It depends on how far along the miscarriage is and whether you had a d and c or it was natural. There is not much recovery unless you had significant blood loss. Expect bleeding on and off for about a month. Your period should come within 6 weeks of the miscarriage being complete. You should not become pregnant until you have a period. If you become pregnant right after a miscarriage, your risk of having another is increased. I hope this helps.
