After Your Miscarriage

Your next period

Your first period should occur within four to six weeks. Make sure that if you do not want to fall pregnant that you use protective measures immediately after your miscarriage, as you may start producing eggs as early as 2 weeks after your miscarriage.


You should have a check-up with your doctor six weeks after your miscarriage to make sure there are no problems and ensure your uterus has returned to normal size. You can also ask any questions about your miscarriage at this time, including the results of any pathology tests.

Complete Miscarriage - 80% of women who experience an inevitable miscarriage during the first 13 weeks of their pregnancy will have a 'complete' miscarriage.
Incomplete miscarriage- About 20% of women will experience an 'incomplete' miscarriage, meaning that some of their baby and/or the placenta are not able to be passed by the woman naturally. You will need to have a D&C.

Trying again

Please know that most women will go on to have a healthy pregnancy after their loss. The general time to wait to try again is from around 3 months, however this is a very personal decision and talking with your doctor will provide you with more information. Consider having a pap smear done before falling pregnant again, especially if you will be due to have one during this time.
