  • I don't know if the Medical field considers it dangerous, however, I know my Sister-In-Law has issues which makes it impossible to carry a pregnancy unless she gets pregnant within so many weeks of a miscarriage.

  • Every person and situation is different. I would speak with your Ob/gyn and they should be able to tell you when you can try and why. Good Luck.

  • I agree with others, it depends on you, your body and the extreme of your previous m/c. Everything I have read online suggests waiting at least 3 months - more if you need it for emotional healing. That doesn't mean things WILL go wrong if you don't, but your body just needs time as do your emotions. We got pg between 2-3 months. I had some spotting but I also had spotting with my 4th so it probably had nothing to do with the m/c.

  • It depends on your body. My OB told me it was perfectly fine for me to start TTC again whenever I was ready after my last miscarriage. I am now 7 months pregnant (I got pregnant again right away). So far everything is normal.

  • Not really, no. I got pregnant on the very first cycle after a loss, and my son was 8lbs 10ozs, huge and healthy. And that was with very poor nutrition until about 7 months along, and not taking my prenatal vitamins because they made me so sick.
