You had an early miscarriage! TTC tips for your next

At InfertilityTV, we get lots of questions from you the viewers. A common question we get is, what to do after an early miscarriage. The first thing we recommend? DON’T PANIC!! For what to do next stay tuned.

It turns out that early miscarriages are extremely common. The majority of women will have at least one early miscarriage at some point during their lives. In fact, many women have had an early miscarriage and didn’t even know it. Sometimes, that period that you had which was a week late was really an early miscarriage. Often, you may have had a positive pregnancy test at home or in the doctor’s office and then start bleeding a day or two later. This is also an early miscarriage.

The first thing to do is to make sure that the pregnancy has passed completely. This is especially important if you were able to see the pregnancy on ultrasound. One way to do this is to have your doctor get blood tests to follow your hCG levels until they are negative.

Once you are sure you have completed the miscarriage, wait for your period to come and then start trying to get pregnant right away. This is important. In the past, doctors used to tell patients to wait for several months to try to get pregnant again. Now, however, we have very good evidence that your chances for getting pregnant again and your chances for having a live birth are BETTER if you don’t wait.

Women who have had one early miscarriage are NOT at greater risk for a second early miscarriage compared to women who have never had an early miscarriage at all. So don’t assume that just because you miscarried once that it will happen again.

Monitoring in your doctor’s office can help reassure you that your next pregnancy is doing well. As soon as you think you might be pregnant, contact your OB or fertility specialist. Blood tests every few days and then ultrasounds can help determine whether you might be at risk for another early miscarraige.
