Is it too soon?

Hey everyone , I have a question ? I just had a miscarriage on September 30th . Officially passed the baby on October 1st :( . We want to try again , my doctor suggested after my first period. But , how do I know if it's my period or still side effects from the miscarriage? Also , I took cytotec. So , any advice? I know you aren't doctors.... but , I was wondering if any of you went through something similar , and can share your experience or give me advice.
