Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If you are having persisting bleeding on and off since miscarriage, then it is important to rule out retained products of contraception. The HCG levels may be normal but if there is some remnant of pregnancy remaining, then it can cause bleeding on and off. An ultrasound may help. D and C may help.
Sometimes this bleed is due to poor hormone balance.

If your doctor is sure there are no retained products of contraception then you may be prescribed some pills to balance your hormone levels.

Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance.
