When is it OK to try to get pregnant again after a miscarriage?

ANSWER

Most women who miscarry go on to have successful pregnancies. Ask your doctor how long you should wait before you try again. Some recommend waiting until you've had one to three normal periods. Make sure you also feel emotionally prepared.

If you've had more than two miscarriages, you and your doctor can talk about what might be going on and the best ways to help you have a baby.
