How to recover after miscarriage (7 weeks 3 days)? Any special food for quick recovery?

Don't rush it: Recovery after a miscarriage is not just physical; there is an emotional loss also. The woman needs care and time to grieve. In general she needs a healthy diet, with proteins, veggies, and fruits -- and lots of love and support. Depending on her state, professional counseling may be needed also. By the way -- heavy smoking or exposure to 2nd hand smoke is not healthy for either of you. Be well. ...Read more

Recovering from anemia after miscarriage. I have been getting painful headaches everyday in the back of my head and neck. Is this normal? How long?

Recovering from anemia after miscarriage. I have been getting painful headaches everyday in the back of my head and neck. Is this normal? How long?

See below: Headaches are not normal. The cause is not easy to determine without additional history and physical examination. These may be due to tension and one way of getting around tension is by exercise. You may wish to start exercising, first thing in the morning. Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

How quick can you pregnant again after your miscarriage that has been two weeks ago and still waiting for your period to recover from the m/c?

How quick can you pregnant again after your    miscarriage that has been two weeks ago and still waiting for your period to recover from the m/c?

It all depends: There is no one size answer for all women to this important question. I think given that your miscarriage was some time back and you now have a positive pregnancy test after a negative test it is likely you are pregnant. But, remember tests can be mistakes. I would test again or go see the OB to have a blood test to put all doubt to rest. ...Read more

Tb recovered 10yrs ago.Last year miscarriage at 13th wk. Need treatment for qtf-gold positive now? Relationships between them? Safe to pregnant again?

TB: Not sure if last year's miscarriage related to TB or not, but most likely not since TB is not a common cause of miscarriage, anyway. If you have positive quantiferon test, you may need treatment, but i would avoid pregnancy at all costs during the treatment, because the drugs are quite toxic. ...Read more
