Best Time to Plan for Pregnancy after Miscarriage

Don’t be in a hurry. Medically you can get pregnant again after you had one or more periods. However, emotionally you may not be in a state to try again so soon. It will take time to recover from the grief of losing a baby.

Meanwhile, your doctor might also ask you to undergo some tests to find out the reasons for your miscarriage. In that case, you may need to wait until the test results are available and your doctor gives you a green signal to try for your next pregnancy.

Things that might Help you Get through this Difficult Time and have a Healthy Pregnancy

Give yourself enough time to heal emotionally as well as physically before attempting to get pregnant again. Taking professional’s help or counseling also helps to get rid of your emotional problem.

Once you get an OK from your doctor, you may start preparing for your next pregnancy. Here are certain ways that will help you to go through this
difficult time:

  • Talk to someone who had a miscarriage earlier, but had a successful pregnancy after. This can be a great source of encouragement.
  • Request frequent prenatal visits to your doctor although you are not at high risk medically. This will give you a sense of satisfaction.
  • Never compare your this pregnancy with the earlier one, as no two pregnancies are same to avoid unnecessary worries.
