A recent study has suggested a review of the WHO study whereby women have been advised that if they have experienced a miscarriage they should wait for at least six months before trying to conceive.
It has also rejected the guideline that women who have a miscarriage have a higher chance of having a second miscarriage in addition to complications in a subsequent pregnancy.
The new study in fact tries to establish that women who get pregnant within six months of a miscarriage have the best chance of having healthy pregnancies with the least number of complications. According to the study doctors, the duration for which couples should wait before trying to conceive again is not fixed; with some saying the wait at all is unnecessary.
On the other hand, the WHO recommends a wait of minimum six months. The study added that delaying pregnancy was in fact problematic in the western world with women above 35 years having risks of facing problems in conceiving and 40 year old-women having a 30 percent chance of miscarriage. This risk is 50 percent high in women over 45 year. Delay in conception can in fact further reduce the chance of a healthy baby.
