How long after a miscarriage do you wait to get prenant again?

My friend just had a miscarriage and was wondering how long after you have to wait to get pregnant again. She wants to try again right away but doesn't want it to happen again. Any answers would be greatly appreciated!!!

  • It all deoends on when you feel ready again. If you are emotionally ready to try again, then do so. It will happen when your body is ready.

  • It really depends on you and if you are ready both emotionally and physically. Many times a doctor can advise as to when they feel you are ready physically.

  • They told her to wait three months but she doesn't want to wait that long, I guess.

  • Emotionally ready is more important than physically. I've miscarried twice. after the post pardum bleeding stopped my doc said i can try after my first period after the miscarriage....both times i got pregnant very quickly and the pregnancies were perfect

  • When I misscarried my doctor told me to wait 6months before trying again. She said it takes a while for your body to recover. I do agree you also have to be ready emotionally.

  • I was told to wait one cycle. One of my friends got pregnant right away and had a healthy baby.

  • I think it's totally up to her and what she feels her body is ready for... I miscarried and I did not wait for my period to come back... I got pregnant 28 days from the I miscarried.. Best of luck to your friend. :) My 2nd pregnancy went very well, and I have a very healthy 6 month old.

  • my Dr. told me to wait 1 cycle

  • I would say it depends on how far along you were when you miscarried.
