Attempting Conception After Recurrent Miscarriage

If diagnostic tests don’t reveal any structural issues with your reproductive system, chromosomal problems, hormonal issues, or conditions such as fibroids, your specialist at NYU Langone’s Fertility Center may recommend that you try to conceive again after your menstrual cycle returns, typically four to six weeks after a miscarriage. Sixty-five percent of women with unexplained recurrent miscarriage go on to have a healthy pregnancy.

Your doctor can help you determine if and when medical treatments for recurrent miscarriage should be considered.

Many women experience grief and self-blame after a miscarriage. Our specialists can refer you to a psychologist or social worker, who can help you heal emotionally during this difficult time. You may also benefit from joining a support group, which may help reduce stress, a factor that can contribute to infertility and miscarriage.
