More than a thousand couples participated in the study. The couples that tried to conceive sooner without giving a long gap were comparatively successful in achieving safer pregnancy devoid of miscarriages or still births.
Another aspect that researchers observed is that the women who attempted pregnancy soon after a miscarriage were younger, had lower BMI and suffered no fertility issues.
Researchers also say that most of the couples who suffered miscarriage generally wait as they might need sometime to heal and accept the loss.
