It depends: You should discuss this with your doctor or a fertility specialist (reproductive endocrinologist). Most people who have a miscarriage do not have a problem and have a good chance of having a normal pregnancy next time. However, you should be evaluated by a doctor before trying to conceive again to make certain that you are doing everything you can to lower your risks for miscarriage next time.

Clomiphene is ok: Clomiphene is ok to take 2 months after a miscarriage. Miscarriages occur for reasons mostly unrelated to clomiphene.
