    hello,am so sorry for the loss of the baby.your body system still feels like it's pregnant which is quite normal as it takes some months(even up to 6months sometimes) for your body to return to it's pre-pregnancy state.thats why u havent seen your menses.your menses will surely come.put your mind at rest.you can start trying to conceive again now.
