Can You Get Pregnant 2 Weeks after Miscarriage?

Miscarriage hurts you physically and emotionally. Irrespective of how far along you are, how many times you have had it in the past, or what your age is, you will have a hard time overcoming the loss. How you handle your loss may be different from other moms who may have experienced the same.

How you feel after a miscarriage is usually unique to your situation. Some women are keen to try again soon after the loss, while others decide to wait a few months to get pregnant again. Some want to know when it is okay to get pregnant after a miscarriage.

Can You Get Pregnant 2 Weeks After Miscarriage?

Yes, you can. It definitely takes time to heal physically and emotionally. While some women take more time to heal emotionally, it usually takes about 4 weeks to heal physically. In fact, your body may sometimes expel placenta and fetal tissue in 24 hours after a miscarriage.

There may be bleeding, but it turns to spotting within a week or so. This is usually the time when pregnancy hormone levels begin to drop and come to zero within 10 days after the miscarriage. There may still be some yellow or brown mucus vaginal discharge, but nothing else would make things uncomfortable. It takes 2-4 weeks for ovulation to start, and when it does, your menstrual cycle will become normal.

Therefore, it is possible to become pregnant 2 weeks after miscarriage. And if you're really eager to try again, you can make some lifestyle changes to ensure your fertility. Just exercise regularly, eat healthy food, avoid stress, and reduce caffeine intake to better prepare your body.

What Other Moms Say

"I miscarried 6 weeks and 3 days ago, but I am pregnant again now. I went in for my ultrasound and my doctor told me that my baby is currently measuring at 6 weeks and 1 day. So, it means that I conceived within a couple of days after my miscarriage happened. I was never sure about becoming pregnant so early after my miscarriage. I am very happy that I am getting another chance to enjoy parenthood."

"I experienced that traumatic event in August, and I continued to work with my doctor to ensure my HCG levels were normal again. My levels dropped to a 7 within a month after the miscarriage, and my doctor asked me to come back again to ensure the levels are down to 0. On my next visit, I found that my levels were 462. I was pregnant again and it took me 2 weeks to conceive after my miscarriage."

"I believe how long your body takes to return to normal after a miscarriage is an individual thing. I did not have my period for 7 weeks after my miscarriage. Then, I thought I have waited enough and should see my doctor to ask if I could become pregnant again. They performed a pregnancy test and found that I was already 7 weeks pregnant. My doctor told me that I conceived within a couple of weeks of miscarriage date. I am happy and hoping for things to turn out well this time."

Is It a Good Idea to Get Pregnant So Soon?

While you can get pregnant 2 weeks after miscarriage, it is better to wait for a while before you try again. Doctors believe you should stay away from getting pregnant again immediately after a miscarriage. They consider different factors, like if your body has already expelled fetal tissue to tell you about the best time to get pregnant again.

It becomes much easier to determine your conception and due date once your menstrual cycle becomes normal again. It is still possible to get this information with the use of ultrasound technology. However, the World Health Organization recommends women should wait for at least 6 months after a miscarriage to conceive again. Doctors, on the other hand, suggest that you should wait for at least 3 months after your miscarriage to try again.

While it is a good idea to wait before conceiving again, the rule does not apply to every woman. So many factors are at work here, and there are some studies confirming that women who conceive within 6 months of a miscarriage are at a reduced risk of miscarrying again. The best thing is to consult with your doctor and proceed as per their advice.
