Q: How long after a miscarriage should I wait before getting pregnant?

A: There are no specific guidelines on how long after a miscarriage you should wait before getting pregnant again. One timeframe to consider is that it may take several months for ovulation to return after a miscarriage. Many doctors suggest waiting at least one to two months before you try and get pregnant again after a miscarriage. The thought behind waiting is that the uterus should get a chance to 'cleanse' itself and the lining should 'shed' after at least one menstrual bleeding.

Is there a problem if you get pregnant right away?
There are no good studies that have shown an adverse pregnancy outcome in women who get pregnant immediately in the first cycle after a miscarriage. And there is no firm proof that pregnancies have a higher risk of complications when they begin even within weeks after a miscarriage.
