A 25-year-old female asked:
After a misscarriage at 5 1/2 months is it okay to get pregnant once hcg levels have returned to 0 or should you still have two regular periods first?

Wait...: When you say miscarriage at 5-6 months, you mean that you miscarried somewhere around 20-24 weeks? This is an unusual situation and requires a thorough review of the circumstances leading up to this loss - was it infection, cervical incompetence, uterine anomaly, etc. You need a visit with a high-risk OB before your next pregnancy.
