After a miscarriage what should I do to try for a healthy pregnancy next time? How long should I wait after a d and c?

Pregnancy: After a d+c wait for your first normal period before trying. Eat healthy, exercise, and take daily vitamins. Eliminate any drugs or alcohol if you partake. Ask friends and family and I am sure you will find multiple people in that group who have miscarried and gone on to have successful pregnancies. This should reduce your anxiety. ...Read more

I had a d and c for missed miscarriage on 4/17/14. When can my husband and i start to have intercourse? I am no longer bleeding.

2 weeks: It would be best to wait about two weeks from the d;c. You can get pregnant, even before your next period. If you want to be pregnant that quickly use something for birth control. There are no hard and feat rules on waiting on sex, but too early after a d;c could increase chances of an infection. ...Read more
