I am 38 years old and lost my baby on 1 November 2013 at 7 weeks. What are the chances of me getting pregnant again and after how many cycles is it possible?

Thank you for the encouragement Jodi. I am a few days late with my period but will wait a few more days before I test. Hopefully it is a +++

I had my youngest at 36, but before her, I had two miscarriages. Over 35, miscarriages are more common, as eggs start to deteriorate. However, that doesn't mean that you will necessarily experience another one, although it could take a little longer to get pregnant these days. I believe there are tests now to determine the number and health of the eggs you have left!! So if you wanted to go to that extent you could, but at this stage, I wouldn't say that the miscarriage meant you would have trouble with getting pregnant again. Why not give it a try, and if in 6 months you still aren't pregnant, have a chat to your doctor about checking the status of your fertility.

when I wanted to get pregnant at 40 my ob-gyn said my history of pregnancies was my best indicator for another healthy pregnancy. And my pregnancies with my two boys went full term and were fine. I also read that miscarriages are more common than you may think. So don't be afraid. Good luck.

I have 4 beautiful healthy girls from a previous marriage. This would be my first with my partner. This was also my first miscarriage

Sounds like a question for your doctor. My non-medical 2 cents..If you are a healthy 38 yr old, why wouldn't you try right away. Is this your first attempt at having a baby?
