Healing physically

It is very important to give your body enough time to heal physically from a miscarriage before trying again to get pregnant. The uterine lining has to have time to heal and become strong again. The uterus also has to have enough time to recover. Most doctors recommend waiting at least two to three months after having a miscarriage before trying to become pregnant again. Of course, every woman is different, and some women might need even more time before feeling ready to try again.

Healing emotionally

While taking time for your body to heal is important, perhaps even more important is taking the time for your mind and feelings to heal. Healing emotionally is very important, and there is no set time table to know when you are going to be emotionally ready to try again. It can sometimes take a very long time to emotionally heal from a miscarriage. Miscarriage can cause a lot of negative feelings such as guilt, depression, grief, and more. Women may feel withdrawn and lonely. It is very important to develop a strong support system to help deal with these feelings. Again, there is no set time to determine when a woman will be emotionally ready to try to conceive again. Some women might feel ready right away, and others might take an extremely long time to feel ready again.

How to prepare

There are a few things that you can do to help prepare you on how to get pregnant again. Eating healthy foods and exercising regularly can help get your body and mind both in better shape, and help prepare you to try again. Also try to cut back on caffeine and avoid alcohol. Try to get your mind and body both in the best shape possible before trying again to get pregnant. This will give you the best chance possible that your next pregnancy will be successful.
