I had a miscarriage in April of this year, it went ok and things went back to normal 28 days after it as I never had any problems with my periods, Then after the second month my period went haywire and it lasted for about 3 weeks, I had all the tests done, scans etc and doctor told me that it was disfunctional bleeding and he put me on a course of Primolut N for three months, 21 days with a free period of 7 days. This is my last month on them and I am hoping things will go back to normal now. Do you think they will

Thanks for the query.

Usually after miscarriage it will take sometime for regularization of the periods.
But as you got two normal periods after the miscarriage, that episode may not be responsible for your prolonged periods.
As all your investigations were normal, possibly dysfunctional uterine bleeding is the cause of your problem as your doctors told.
Generally in this condition no structural abnormality can be found and only hormonal imbalance can be noted.
So because of that your doctor might have put you on three cycles of hormonal pills.
Now, yes, there is a possibility of normalization of menstrual periods after the completion of three cycles of hormonal pills.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
