Trying again after second miscarriage

After the trauma of a miscarriage many women take a break to recover before they begin to try again for a baby.
One in five pregnancies ends in miscarriage - around a quarter of a million in the UK each year - mostly before 12 weeks.
A single miscarriage does not indicate future fertility problems or that a woman will not be able to conceive again. If you have experienced a miscarriage, it is very important to talk to your doctor about when the right time is to try again.
Keep in mind, however, that although the physical effects of miscarriage are quick to heal, the emotional damage can be long lasting. Once you are ready to try to get pregnant again, there are a few things that you should keep in mind.
Women aged 40 have a 30 per cent chance of miscarriage, which rises to 50 per cent in those aged 45 or more, according to the study.The researchers said WHO guidance may not be appropriate to Western countries, where many women delay childrearing until after 35 and women should not be discouraged from trying again. It doesn’t matter if a woman has had many miscarriages, or if she is experiencing her first pregnancy loss.

Otherwise healthy women who have had miscarriages have an 85 percent chance of carrying the next pregnancy normally. The physical recovery from miscarriage is usually very short, and most women find that their bodies are back to normal within a few days or weeks. Both you and your partner might experience extreme feelings of loss, anger, guilt, fear and depression after a pregnancy loss. Women who conceive within six months of a miscarriage have the best chance of a healthy pregnancy with the lowest likelihood of another miscarriage, according to the British study. Ruth Bender Atik, director of the Miscarriage Association, said: 'It's a really interesting study. Less than 5 percent of women have two consecutive miscarriages, and only 1 percent have three or more consecutive miscarriages.
Most women will find that their periods return to normal somewhere between 4 to 6 weeks after a miscarriage.
Official NHS advice is that women should wait at least three months before trying again for a baby, while the World Health Organisation recommends a six month gap.

Of the women in the study, 41 per cent conceived within six months of a first miscarriage, 25 per cent after six to 12 months and 10 per cent after 12 to 18 months. Once you are ready to try again, start taking a prenatal vitamin and folic acid supplement so that you can boost your fertility and get your body in the best possible condition to get pregnant.
All of these things will help to increase your chances of getting pregnant easily and avoiding another miscarriage.
The team from Aberdeen University analysed data for almost 31,000 women who had suffered a miscarriage and fallen pregnant again. Those who conceived within six months after a miscarriage were 44 per cent less likely to have a second one than those who had an interval of six to 12 months before falling pregnant again.
Women with an interval of more than two years were around twice as likely to have an ectopic second pregnancy or a termination.
