Sex post miscarriage: Has the bleeding stopped? You should wait till you have stopped bleeding completely and have had 1 normal period or 4-6 weeks post miscarriage., as the cervix is dilated after a miscarriage and there is greater risk for infection. it is best ot have had a post miscarriage doctor visit. http://www.issm.info/sexual-health-qa/how-soon-can-couples-have-sex-again-after-a-miscarriage/ or
