Having a miscarriage is a very “tricky” situation, at least for couples who are eager and anxious to have a child or another child. Besides the stress on the body, the entire experience is (can be) stressful.

Most couples need time to heal emotionally and (most women) physically as well. According to experts emotional healing depends not only on the couple, but also on each individual in the relationship. Some may grieve, celebrate the life (that almost was) and get (immediately) anxious to try again. Others however may remain a bit more gun shy and require more time to recuperate. And, in fact, experts assert that when it comes to emotional healing there are no “right” and “wrong” answers and no specific time frame.

Physical healing on the other hand tends to be a bit more “scientific” in nature. According to many doctors, couples can begin trying (again) after one (menstrual) cycle.

Experts assert that usually, after an uncomplicated miscarriage, most women who were (fairly) regular (prior to conception) should expect to have their period within four to six weeks after the completion of the miscarriage.

However, they add, that it does depend on the individual, and how far along in the pregnancy she was, as well as, where you had any instrumentation, such as a curretage, or if there were any retained products. If the miscarriage was spontaneous and without prolonged bleeding, a safe guestimate suggests ovulation within two to four weeks after the miscarriage.
