The worst thing that can happen to a pregnant woman is for her to lose her unborn child.

A woman who suffers a miscarriage might blame herself and think she should have done something differently to prevent it. She could become laden with guilt, anger, and sadness.

After a miscarriage, it is normal for you to want to try again, but there are things you must note and abide by in order to prevent it from happening again. Check them out below:

1. Avoid sex

According to medical practitioners, a woman who suffers a miscarriage should avoid sex for at least two weeks in order to prevent an infection.

2. Don’t get worked up over irregular menstrual period

A woman who suffers a miscarriage will not see her period until six weeks after the miscarriage. So, don't be scared, as emotional and physical stress could result in more complications.

3. Engage in sex after taking a short break

Once you are physically and mentally ready to try again, do not waste time in resuming sexual intercourse with your partner. You can conceive if you have sex before your menstrual period begins. So, you should keep trying.

4. Consult a doctor

Women who have experienced a miscarriage more than twice might need to be examined by a doctor before attempting to get pregnant again. This is to ensure that there are no underlying issues. You can also consult your doctor if you have questions.
