Pregnancy after miscarriage
I had a miscarriage after five weeks of pregnancy on the 7 August. The bledding lasted for about a week. My periods started on the 30 September.

I would like to know does this mean everything is back to normal and wether its safe to try again for a baby? My gynae adviced me that there is no need for check as the miscarriage took place during the very early stages.

I am 33 and am worried that am getting older and my chances of falling pregnant are getting slimmer.

Things are probably back to normal but the recommendation is to wait at least 3 months before trying again to lessen the chances of another miscarriage.
