How long did you wait to get pregnant again after a miscarriage?

I found out I was pregnant on August 5th, and they told me I was a high risk of miscarriage or preterm birth if I made it further into my pregnancy since it had only been 11 months since I had my daughter. I had a miscarriage on August 28th. Everything I’ve read online says that you should space your pregnancies 12 to 18 months apart. I don’t wanna replace the baby I miscarried, but my husband and I just really feel like we wanna have another baby. I’ve read online that they recommend 6 months from the time you miscarry before trying to get pregnant again but that there have also been studies that say if you get pregnant within the first few months after a miscarriage that you’re more likely to have a successful pregnancy because your body is “primed” to accept a future pregnancy. I’m struggling with should I wait or should I not because it still hasn’t been 18 months since I had my daughter, but I also know so many ppl who didn’t wait that long between pregnancies and he successful pregnancies so I’m not really sure what to do but I definitely don’t wanna wait longer than I need to! Advice?

Dont try but dont prevent it either. Just let your bodies do what they need to and a pregnancy will happen when its supposed to :pray::green_heart:

Everyone is different. Every family, every life, every pregnancy. Follow what you feel is right for your family.

I miscarried January third and got pregnant again at the beginning of March

I had a miscarriage and I’m pregnant again. You should defiantly let your body have a few cycles, before you try to have another baby. But hey, I’m no doctor.

I got pregnant 1 month after I had my daughter and I was 39 both are fine and so am I.

My OB advised we do bloodwork until my hcg levels returned to normal and then we try again. Took 3 months for my hormones to level back out and got the all clear to try! I know someone who miscarried and got pregnant within a month and carried to term

I miscarried on Valentine’s Day of this year & fell pregnant that next month, I only had sex once & caught instantly I wasn’t trying it just happened

I got pg with my oldest 2mo after my miscarriage.

I was told 2 cycles but I got pregnant the very next cycle.

It is different for every body and every pregnancy. Best to consult with your ob/midwife and physician if you are having concerns or are unsure of what to do. They can give you the best medical advice for what’s healthy. Ultimately, it’s your decision on what to do.

Got pregnant 2 ½ months after my miscarriage last year and had my son in April. Hes almost 5 months now.

Had 2 sons (youngest was 2) found out I was pregnant in July and a few days later I miscarried. Waited until my next “normal” cycle and got pregnant again in September but miscarried as well within a week of finding out. Went to Drs to find out what was happening and we did tests but no answers as to why I miscarried. Got pregnant in December and had a healthy baby girl the following October. Ending up having 3 successful pregnancies after those two miscarriages

My friend had a miscarriage and got pregnant a few weeks later. She is now 17 weeks and her pregnancy is thriving.

Hello everyone… I was married for 4 years,after these years things started
getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time. it got
worse at a point that he filed for divorce. I tried my best to make him
change his mind & stay with me. But he moved out of the house and still
went ahead to file for the divorce. I pleaded and tried everything but
still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when a friend introduced me to
this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out. I have
never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly
cause I was desperate and left with no choice. He did special prayers and
used roots and herbs. Within 24 hours he called me and was sorry for all the
emotional trauma he had cost me, he moved back to the house and we continue
to live happily. what a wonderful miracle Dr Agbaka did for me and my
family. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the
world and they have had good news. I strongly believe someone out there
need’s his help. WhatsApp him +2349039343473 or email via [email protected] com so make extra effort to save your
marriage/relationship,you can also contact him if you have any problems…

  1. want your ex back.
  2. You always have nightmares.
  3. To be promoted in your office
  4. Do you want a child.
  5. You want to be rich.
  6. Do you want to be in control of that marriage
  7. Do you want to be attracted to people

The first thing you should do, is consult your OBGYN. I know there are plenty of ladies in here that can share their experience (I’m not one, all of my kids are 5 years apart, because, well, just when I thought I was done, SURPRISE) but your body/health is different from anyone else’s. What worked for someone else, may not work for you. But ultimately, it’s your and your husbands decision together. Look at how many people have (I believe it’s called) Irish Twins. Baby’s literally born in the same year, 9 months apart. Your body knows what it can and can’t handle, but at the same time, you want to give your body time to heal. Delivering a baby, no matter how you do it, takes a toll on your body. My suggestion would be to schedule a well woman and have the OBGYN check you over, then make a decision.

I got pregnant immediately after miscarriage 3 times and had healthy rainbow babies each time.

