Exercise is free and effects are long-lasting! ...Read more
I just had a stillbirth delivery at 38 weeks, first pregnancy, no know cause. How long should I wait to get pregnant again?
Give it some time: Speak to your obstetrician and make sure that all aspects have been evaluated for the stillbirth. If there was a compromise in the umbilical cord that may potentially give an answer. Also, chromosomal evaluation may be helpful along with familial thrombophilia clotting studies. Allow yourself and your partner to grieve the death of the child before jumping into the next pregnancy. Make sure that all potential causes have been evaluated before attempting another pregnancy. I personally would have my patient waited at least 4 to 6 months before trying again. ...Read more
