Bleeding and pain after a miscarriage

Patient

Q: Hi, I recently found out on my 12 week pregnancy dating scan (05.03.2012) that I had suffered a missed miscarriage at around 11 weeks. I was subsequently booked into hospital and given drugs vaginally to bring on a miscarriage (09.03.2012). I then bled quite heavy for about a week and then just continued bleeding on and off, very lightly for the week after. In the last week I have had no bleeding at all. It is only almost 3 weeks since the miscarriage was brought on, I have started to bleed again and have period like pains, could this be my first period so early on?
