My sister in law had a miscarriage in september. I just found out I am pregnant 5 days ago, and she is devasted. How long does she have to wait until she tries again to avoid another miscarriage. If you give a website reference, I will mark you as the best answer! Thanks

It depends on different factors. If she had a D&C it will be a little longer than if she didn't. (I didn't have a D&C so yes, there ARE some instances where you don't need one). Usually it's a few months. Really...she should consult with her doctor. He knows more about her situation and condition than anyone, and could give her a more educated guess as far as time limits go.

It should be at least three months to allow the uterus to go back to normal. This is from personal experience on the recommendation from my Doctor.
