My consultant advised me that I could start trying for a baby again as soon as I felt emotionally and physically ready. He said that way back a research team announced that a woman should wait 3 months before trying again. He said that almost over night GPs and specialists alike adopted this stance without really looking it to the research properly. There was research done a few years ago that disproved the theory, but still some doctors gave out the 3 month advice. I’m glad that this new study has now been released and has got the press it deserves. I don’t think that there is anything more painful than losing your baby. Wanting to try again straight away is the most natural response and I’m glad that women will no longer be advised to go through 3 months of limbo.
Women who have had a miscarriage should try to conceive again as soon as possible, new research suggests.
Conceiving within six months offers the best chance of a healthy baby
Those who get pregnant again within six months have the best chances of healthy progress with the lowest complication rates, a study from the University of Aberdeen found.
They are also far less likely to go on and have another miscarriage, the report concluded.
The research flies in the face of current advice, which suggests women wait at least three months before conceiving.
The World Health Organisation also says they should wait six months before trying for another baby.
