  • I was told to wait a few weeks to have sex when I had a miscarriage. And do be careful you don't get pregnant right away. Well, that was my doctors advice anyways... let your body heal correctly so it may properly carry your baby.

    Good luck!

  • They recommmend you have one cycle after a miscarriage before you try again. The silver lining is your fertility just got a boost. Your chances of conceiving again are better. Give yourself some time to heal and try again when you are ready. One of my friends was pregnant again before she even had one cycle. Not that I recommend it. Sorry for your loss.

  • My doctor told us to wait one cycle for the sole purpose of being able to accuratly date the pregnancy. Make sure you have recovered emotionally before trying again. I'm sorry for your loss and good luck in the future!
