After menstruation: Fertility returns quickly after a miscarriage. Ovulation may happen with the next normal menstrual cycle. However you may not want to try to conceive for 4-6 weeks after a miscarriage. Talk to your gynecologist and see what their recommendations are in your situation.

How fertile are you right after a miscarriage?

How fertile are you right after a miscarriage?

Very!: In fact most studies now recommend not waiting to get pregnant after a miscarriage, because women that wait have a harder time to get pregnant again compared to those who do not wait to resume intercourse.

How long do you stay fertile after a miscarriage?

How long do you stay fertile after a miscarriage?

Variable: A miscarriage already proves your fertility. It is most likely due to a genetically abnormal pregnancy. There is no way to predict when you will ovulate again, but you should use protection for at least two cycles before trying to conceive again. This lets the uterine lining build up again and prepare for another conception.

Me and my partner are trying for a baby its been 6 months and we are both fertile because i had a miscarriage. Is it normal to take this long?

Me and my partner are trying for a baby its been 6 months and we are both fertile because i had a miscarriage. Is it normal to take this long?

Could be: It is possible that this is normal. We don't normally begin to worry or evaluate for causes of infertility until you have been trying for 6 months. This timeframe does not change after you have had a pregnancy or miscarriage. Each time frame to conception is totally different and is like rolling dice until your number comes up. Could be several tries or only one or two. Best of luck...

Could two miscarriages and one abortion affect my fertility?

Could two miscarriages and one abortion affect my fertility?

The treatment: Not so much miscarriages and abortions by themselves can affect fertility, but they way they were treated. Specifically, when the womb was emptied surgically (D&C, dilatation and curettage), subsequent infection and scarring can interfere with future fertility.

Specialist: First you need a fertility specialist. There are some special tests you need. The uterus may be abnormal. Or the eggs may be abnormal. It may be very difficult to have a child and only a specialist would be able to figure things out and give you a chance to have a live birth.

I had 2 miscarriages. One was a missed miscarriage, and other ended on its own at 4 weeks. Could this be a fertility issue or just a fluke occurence?

Both: It might be just look occurrence, but at the same time you should be checked for disorders that cause miscarriages. Lupus, diabetes, thyroid disorder, clotting disorders, vitamin deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, etc. Could all be the issue. You should have your ob/gyn doctor initiate a proper workup.If you smoke cigarettes, please stop!

I had miscarriage in marchand since then, my cycle has been 40-45 days long. What are the fertility perc for cycles that long? Appt sched, just advice

Depends: If you are still ovulating but just have a prolonged cycle the average rate of pregnancy per cycle is about 20% however if you are having irregular or lengthening cycles due to anovulation (not ovulating) then your chances would be much lower. There are a few simple blood tests that can be done to evaluate you, also an ovarian cyst can occasionally cause delayed cycles.

Can liver problems affect fertility and cause miscarriage?

Can liver problems affect fertility and cause miscarriage?

Yes: The liver is necessary for metabolism of hormones and if the disease is severe enough it does cause problems with pregnancy and fertility. Mild disease is less of a problem. Active hepatitis also can infect the fetus and cause problems. Hope this helps.

After giving birth you are more fertile. Is the same true after a miscarriage?

After giving birth you are more fertile. Is the same true after a miscarriage?

Use condoms 1 month: Fertility is usually low for 6 weeks after giving birth. It's best to wait a month before trying to conceive again; there may be a higher chance of another miscarriage if you get pregnant again in the first month after a miscarriage. See a reproductive endocrinology and infertility (rei) specialist after two or more miscarriages, or after one loss if it took a year or more to conceive. Best wishes.

Maybe: Early pregnancy losses are not uncommon. Pelvic infections can cause scarring in the tubes that increases the risk of infertility or tubal pregnancy but i don't think gonorrhea increases the risk of a miscarriage in a normally implanted pregnancy.

Is it normal to have a lot of white/clear discharge after a miscarriage?Ive had it for over 2 weeks.I thought i was fertile but i'm not sure about it.

Is it normal to have a lot of white/clear discharge after a miscarriage?Ive had it for over 2 weeks.I thought i was fertile but i'm not sure about it.

It depends: Vaginal discharge will change throughout the menstrual cycle and can be a normal sign of the hormonal changes of pregnancy. On the other hand, vaginal odor can be a sign of bacterial vaginosis. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. It is a good idea to get checked out.

I had a miscarriage last year I used an app to find out the ovulation and stuff but there was no ovulation or high fertility on or near the day gt prg?

No perfect app: Apps for fertility aren't perfect and they can be confused by irregular cycles and anovulatory months. They are helpful for women trying to get pregnant but risky for women wanting to use them to avoid pregnancy. Its hard to say what happened in your specific case. Best wishes!

Can being raped or having a miscarriage because of stress effect fertility?

Can being raped or having a miscarriage because of stress effect fertility?

Stress & fertility: Let me start by saying sorry for the pain you have endured. And yes, stress does create an environment for infertility. Here is how: after prolonged stress the adrenal glands begin to weaken, and their ability to make life saving hormones such as cortisol steadily diminish. In an effort to save your life, the adrenal will.

I was pregnant for 10 weeks and then had a miscarriage. Does that proves my fertility as I was once pregnant or its not an indication of fertility?

I was pregnant for 10 weeks and then had a miscarriage. Does that proves my fertility as I was once pregnant or its not an indication of fertility?

Miscarriage 10 weeks: The fact that you wete able to become pregnant is good news. Miscarriages are more common in your 30's. You can try again within a few cycles but see your doctor early on at 6 weeks to confirm viability.
