Have you had a period since your miscarriage? If not, then that explains it. Frequently after a MC, you’re cycles are a bit wonky/longer than usual. I’ve rarely heard of someone having a MC and then getting AF on the same schedule they usually do. Your body needs time to recover.

I had an early miscarriage in jan, just got my first period after, and my cycle was 4-5 days longer than usual.  I read other people have had 6-8 weeks before getting it after miscarriage.

There’s always a chance that you could be pregnant, the only thing you can do is wait a few more days and test again.

sometimes things happen.  i just finished cycle 4 of ttc.  i am typically perfect 28 day cycles, one cycle i was 24 days.

this cycle, AF came today, 2 days late on CD30.  don’t know why i was late but it happened. (and i had my hopes up too)

Like PP said, have you had a period since the actual MC? It took me a full 6 weeks for my period to show after my MC(I was also around 8-9 weeks)… but it also took my body a week for all the hcg to clear out of my system…


could you be pregnant? Sure… But I wouldn’t count in it unless you had a period after the MC

@lastlastfirst:  I’m sorry for your loss.  I agree with PPs – your cycle will take longer to regulate after a m/c as it takes a while for the HCG to fully leave your system.  Typically, it will take longer if you naturally m/c than if you have a D&C.

@lastlastfirst:  Hi,  sorry you had a mc. I’ve had two periods since my MC (at 10 weeks) and both cycles have been longer than my original 29 cycle. Also, I only Od one day late. Keep testing, because you never know,  but I’d say it’s just a small change in your cycle length.
