When can I get pregnant again after a miscarriage?
After your bleeding settles (which typically takes about 1-2 weeks), your next period will usually come in 4-6 weeks’ time. The earliest time to try for your next pregnancy is after 1 normal period (do use birth control if you are not planning to get pregnant so soon).
A miscarriage affects every woman and her partner differently, so do ensure that you allow yourself time to grieve and get support from your family and friends. You may return to work after your medical leave. You can resume sex and/or try for your next baby as soon as you and your partner feel ready.
Please contact your doctor if you:
- Have heavy/prolonged vaginal bleeding requiring hourly pad changes
- Have fever of 38 degrees and above
- Have increasing abdominal pains despite taking Panadol
- Have smelly vaginal discharge
- Are feeling unwell
