1. Pregnancy After Miscarriage

Miscarriage is a very traumatic and difficult thing to go through. Whether it is your first pregnancy loss or whether you have experienced many, it does not make it any easier.


Eventually, after a miscarriage, many couples find that they are ready to try again to get pregnant. However, many couples also wonder about getting pregnant after miscarriage and whether or not it will be difficult to do so. Read on for what you need to know.

2. Odds Of Another Loss

One of the big things on the mind of a woman who has experienced a miscarriage is whether or not it will happen again. Luckily, miscarriage when it happens in most women is just a one time occurrence.


Less than five percent of all women will have two consecutive miscarriages and less than one percent of women will go on to have three or more consecutive miscarriages. When it comes to pregnancy loss, the odds are in your favor. Most women who experience a pregnancy loss will go on to have a healthy pregnancy.

3. What Went Wrong?

Another thing that many women who have suffered a miscarriage think about is what went wrong, and if it will go wrong again. It is important to understand that between 10 and 20 percent of all pregnancies end in miscarriage.


The number may even be higher when you take into consideration the women who suffer a miscarriage and do not even know they are pregnant yet. Sometimes chromosomal issues or gene problems can cause a miscarriage. Often times, the baby is simply not developing properly.

Miscarriage can occur for many reasons, and often times, those reasons are not known. The important thing to remember is that there is nothing a mother could do to prevent a miscarriage, and it is never a woman’s fault.

4. Be Sure You Are Ready

Another important thing to think about when it comes to getting pregnant after miscarriage is to make sure that you are fully ready. The physical recovery from miscarriage is quick.


It only takes a few days. It will only be a few weeks before a woman’s menstrual cycle and ovulation cycle return to normal. However, the emotional scars of miscarriage can hang around long after the physical scars have healed.

Miscarriage can cause intense feelings of loss, and that is totally normal. Make sure to talk to a counselor or therapist if you are having trouble dealing with your grief after your pregnancy loss. This is the only way to be truly ready to conceive again.

5. Helpful Tips

While there is, of course, no way to prevent a miscarriage from occurring, there are a few things that women can do to improve their chances of having a healthy pregnancy. Obviously, drugs, tobacco and alcohol should all be avoided when trying to conceive since all of these can lead to miscarriage.


Make sure to ask your doctor about any medications you may be taking. Take a daily prenatal vitamin to help your body get ready to be pregnant again. Try to remove as much stress from your life as possible. Try not to be worried, and know that pregnancy after miscarriage is not usually difficult.