I miscarried just after the 3 month mark, after being told chances of getting pregnant were 1 in a million and chances of carrying were even more slim. 5 months later I was pregnant with my rainbow baby, carried her to term-2 weeks(high risk pregnancy), stopped nursing her at 18 months and got pregnant with baby #2(high risk pregnancy carried full term). They are now going on 15 and 13. When your body is ready it is ready is what i was told…

2 months would have been sooner but hubby was gone for those 2 months…

Need to talk to your GYN… they can answer your questions better than anyone. Also my GYN said it’s best for your body to wait 18 months between pregnancy but that’s not realistic for some people. Also when I had a miscarriage they said it all depends on how far along you was.

3 months I got pregnant after I miscarried. Now I’m almost 30wks. My OB said it was fine though.

I got pregnant with my Second child about 3 weeks after miscarrying…at a Funeral no less…she is now turning 5 on the 22nd of September

Miscarried thanksgiving of last year and conceived sometime in February so threeish months for us. My Obgyn said after I had a normal cycle it was ok to try again so we did.

I just had the same thing happen. But we are just gunna try again after all the bleeding stops. And if it happens for us again it happens. But we’ve tried two years for this one and it took 3 years to get pregnant with my first.

I was told to have a normal period first Basically waiting a month

I got pregnant after 10 weeks of having my second child and my pregnancy was fine only issue was she had placenta restriction… so she was really small at birth 4 pounds 8 oz 37.5 weeks along… they monitored her threw out my pregnancy and she was health with no issues at birth… good luck mama

I miscarried on 12/18 and got pregnant on 12/25. My perfect boy is 5 now :blush:

My first pregnancy ended in a missed miscarriage at 13 weeks. I was heartbroken so gave up trying as such but never used protection. I fell pregnant again 6 months later with a very healthy, now 5 year old. 9 months after, I fell pregnant again, with my now 4 year old. Dont put so much pressure on yourselves and it will happen. Good luck xx

I miscarried mid July. Found out I was pregnant again beginning of September. Sadie was born in May

i miscarried in jan of 2019 and conceived my now 10 month old son in march of 2019.

I miscarried in Aug 2019 and became pregnant again in Feb 2020, 6 months apart, it just happened that way we didn’t wait for a specific amount of time, when I miscarried my OB said I can try again as soon as I’m ready after my first period. Baby is perfectly healthy now and she’ll be arriving in Nov :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

My doctor told me to wait about 3 months I think it was after mine. My thoughts on the waiting time recommended by the docs is to let your body heal, and your period returns to a normal cycle.

I waited a year for my body to heal properly lost my baby girl in 2012 had another baby girl 2013

I got pregnant within three months after my miscarriage

I miscarried and got pregnant 3 months later. I have a healthy 2 year old daughter now.

My fertility doctor said to wait 1 cycle before trying again. I had a miscarriage January 2019, another July 2019 and then got pregnant with my daughter the beginning of October 2019 and had her in June. Good luck! :sparkling_heart:

Not a replacement. Don’t feel like that I know it’s hard. My doctor told me having a miscarriage after one doesn’t increase the chance she didn’t give a timeline and that was 9 months after having my son. If y’all want more keep trying :heart:

I had my daughter in Oct 2015, miscarried twice when we started trying in 2018. Had my 2nd July 2019, & got pregnant again when she was 4 months and this has been the most easy pregnancy out of all of them. So I personally think it just depends in each individual pregnancy and person and you should try when your ready mentally.

Just breathe and let your body do its thing. I had 5 miscarriages last one was about 2 months before i fell pregnant with twins! Doctors scared me so much but my pregnancy was great (minus the morning sickness) my twins are now 7months!

I had a miscarriage and was told not to try again the month following so we waited and tried the month after that and got pregnant again right away. My rainbow baby is now a happy healthy 3 year old :heart::rainbow:

I have had four this year. Which is so much to deal with. There right after the other and one last month. But I’m assuming that’s only Bc I needed a d&c with the miscarriage in June. So I was pregnant January, February, May, and August. All differing times of loss. The d&c was 12 weeks. It’s really just a matter of choice whether you want to risk trying again so soon honestly. That’s what my doctor told me.

I got pregnant on my next cycle!

I was never told I was high risk for miscarriage and I got pregnant 6 months after having my first. I feel like they shouldn’t have told you that. If you feel ready emotionally, mentally and physically, go for it.


I just had a baby and my girls are 11 months apart. I had her at 39 weeks no complications. She was a surprise baby number 2. My OB would like to see 18 months between babies. I have heard women get pregnancy after a miscarriage immediately! I would seek another OB that meets you and your husbands wants and needs , and be able to respectfully tell you medical advice with the risks ! But not scare you because no one said this to me at all.


I started trying again a few weeks later once I felt comfortable but I didn’t get pregnant until maybe 6 months later.

