How long does it take to physically and mentally recover from a miscarriage?
1 in 4-6 women can miscarry. For most women, the recovery is rather fast and after 1 week, most women have recovered so much so that they can return to work if they so desire. after 1 month, the menstrual period usually returns. This indicates that the female hormones have more or less returned to normal and so the resumption of menses. For most of these women, it probably means a return to ovulation and fertility. The physical recovery is relatively fast and women can usually start sexual intercourse after 1 month. The emotional recovery may take a bit longer and there is no hard and fast rule as to how long this would take as women's desire to conceive again varies tremendously.
