Understanding Miscarriage: Trying Again Image

You've been pregnant, so you know that chances are very good it can happen again-if you want it to. The choice is up to you and your partner. If you want to try again, do so when you're ready.

A Joint Decision

You and your partner may decide to try again soon, or you may prefer to wait. To increase the chances of a healthy pregnancy, your doctor may suggest waiting 2-3 monthly cycles. This builds up the uterine lining. As a result, the fertilized egg is more likely to implant fully.

Special Tests

If you go on to have repeat miscarriages, your doctor may want to run a few tests. In certain cases, special tests can pinpoint the cause of miscarriage. Some causes, such as problems with the uterus, can often be corrected. If you have a general health problem, finding ways to control it may be all that's needed.

Prepare for the Future

After the first miscarriage, most couples go on to have a healthy pregnancy. You can give a future baby the best start by eating a balanced diet. To help prevent problems during your next pregnancy, avoid actions that may place the baby at risk. While you are pregnant, stay away from the following:

  • Smoking

  • Drinking alcohol

  • Using drugs

  • Spending time in hot tubs and saunas

When You Are Ready

Your health is what matters. Wait until you feel fit in body and mind before trying to get pregnant again. Until then, enjoy the time you spend with your partner. Allow yourselves to enjoy each other. Try not to let getting pregnant become your one goal. Instead, look at pregnancy as one possible outcome of a loving relationship.
