Planning for pregnancy after a miscarriage is really a most difficult decision for most of the couples.
Dealing with pain and grief of a miscarriage makes conceiving again as an impossible and sometimes a disagreeable condition for some couples, but some others want to become pregnant immediately.
However, you should wait to conceive until you become both physically and emotionally ready. Still most of you get a doubt that when can you try for another pregnancy.
Right time for planning pregnancy after miscarriage:
Frankly speaking, there is no specific amount of time you need to wait for conceiving again. But, most of the health professionals suggest you to wait for few months in order to strengthen the odds of a healthy pregnancy.
If your body is not prepared to support for a pregnancy at the time you conceive again, then you need to face a higher risk of repeated miscarriage. Some time is necessary for recovery of the uterus and strengthening of the endometrial lining.
Medically, the safe period for conception is after 2-3 menstrual cycles. Some other practitioners suggest you to wait for six months to one year before trying for another pregnancy.
Are there any chances of having miscarriage again?
Most of the couples who had undergone a miscarriage worry that it will occur again. About 85% of pregnancies who experienced one loss can have successful pregnancy for the next time and 75% of pregnancies can have successful pregnancies that experienced two or three losses.
You should consult your practitioner before you conceive again. This is essential if you have experienced 2-3 losses, have fertility problems, have problems that affect your pregnancy like diabetes and are above the age of 30.
Deciding when to attempt again:
The decision of attempting again is dependent on you couple. Becoming pregnant again never substitute the lost pregnancy, but it will help you in refocusing your attention. If the previous miscarriage is due to any complications, then you should discuss with your practitioner regarding the plans of conceiving again.
Don’t blame yourself for the loss. Often women feel that they are responsible for the miscarriage. The most common cause of miscarriage appears to be a chromosomal abnormality in your developing embryo. It is highly unlikely that anything you did contributed to the loss.
