Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 2 years ago.
It sounds like you most likely have not ovulated since your miscarriage. Ovulation is what brings on a normal period 2 weeks later.
When a woman goes long enough without ovulating and without a period, the uterine lining can build up, and then eventually bleeding will start, as you're having.
Also, when a woman doesn't ovulate, her ovaries may continue to be stimulated, which can result in high estrogen levels. The high estrogen can cause many of the symptoms of pregnancy, such as nausea and breast tenderness.
I would recommend that you see your doctor. Some progesterone pills will bring on a normal period, and then the irregular bleeding will stop. If you wish to become pregnant, your doctor can give you pills to help induce ovulation. Best wishes.
