 Miscarriage is a very hard thing to go through. Whether it is the first time it has happened, or the tenth. Miscarriage can be hard on a woman, not only physically, but emotionally as well. Read on for some tips on getting pregnant again after miscarriage.

1. Let Your Body Heal

One of the most important parts of getting pregnant again after a miscarriage is giving your body time to heal. By trying again too soon, before your body has a chance to heal, you risk hurting yourself even more, and you risk your chances of having a healthy pregnancy the next time.


Most health care providers recommend that women wait at least a few months before trying to get pregnant again after a miscarriage. This gives the uterus and the endometrial lining a chance to heal, and to become healthy and strong again. Ask your health care provider for their recommendations on how long to wait before trying to get pregnant again.

2. Let Your Heart Heal

Something that many women overlook is giving themselves enough time to grieve and come to terms with their feelings after a miscarriage. It is only natural to experience feelings of grief and heartache after going through a pregnancy loss, no matter how far along you were. It is okay if you do not feel like trying again right away, and if you need to take some time to come to terms with your feelings.


It’s okay to feel sad, scared and nervous going forward. Even when you do get pregnant again and have another baby, it might be a bittersweet experience. That is okay. It is just important to take your emotions into consideration when you are dealing with a pregnancy loss.

3. What To Remember

It is important after you experience a pregnancy loss, you do not give up on your dreams of having a baby. More than 85 percent of women who experience a miscarriage will go on to have a healthy pregnancy the next time they get pregnant. Even for women who have had recurrent miscarriages, there are treatment options out there that can help to reduce the risk of miscarriage and make a healthy pregnancy more likely.


Your doctor can help you if you are in a situation where you might need help for recurrent miscarriages. You can also make some simple lifestyle changes and modifications to help improve your chances of having a healthy pregnancy. Just remember to take your time and think things through when you are trying to get pregnant after a miscarriage.
