Sex after miscarriage Blair B Due January 25; 1 child; 1 angel baby; Pennsylvania 3227 posts

I talked to my doctor today and she said I could have sex as soon as the bleeding stops and the bleeding has stopped. The only thing is I didn't specify if I was going to have unprotected or protected sex. So what I want to know is it safe to have unprotected sex and risk getting pregnant so soon? I had the miscarriage a week ago and my hcg levels aren't down to 0 yet.

After my miscarriage we started trying again as soon as the bleeding had stopped. Took us 3 months to get pregnant again, but I have two friends who got pregnant right after a miscarriage and had healthy pregnancies. My doctor told me he likes people to wait at least one cycle for dating purposes but we were free to try again as soon as we felt ready. 

Sorry about your loss. It's a horrible thing to go through :-(

My doctor advised me to wait one full cycle. So, we used protection,  and waited one full cycle. If you're TTC and your doctor said it was ok after the bleeding completely stopped, then I guess it's ok to.

We had unprotected sex about 7 weeks after my miscarriage. My levels still weren't 0 but did not end in a new pregnancy. I got my 1st PP period 2 weeks later.

It's only been a week for me. And if you don't mind me asking why did you wait 7 weeks?

To be honest? I was still bleeding. I had heavy bleeding for a week, spotted for a solid 2.5 weeks and started bleeding heavy again for about 1.5 weeks. When the bleeding finally stopped I spotted again for a couple days and my doctor said I could have sex once the bleeding quit. Poor DH had to wait almost 3 months before we could be intimate again. (Got pregnant in June, put on pelvic rest in July, found out I had a missed miscarriage at 7 weeks in August) So between June to mid September we didn't have sex. We were told to wait 2 normal cycles before TTC again and we started officially trying again in November.
