Question: Hi there,
my girlfriend was pregnant and we had sex last weekend, and the following evening she miscarried (clotting/heavy bleeding) which was confirmed a few days later by a doctor.

Due to the short time between our sexual encounter and her miscarriage, is it possible she could be pregnant again? (We haven't had sex since then)

Hi
Welcome to healthcare magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns today.

It is not possible for her to get pregnant with the last sexual encounter. You need not worry about it.

Just one clarification. Was her miscarriage confirmed by ultrasound. If not it is important that she gets an ultrasound scan done. Because occasionally despite heavy bleeding, pregnancy may continue.
I hope this is helpful.
If you have further concerns, I will be happy to answer.
Best wishes,
Dr Ramadevi Wani
