Hi there. Board-certified obgyn here.

I'm so sorry about your miscarriage. How frustrating.

It is pretty normal for that first period after a miscarriage to be very heavy and crampy. It is really unlikely that there's anything left from the pregnancy. If you wanted to be sure, you could take a pregnancy test. By 5 weeks out from your miscarriage, all your pregnancy hormone should be gone by now (if all the pregnancy tissue is gone too) and the test should be negative.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
