What’s wrong with my body?

I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks on Thanksgiving, so it’s been 3 weeks since. I never had a D&C, I just bled for about a week and had lots of clots. The doctor told me my hcG levels were at 91, but my urine test still came back positive. But she was pretty certain I had a miscarriage. My boobs still haven’t went back to normal. Very vainey, enlarged nipples, and now the nipples are dry and rough. Could this just be the dry winter weather? When will my body go back to normal? I still have not gotten my period.

Very sorry to hear about your miscarriage sweetie.  I know that is hard.  So, our hormones really shift with pregnancy and then shift back after a miscarriage. That means we will have changes because of these hormonal shifts.  I'd guess that you are probably having the hormones still circulating a bit causing some of this.  Your doctor can always re evaluate you but it sounds like the remnants of hormones from the pregnancy leaving your system.  I'm again, so very sorry!  Being irregular is pretty common after a miscarriage.  How far along were you do you think?  Are you going to try again?
I was told I was about 6 weeks. I’m not planning on trying again because I’m only 18, I’m just confused and never been through anything like this before
