periods depressing and disturbing after miscarriage

Amanda - posted on 02/08/2011 ( 4 moms have responded )




I had a missed miscarriage with my second child just before Christmas. It was natural and very traumatic. I am currently on my second period since and am feeling so down. I'm sure part of it is hormones but I'm wondering if periods will ever feel like they used to. They were always a pain to deal with, but now they just remind me of what happened and that I am no longer pregnant. Not to give too much information but I just find it hard dealing with the bleeding. Does it get any better?

The female body is ready to conceive again immediately after a miscarriage. Hormone levels are at their highest, so infertility is reduced and fertility increased. However, for the sake of the female body and reducing the chance of a second miscarriage, many doctors will suggest waiting at least one regular menstrual cycle to increase chances of getting pregnant and maintaining the pregnancy. Other doctors will suggest waiting up to six months to increase chances of getting pregnant without complications. You may want to check the site for information on trying to conceive after miscarriage, there’s lots of very useful information like how to boost your chances of getting pregnant, how to have a healthy pregnancy, what you should and shouldn't do, what kind of food that actually boost your fertility, and so much more.

Hi. You will always remember your angel baby, and over time it will get easier. It's still very early days, but it will get better

The pain will never go away, but in time it will get easier. I lost identical twins half way through my second pregnancy about 3 years ago and I still think about them. But it's easier to deal with now. I hope things get better for you soon. So sorry to hear.
