What causes dizziness and nausea after miscarriage?

I just had a miscarriage, in fact, I just stopped bleeding 2 days ago. The bleeding was very heavy, I would bleed through a tampon and pad every 1-2 hours on average. Whenever I have stood up today I get very dizzy and nauseous and I have chills. Why is this happening?

The more likely causes for your symptoms are-1. Anemia due to the heavy bleeding. 2. Postural hypotension due to after effects of the abortion, namely anemia, hypoglycemia and loss of fluid-electrolyte balance. 3. Retained products, if any, can cause infection leading to persistent bleeding, fever etc. This can be excluded through a trans-vaginal sonogram. You need immediate medical attention to improve your condition. Please see a specialist for further management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
