I had a miscarriage 2 months ago. How soon can I start trying to become pregnant again?
Do I have to take any special precautions to make sure I don’t miscarry again? – Nicole
Some doctors recommend that women wait 2 to 3 months or more before trying to get
pregnant again to give their bodies time to heal, and so that they are emotionally
ready to be pregnant again. Continue to take preconception precautions, like taking
folic acid; abstaining
from drinking, smoking, or using drugs; and avoiding other substances that might harm
If you miscarry more than once, you may want to talk with your doctor about medical
conditions or other factors that could be putting you at risk for miscarriage.
If you become pregnant again, be sure to maintain a healthy, nutrient-rich diet
and limit or avoid caffeine. Also avoid foods that can cause illnesses, such as soft
unpasteurized cheeses or undercooked meats.
