As long as she had a positive pregnancy test, and now has a negative pregnancy test, the scenario you have described is very possible.
Many women with a miscarriage will have quite heavy bleeding with craps, but some women will have only mild bleeding or a normal period.
How long hormones remain depends on how high the hormone level is at the time of miscarriage.
If the hcg levels are low but consistent with pregnancy, and then a miscarriage occurs, we call it a chemical pregnancy. Bleeding after that are very unpredictable.
Hcg levels can be very low in a failed pregnancy (one destined for miscarriage). The placenta (which produces hcg) never develops very well.
A pregnancy won't show up on ultrasound until the hcg level is fairly high (over 1000).
As long as a blood test showed that she was pregnant, and now shows that she's not, she had a chemical pregnancy, the pregnancy died, and now she's no longer pregnant.
When did she have a positive pregnancy test (blood or urine)?
That's not clear. Did she ever have a positive pregnancy test?
If she never had a positive pregnancy test, there is no way to be sure that she was ever pregnant. Many women have pregnancy symptoms and miss periods, but are not pregnant.
I suspect that your sister was not pregnant, and therefore had no miscarriage.
No pregnancy means no miscarriage. Regardless of what has happened with her periods.
