6 weeks.: Please accept my condolences for your loss. Any pregnancy that reaches the third trimester should be followed by a 6 week postpartum period of no intercourse and rest to allow for the reproductive organs to recover and involute. After that, whenever you feel emotionally ready to try for another conception is fine. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily, see your ob/gyn regularly and best of luck!
