When To Have Sex After Miscarriage

ella431 - March 5

I recently miscarried.. (started spotting on the 20th of Feb then turned into heavy bleeding/clotting and ended on 5th of March) I heard different things as to how long I should wait to resume s_x. Any advice? We are going to use a condom since I dont want to get pregnant again just yet.. Is it ok to start once the bleeding has stopped? Thanks for any help.

My dr. said and I've heard others say the same --to wait 2 weeks to avoid infection. You DON'T want an infection in there. Could cause fertility problems on down the road. Just to be safe, I'd say wait 2 weeks even if you are using a condom because there is still that chance bacteria could get in there I'm guessing.

Sorry to hear about your loss :-( I definently agree w/ Stefkay! My doc said to wait at least 2 weeks after your finished w/ the m/c..mainly you dont want to get an infection. Be careful 2 weeks later tho..you could very well be ovulating!!! Best of luck to you!

My doctor told me once the bleeding stopped it was okay, because that meant the cervix was fully closed again and that everything had pa__sed and healed. It can vary with each m/c though because one might be further along, or require different treatments. My m/c started on the evening of Feb 11th and pa__sed the baby just before midnight. I had gone to the doctor on Feb 12th and it was determined my m/c was complete, and I'd just bleed for about a week, and after that could resume intercourse again, and could ttc again once my hormone level zeroed out. I had a follow up on the 19th, and was told I was in the clear to ttc again whenever I was ready. My pregnancy was only about 5 weeks along (should of been 7) and my m/c was natural. I have heard that if you have a D&C the healing time is a bit longer because of the sc___ping. So depending on your situation it could be similar or different to mine and the best thing would be to consult your doctor to get a definitive answer. Otherwise, the 2 week advice should be solid. I am so sorry you had to go through all of this.
