After a miscarriage, some women may bleed for a week, and others, over two weeks. Take time for your physical and emotional recovery. Keep taking multivitamins that contain more than 400 micrograms of folic acid. However, you may consider avoiding sex and putting tampons or contraceptives in your vagina for at least two weeks after the miscarriage.
Per CDC data, around 7.4% of women, 44 years or younger, were voluntarily childless. There are many reasons people choose not to have children, ranging from personal freedom to varying views on love, career, and commitment. Some people decide early on in life or keep postponing, and others may give in to their partner’s opinion.
Secondary infertility may happen to both men and women. In men, it may be due to impaired sperm production or ejaculatory problems. Women who have given birth to their first child may not be able to carry the second baby to term for various reasons like PCOS, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and other issues.
