TTC after MC
Dear Doc

I had a MC in August this year, we are ttc at the moment, but everytime my periods are here, we are very dissapointed. I know that people would advice us not to try to hard to conceive. But what can one do to relax? And what can we do to prevent another MC?

It broke our hearts to have a lost a baby. What can we do to prevent another MC?

Fnx.

MERRY XMAS TO YOU AND ALL REGULAR USER.

After one miscarriage, there is a very good chance that you will not have another. You should take folic acid tablets and follow a healthy diet, avoiding smoking and alcohol. It is still early days in terms of trying to conceive. Just try to be patient.
