Varies.: Most women report some degree of psychological distress after a miscarriage. However, according to mghcwmh only about 1 in 10 women actually meet criteria for major depression. Risk factors for depression after miscarriage include a prior history of depression, having inadequate social supports and being childless.

Miscarriage: First of all, sorry that happened 2u. Was this your first, what was the reason for it, and do u have a strong family support system?. In general, going thru a miscarriage is dealt with as a loss, hence grief process ensues, and supportive therapy helps u work thru your grief.
