Ask your doctor...: That is a good question to ask your doctor. Some doctors will prescribe it after you have your first normal period. Others will wait around 3 months because there has been some evidence that getting pregnant too soon after a miscarriage can increase your risk of another miscarriage. Best wishes!

A 44-year-old member asked:

Can I get pregnant after i've had a miscarriage?

Dr. R. Wayne Inzer
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: There are a number of reasons for a miscarriage. Most, however, are a random event and a single miscarriage does not predict future problems. The fact a patient has a miscarriage at least indicates the ability to get pregnant. Repeat miscarriages should be evaluated. There may not be a solution or the solution may be easier than one thinks.

The tendency for your blood to clot too easily is called thrombophilia. There are many thrombophilias that can be identified with blood tests. Some thombophilias are associated with miscarriage. The most common thrombophilia that can cause a miscarriage and also blood clotting is antiphospholipid antibodies. It is worth knowing if that was the cause of your blood clot or not.

Depends: If your miscarriage results in complete passing of the pregnancy tissue, a D&C may not be necessary. If the tissue does not completely evacuate the uterus, your doctor may recommend a D&C to avoid future complications such as infection, excessive bleeding, or other complications.

Can the antibiotic i'm taking for a UTI prevent conception?

No: Commonly used antibiotics for UTI don't stop you from getting pregnant. In fact, some women on birth control pills get pregnant when they take antibiotics as antibiotics can affect birth control pill effectiveness.
