Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
After miscarriage, usually there is discharge for 14-21 days and the color changes from frank bleeding to brownish to yellow to clear. If it was a vey early first trimester miscarriage, then you can start immediately trying.
However if it was late first trimester or later miscarriage, it is wiser to wait for 3 months before conceiving again. Please discuss with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