I had a miscarriage beginning of December 2015 and fell pregnant in January 2016 and had my girl in September. Didn’t take long at all

I had a miscarriage a few months ago. My doctor said i needed two full periods before i could start trying again for a baby :heart: hope this helps

I was pregnant about 6 weeks after. My doctor said they USED to recommend waiting but that is outdated info. He said once you’ve had your first period you can try again. He said if you are mentally ready then go ahead. There has actually been some research that said that doing it again with 6 months of a loss is supposed to be easier to get pregnant. I think it also has to do with how your body processed the miscarriage and how far along you were. Mine was a first trimester loss but I’m assuming if it was much farther along then you’d need more time for your body to recover.

I wound up pregnant 4 months after my miscarriage

I was pregnant within three months.

Our first pregnancy was ectopic and we conceived our rainbow baby 2 weeks after that loss. For us, we couldn’t let that egg go after losing another baby. Thank God, because that egg became our 6 year old son and he’s a miracle! Studies actually show that you’re more fertile after a miscarriage and more likely to have a healthy successful pregnancy the sooner you conceive after a loss. We’ve had multiple miscarriages and have always tried again as soon as possible.

My doctor told me to wait 3 menstrual cycles. I think there will be different answers from different docs. I had to have two D&Cs due to miscarriages. I think that may be another reason he suggested to wait 3 cycles, to be able to heal.

I miscarried with my first in June 2014. I conceived my daughter that September and had a smooth pregnancy. My doctor had told me after my loss to wait 3 cycles before trying again and has always advised to wait at least 12 months between pregnancy’s though she would prefer 18-24 to assure the body has truly healed.

Miscarried at 11 weeks in March, was pregnant again in July— carried full term. My son is now 5mo and healthy as can be. I think everyone’s bodies react differently

I say stop stressing out about a timeline given to you by averages on the internet.

EVERY woman is different.

Talk to your doctor, trust that everything will go well, and you do you!!

You need to give your body time to heal…wait at least a year

I think it depends how far along u were, u want ur lvls to go back to normal first i would think. There are some great TTC pages and groups on facebook that might have more of the support u are looking for as alot of them have experience with multiple misscarrages at different stages they would know the best times to try again. :heart:iv got a friend who had her second 11 minths after her first so she would of fallen pregnant only about 6 weeks after her first.

I think you just need to give yourself time to heal. Medically the statistics are pretty broad and opinions vary. So just do whats best for you. :sparkling_heart:
We lost a little one at 10weeks on April 20th 2018 and didn’t try again until November 2018. Then we got pregnant and had out now 1 year old little boy. :heartpulse:
Take your time and vest of luck xx

I had a miscarriage then one period before becoming pregnant with my now healthy one year old daughter then before she was 6 months I found myself pregnant again I’m now 36 weeks today with a healthy pregnancy so far by the way I’m 39 years old so I guess everyone’s different but good luck to another healthy baby

I have had 2 miscarriages (d&c after both) this year and my OB said to wait 3 periods before trying again after each miscarriage. Our bodies need to heal and the lining of the uterus needs to build again.

(Side noted: I am high risk as I have had multiple miscarriages and I am also considered “vast maternal age” which puts me in a separate high risk class of its own.)


Wow. My kids are 13.5 months apart, so obviously we didn’t wait a year. I was never told that I would be at a risk of miscarriage having them that close together. That’s unfortunate that it happened for you. I think that you should talk to your doctor about whether or not it’s ok to try again soon, or wait until later. I wouldn’t rely on the internet for my info.

I miscarried December 15, 2019. I was heartbroken. I also did my research. Began taking folate and in March 2020 I got pregnant again. I’ll be 28 weeks tomorrow. And so far I’ve had no issues whatsoever. The baby is healthy. I’m also 35 and high risk.

To each their own you can wait years and still miscarry. I had a friend miss carry and was pregnant in 2 months worked out find. I have another waited a year and lost two more. She did finally get her boy. Best of luck sorry about your loss I would have an almost 20 year old. Forever in my heart hugs

Mine naturally happened after IVF with my first when she was 13 months old when I had successfully weaned her. I had a great pregnancy. I can’t relay that to miscarriage and I’m so sorry for your loss. Just thought I’d add my experience with a pregnancy after 13 months PP.

I miscarried my first one, and I got pregnant again about 8 months later. Things happen for reasons even though we don’t understand those reasons. It took me years to realize that I wasn’t the cause of that miscarriage but if I hadn’t of, I would not have my rainbow baby.

Let go and let God. Don’t worry what others do and say. Just love and support each other.

I’m sorry for your miscarriage :disappointed: miscarriages are awful.
