Is it easier to get pregnant after a miscarriage?

Assuming that you are emotionally ready, and keeping in mind that your fertility is higher after a short period of time after miscarriage, the answer to this question may be yes.

The chances for you to have a successful pregnancy after 1 miscarriage are 85%, and 75% after 2 or more. In fact, miscarrying in early pregnancy is so common that many doctors consider it a normal part of the conception process.

Under normal circumstances, trying to conceive immediately after a miscarriage is good, safe, and easier as long as you and your partner are ready. The odds of having another natural abortion are significantly lower if you TTC within the first 6 months of the initial miscarriage.

Sometimes, doctors advise waiting to try to get pregnant again until your cycle becomes regular again, as it will be easier for them to calculate the Estimated Due Date (EDD)—medically, it is counted from the first day of the last menstrual cycle.
