Hello, I would advice using barrier contraceptive for 2 weeks. It has been suggested to avoid any chance of infection since mild spotting can be observed for a few days. Also, you might have chances of becoming pregnant if you do not have protected intercourse.

Hello, well its just to prevent any infection as slight spotting persists for few days and secondly you can become pregnant again if u will not use contraception. So you can have intercourse using condom once bleeding stops

Dear Ma'am,

After a miscarriage most gynaecologists advice barrier contraceptive for 2 weeks in view of increased risk of thromboembolism.

Secondly, till the first period occurs the chances of trophoblastic disease can't be ruled out.

If a surgical instrumentation is done there is increased risk of infection in the first few days post miscarriage.

I hope I was able to resolve your query.

Regards,

Dr. Aditi Kishore Shinde
