Question: ovulation and miscarriage


 baby24me - Tue Oct 18, 2005 7:57 pm

I had a miscarriage at 17 weeks due to placenta previa. How soon can I ovulate ? I completely miscarried on Oct 8, 2005 and my husband and I had unprotected sex on October 17. He used the withdrawal method but is afraid that he did not withdraw completely in time. Is it possible that I can be pregnant? Or is it too soon? I had stopped bleeding completely and no pains during or after sex. Please help.

In response to your question, yes, you could have ovulated. After a traumatic event such as a miscarriage, it is hard to say how long it takes to get back to "normal". You may not have ovulated, or may have, only a pregnancy test can answer this question. Consider doing a home pregnancy test in a week or so.

Good Luck.
