I Have Had a Miscarriage -- What Happens Next?

Trying Again

Each couple will have their own amount of grieving time. Once you have grieved your loss, you may be ready to try to get pregnant again. Physically, you can ovulate and become pregnant two weeks after an early miscarriage. If you are not ready to become pregnant again, talk to your healthcare provider about birth control options.
In general, it is recommended to wait at least one or two normal menstrual cycles before trying to conceive again. This is mainly to allow you time to recover emotionally from your pregnancy loss. If you do become pregnant before this time, rest assured that it does not put you at an increased risk for another miscarriage.
Give yourself and your partner time to heal from your miscarriage and discuss when you are ready to try again. Although this is a traumatic event, try to remember that many women who have miscarriages go on to have healthy babies.
