Spotting all month after miscarriage

I had a natural miscarriage in may. It took 2months for my period to come back after the miscarriage.. the next period didnt come for 100 days after that...that leads to where im at now...about 85 days in this time i finally thought i was starting my period. ..its been pretty much nothing but spotting..enough i need to wear a pad but no where near a normal period for me. Im now on day 21 of curious could i still be dealing with the effects of my miscarriage?

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Yes, these can be the effects of the miscarriage and you may need an ultrasound to see if any part of pregnancy did not expel out. If this is the case you may need a D and C. At times, the cause is just hormonal and your doctor may prescribe some medicines to stop the spotting. However, it can also be due to pregnancy. So, please get a blood test for HCG estimation.

Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance.
