Sex After Miscarriage
by Nancy Sullivan, CNM, MS, FACNM
Nancy SullivanQ. How long do I have to wait after my miscarriage before I can have sex again?

A. Most midwives and physicians would advise that you wait to have intercourse again until the bleeding completely stops and you are not having any other symptoms.

Also, they advise not to try to get pregnant again until after you have had at least one normal period following your miscarriage. Psychologically, this will also give you time to mourn the loss of this tiny child, whom you can never replace, and prepare for another one.

In the meantime, you and your husband should get in lots of cuddling time together.
