Intercourse after Miscarriage
BabySamba posted:
I need some advice. I had a miscarriage 2 weeks ago, I didn't have a D and C. It happened with pills. I was 6 1/2 weeks and my baby wasn't growing. I just had a sac and that's it. Still doing some spotting once in awhile. When is it ok to start having intercourse? I know I have to wait to try again for a baby until I have a period but when I can be close to my husband in a more intimate way? I know it may sound crazy but I miss being close to him that way. He has been wonderful in just loving me in other ways but I think I am ready to just try. I know it will be difficult and I think about what could have been with a little one but I just want to try. Is this bad now? I think about my baby everyday and I have some bad days where I just break down but I need to be strong. What do you all think?

I miscarried and didn't need a DandC either, it just happened on it's own at 8 weeks. I waited until I stopped bleeding to have intercourse, I figured my body should be healed enough to do that, even if my emotions aren't. I feel so much closer to my boyfriend since sharing this loss, I can't imagine how much closer we'll be if we are blessed enough to finally share a birth.

My OB/GYN recommended to wait to try to concieve again until after 2-3 cycles (2-3 months post miscarriage) so that the uterus has had an opportunity to heal itself and be at its best again for the next baby. I would imagine if intercourse is not painful for you and the goal is strictly pleasure, it should be safe once there is no bleeding. As always, check with your doctor.
