1. After The Storm 

Miscarriage, or any form of pregnancy loss, is a hard thing for a woman to endure. Many women, in addition to feeling many different emotions over the loss of their pregnancy, have worries about getting pregnant in the future, and how long it will take. It’s important to keep in mind, first of all, that having a miscarriage does not mean that a woman will not be able to get pregnant in the future.

having-a-miscarriage-does-not-mean-that-a-woman-will-not-be-able-to-get-pregnant-in-the-futureRemember that 85 percent of women who experience one pregnancy loss will go on to have a healthy pregnancy in the future, and 75 percent of women who experience two or more pregnancy losses will go on to have a healthy pregnancy in the future, so just because a woman has a miscarriage, does not mean that she will be unable to have a child in the future.

2. Getting Pregnant Again

Women should be aware that there is a short time frame after a miscarriage when a woman might actually be more fertile than usual, making it easier for her to get pregnant again.

However, this period only lasts for around four to six weeks, when her menstrual periods and ovulation cycles return to normal and her normal level of fertility will return. Women should know that the body does return to normal fairly quickly after a miscarriage, and in most cases, will be completely healed in just a few weeks.

Some women are able to get pregnant right away after suffering a miscarriage, but for some women, the recovery period will be a bit longer. Most women who wish to get pregnant again after a miscarriage do so easily within six months.

3. What To Remember

There are several important things to remember when it comes to getting pregnant after a miscarriage. First of all, it is important to remember that although the physical scars of miscarriage heal fairly quickly, the emotional scars can be around for much longer.

Women should not rush to get pregnant again right away until they feel that they are emotionally ready. It is important for both partners to agree that it is time to move forward with another pregnancy as well.

Whatever a couple decides to do post miscarriage, it is important for them to take their time and move slowly as they begin to navigate what can sometimes be a slippery slope.
