Miscarriage is not a pleasant experience for any couple especially the woman. Many are deeply affected with the loss of pregnancy which takes between two to three months before the woman will get over the shock and the experience. Some of the issues that agitates the mind is that is it safe to engage in sex after one has just lost a pregnancy, would the couple garner the necessary mood to commence another journey of pregnancy beginning with sex?, would the woman be strong enough to allow the man into her “pot”?

In summary, sex after marriage is a topical issue and a great emotional debacle for the woman. However, life must go on in spite of all circumstances, experts and medical doctors have suggested that sex can resume fully two weeks after the loss of pregnancy.

It is generally believed that once the bleeding that usually followed miscarriage is over, it is safe to begin sexual activity. Experts say the cessation of bleeding usually lasts two weeks and that thus time frame would have allowed the cervix enough time to close up. It is advisable to allow the cervix to fully close as there is higher risk of infection to the uterus if one engages in sex before the cervix is closed.
