 26(my periods are every 28days)well i took a PG test feb.28 it was positive so had an appointment like 2weeks from that date. so like 1 weeks after i would of had my period i started bleeding and cramping so went to the hospital and they said i was having a misscarage.so sometime this week will be exactly a month since i had the misscarage so i was wondering if your period is still regular after a misscarage or irregular for any of you out there that has had a misscarage?
and for the 2nd Question- can u get PG before you have your 1st period after your miscarage?

In general, you can expect your period to return four to six weeks after a miscarriage; for some women, it doesn't happen for up to twelve weeks. You might expect your first period after miscarriage to be different -- for some women, they are heavier or lighter than normal. After your second cycle, things should be back to normal.

As for your second question, yes, you can get pregnant again after a miscarriage. Pregnancy tests may not be accurate at this point, because the hormones from your previous pregnancy may not have completely dissipated yet. If you have reason to suspect you're pregnant again, you'd need to visit a healthcare professional to be certain.

Aria,

You're wrong about the pregnancy hormone geting out of you. By the way it's called HCG. HCG is usually out of you by the time you're all done passing everything from your miscarriage. I KNOW THIS!! I have had 2 miscarriages and 1 still birth. I know what I'm talking about here!!

Everyone is different, every body is different. They(drs) say you should usually get your period between 4-6 weeks. I have never known anyone to go longer than this. Anyways, you can get pregnant after a miscarriage, but it's recommended to wait 3-4 cycles before trying again.

Actually sunflowerbabe, Aria is correct. hCG can stay in your blood for up to 4 weeks after a miscarriage, the length of time that that the hCG lingers depends on how long you were pregnant for, thus how high your hCG was at the time of the miscarriage.

Check out the following site, and I called Telehealth Ontario to verify.
