  • I'd say in 4-6 weeks,just like if you carried to term. You need to heal.

  • sex can resume after the bleeding stops.

    yes, if you have unprotected sex you can get pregnant. so if you're not wanting to you'll want to get on something or use condoms.

    there's no way of knowing if you'd miscarry again

  • So sorry mama. how far along were you?

    Sex should generally be ok, I believe. If you want to try again wait at least one cycle.

    There is no guarantee you will or won't miscarry again. Lots of women go on to have healthy pregnancies.

    If you are worried about birth control, try condoms, or make an appointment

  • I think it depends on whether you needed to have a dnc or not. Just call the hospital and ask.

  • You should use condoms until you're ready to conceive again, let yourself heal emotionally. As long as the bleeding has completly stopped you can have sex, If you are bleeding you could catch an infection. Sorry for your loss x

  • Most doctors will tell you to give your body 3 cycles or 3 months to recuperate before ttc again. You can get pregnant again before that, but you have higher chances of a subsequent miscarriage. As for sex I think it's similar to after birth, 4-6wks. When I had my miscarriage I was so hearbroken I wanted that pregnancy back so badly I didn't care what the drs said and we ttc again right away, well in the end it took 3 cycles to get pregnant again anyway, I think it truly takes about that long to be healthy and ready to nourish another pregnancy.

  • It really depends on how far along you were how long you need to wait for sex your cervix may need to close, you don't want to introduce an infection, as for trying again....I had several miscarriages in the first few weeks of pregnancy, and my doctor said to wait at least 3 months, but preferably 6 months before trying again.

  • PREGNANT.....

    just a little heads up here.
    ASK your Doctor about these issues.
