When can we try again after a miscarriage?

Following a miscarriage, couples can try to conceive again based on their own terms. However, sexual intercourse is not advised until:

  • miscarriage symptoms have ceased.

This decreases the likelihood of infection and further complications.

  • you have had your first menstrual cycle after a miscarriage. This makes it easier to identify the time of conception if you do conceive, and avoid unnecessary anxiety.

However, women may ovulate before their first menstrual period post-miscarriage and fall pregnant immediately. Rest assured; therisk of miscarriage is not heightened if you conceive before your first period.

For further guidance, you should contact your GP.
