Depends: If your kidney function is totally normal (tests can be done to check this) and you have no blood pressure issues at all, then the chance of getting preeclampsia should be about the same as that of the general population, which is approximately 15%.

Aspirin!: I am very sorry for your losses. Aspirin 80-81 mg daily would be my recommendation unless you are allergic or have gastritis or peptic ulcer disease. Take it before getting pregnant for maximal prophylaxis benefit: can be 15-75% decrease in risk of recurrent preeclampsia. Take calcium as well if you are lactose intolerant otherwise dairy product consumption suffices. Do not change sexual partners. ...Read more

You should see: Your obgyn and have some testing done before and see a perinatologist as soonas u get pregnant as u will need close following as u would be more at risk to get it again esp if it was severe enough to cause a still birth and u need to make sure u do not have any chronic hypertension now. ...Read more

It is clear that the cure for pre-eclampsia is delivery - so something about the pregnancy is clearly involved. To further complicate the picture, about 25% of pre-eclampsia cases arise after delivery. ...Read more
