22 week loss: I am sorry for your loss. Please take the time you need to grieve. The time to try again is when you are ready mentally. Chorioamnionitis Happens when your water breaks early and the membranes get infected. To prevent this from happening again, your doctor will need to investigate with you and identify the reason or reasons that your water broke originally.
