Hi!
Most people will get their menstrual period within 4-6 weeks following a miscarriage.  If you don't start your periods. I would suggest taking another test by the end of March.  Certailnly by then it should be positive if that is the reason.  Another possible reason is something called Asherman's syndrome which is scarring of the lining of the uterus.  One way to test for that, would be to have a person take birth control pills for an entire cycle.  If there was no bleeding at the end of the package, then a hysteroscopy could be considered to check to for scarring.

Hope this is helpful!
