Hi doc
Just had a miscarriage. Baby died at 9 weeks. Found out at 11 weeks.
How long before it is safe to try again? Some say 1 cycle, some say 4 months? Am I at greater risk then others for another miscarriage? This was my first baby and first miscarriage.
Is it better to wait a few months -to avoid another miscarriage?
We tried for a year, I know I'm not ovulating regularly. Some say you are very fertile right after a miscarriage. Is this true? What options do I have?

You are at slightly higher risk for another miscarriage. It is suggested that you wait 3-6 months before trying again.
