Dear Nesh

It is unfortunate that your pregnancy landed up as a miscarriage however it is almost a 10% chance that every pregnancy can land up as a miscarriage without there being any obvious cause found. It is always scary when these things happen but it does not necessarily mean that it will happen again. Your gynaecologist is right that one should wait approximately 6 weeks before attempting a pregnancy again. If you are still scared despite the above then I would suggest that you get a little bit of pre-pregnancy counseling either by your gynaecologist or by psychologist to help cope with this fear.
