User avatar Hello,
It is entirely possible your body is just adjusting after the miscarriage. Almost all women have times when they have extra periods or miss them without any problems being present. Just give it a little time and things will probably settle down -or you may become pregnant, of course. If you continue to bleed more frequently you should see a doctor to find out the cause.

Best wishes.
