Miscarriage and pregnancy loss brings lot of different feeling for different people. Feelings such as sadness, anxiety and depression can overwhelm during such times. Hence, making a decision to try another pregnancy may seem very difficult. On the contrary, if after sometimes you feel you are not coping with your feeling. You may need more support, but before then, here are some tips to help you get pregnant just after a miscarriage:

Drink Enough Fluid

A surgery or a miscarriage can be physically draining so make sure you drink enough fluids after the operation to get your energy levels back. Fluids will hydrate you and help you to get back to your normal pattern of eating.

Take Rest

The doctor may recommend bed rest after an abortion as deemed fit. Listen to the doctor and take bed rest, as it will help you to recover faster. The faster you heal, the better your chances of trying again for a baby. Take a break from office if needed.

Get Your Vitamins

Make sure you continue taking your vitamins and folic acid even after an abortion or a miscarriage. This will ensure that your body is getting the required nutrients in order to be able to sustain a future pregnancy. Eat a balanced diet and make sure you get your regular 8 hours of sleep.

Avoid Exercise

If you have just had an abortion, you will be asked to completely stay off exercise for at least 2-4 weeks. You will be asked to not lift any weights as it may put a lot of strain on your body. You will also be asked to not do heavy housework, which involves, climbing, lifting or reaching out.

Make Sure You Do Not Have Sex For At Least 2 Weeks After The Surgery.

Although you might feel horny, it is required to give your body sufficient time to recover from the operation.

Speak To Your Doctor

It is wise to speak to your doctor before you think about having a baby. The doctor will give you the correct advice on how long you should wait before trying for a child.

Speak To Your Spouse

It is very important that you speak to your spouse on when is the right time to have a baby. Do not feel pressured into having sex if you are not feeling up to it. Even if you feel satisfactory with sex, you need to have a protected intercourse if you do not want a baby. Always remember that the decision to have a baby should primarily rest with you no matter what anyone else says.

This is your body and you know best when it is ready to take on the onerous responsibility of carrying a child. If you are keen on a pregnancy, chart the fertile period with your doctor and plan to have sex during that time to maximise your chances of conception. Have a baby when you are healed physically and emotionally especially if you had a miscarriage and are feeling depressed. Practice birth control in the period in-between.
