Yes: If somebody miscarries near term their milk may still come in. This is a cruel twist of nature. There are some medications that OB can prescribe to help dry up milk supplies.

How long do I need to wait to conceive after a miscarriage?

Dr. David Fein
Specializes in Preventive Medicine
Three months: Most physicians will recommend at least three months, for multiple reasons. Whether a spontaneous miscarriage or having had a d&c, one desire is to have the cervix regain it's strength of closure for future pregnancies. Other beliefs are that the uterus has prepared the lining for a healthy pregnancy after a number of menstrual periods. The best answer is about 3 months.

Is it possible to miscarry in the 3rd trimester?

Specializes in Gynecology
No: Sort of, but it wouldn't be called a miscarriage. If a fetus were to die in third trimester it would be an intrauterine fetal demise. If it were to deliver alive it would be preterm labor. Miscarriage technically refers to delivery of a fetus prior to 20 weeks.

Which ultrasound results suggest a miscarriage?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Parul Krishnamurthy
Obstetrics and Gynecology 34 years experience
Empty sac,no beat: Miscarriage on ultrasound is determined if a pregnancy sac is evident but no fetal pole is seen or there is a fetal pole but no fetal heart rate is seen. Absence of fetal pole, could be due to the pregnancy being extremely early, then a follow up ultrasound is advised in 1-2 weeks. At all times unless an intrauterine viable fetus is detected, an ectopic pregnancy is in the differential diagnosis.
