Hello Mrs. Ulie
Basically, a woman who has just given birth (whether it was born alive, or was born still alive) or a miscarriage can plan to get pregnant again after completing the puerperium (about 6 weeks after childbirth / miscarriage). The puerperium is a time when the baby is born or the fetus miscarries, the lining of the uterus which has been thickened during the pregnancy will be released so that the uterus returns to the same condition as when it was not pregnant. tear, so that a lot of blood will flow out of the vagina. Over time the amount of blood will decrease and the uterine tissue begins to get closer to the shape of the uterus when not pregnant.
When the uterus has recovered, the body will be ready again for the fertilization process (pregnancy), so that intercourse should be postponed until the puerperium is completely over, because intercourse during the puerperium has the risk of causing infection or bleeding.
If there is a history of the fetus's death inside, it is necessary to study carefully what caused it, so that when the mother becomes pregnant again, efforts can be made to prevent a similar incident from occurring again. That is why you should consult your pregnancy program with an obstetrician so that further evaluation can be done.
