If you had a threatened miscarriage (spontaneous abortion) how long to wait before having sex again?

If you had a threatened miscarriage (spontaneous abortion) how long to wait before having sex again?

Clarification?: Are you still pregnant or have you had a miscarriage? Older recommendations to wait for 3-6 months after a miscarriage before attempting another conception have only been shown to increase infertility risk without preventing any complications. Nowadays, it is recommended that you may resume sexual activity as soon as you feel like it. If you are sill pregnant, ask your obstetrician if sex is safe. ...Read more

I'm 35 had a miscarriage in June at 10wks -2 kids living (teens)2 abortions in 99&2000. I'm pregnant again (3 weeks) what chance of miscarrying again?

Maybe 30-40%: Overall, I give over 30 year old pts about a 30% chance of miscarriage( as a round number, AND better to overestimate). Remember, miscarriage is natures own process of clearing not nl pregnancies... so it is a natural thing. Not fun, I grant you. But, although your previous miscarriage ups the chances a little, you still have a majority chance of a successful pregnancy.. Good luck! ...Read more

Had miscarriage at 7wks then unprotected sex 8-9days later, what's the chance of conception? Is it safe this early after miscarriage? I'm 26

Had miscarriage at 7wks then unprotected sex 8-9days later, what's the chance of conception? Is it safe this early after miscarriage? I'm 26

Low: The chance that you would ovulate 8 days after completing a miscarriage is not zero, but it is low. If you're concerned you can take a pregnancy test to see if you're pregnant. There are no studies to show that getting pregnant again after a miscarriage has any bad effects on that subsequent pregnancy. Some women, however, like to have at least once cycle before they try again. Best of luck! ...Read more

How long should I wait before trying to fall pregnant after premature birth? Baby was born @ 28 weeks and died 9 days later

How long should I wait before trying to fall pregnant after premature birth? Baby was born @ 28 weeks and died 9 days later

6 weeks.: Please accept my condolences for your loss. Any pregnancy that reaches the third trimester should be followed by a 6 week postpartum period of no intercourse and rest to allow for the reproductive organs to recover and involute. After that, whenever you feel emotionally ready to try for another conception is fine. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily, see your ob/gyn regularly and best of luck! ...Read more

How long for u wait after a miscarriage to get pregnant again? What's the chance of getting pregnant again after miscarriage? Miscarried 2day 06/18.

Wait for next period: Usually it's a good idea to wait until you've had a normal period. Part of the reason is that your next period after a miscarriage is often late, and waiting reduces the frustration of wondering if you're pregnant again. It also gives your body a chance to get completely back to normal before getting pregnant again. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with blighted ovum, @7 weeks, 2days. After d & c, how many cycles should we wait again before trying?Affects future pregnancies?

Wait 1 normal period: Sorry to hear of your loss. After a D&C your pregnancy hormone (HCG) will fall down to zero in a few weeks, with some bleeding at that time. Wait 1 more cycle after this before trying again - after your next 'normal period'. There may be a higher chance of another miscarriage in the 1st month, so use condoms. 1 miscarriage is common, if you have 2 or more see a rei specialist to get checked out. ...Read more
