How long should a patient wait before attempting pregnancy again after a spontaneous abortion? Evidence-Based Answer: Women who conceive 1–6 months after pregnancy loss have a lower rate of subsequent miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, preterm birth, neonatal death, or still birth in the subsequent pregnancy than women conceiving after 6 months (SOR: B, large prospective and retrospective cohort studies). However, no trials specifically address when women should attempt to conceive after a spontaneous abortion.
