  • Because you are at higher risk of infection.

  • my cousin was told to wait ntil she gets a period before trying to concieve again, so that she'd know how far along she'd be in a pregnancy...if she were to get pregnant
    waiting 2 weeks after a miscarriage is like waiting 6 weeks after childbirth....u're body changes and needs time to heal before having sex....and as AngelLnChainZ said....u are at a higher risk of infection

  • I was told it's becasue the cervix is not completely closed yet which leaves you open to infection that could get into your bloodstream. We waited.
