Thanks for writing to us.
As you mentioned you had a missed abortion and you underwent D&C for that.
Do not worry about this. Missed abortion means that the developing embryo was not healthy and was not capable of continuing growth. Most likely this type of abortions are due to chromosomal anomaly in the embryo.
You can again plan for pregnancy after about 3 months. You should start taking folic acid tablets before conception. You should continue taking thyroid medicines regularly and repeat thyroid test after about 6 weeks to regularise the dosage.
Hope to have cleared your queries.
Take care.
