Question: My follow up questions to the following answer by Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Brief Answer:
safe to conceive after 3 months of abortion

Detailed Answer:
Hello, thanks for trusting health care magic.
It is safe to conceive after 3 months of abortion and usually conception occurs within 6 months of abortion process.
For conception you should
- have sex on alternate days from 10-18th day of your cycle which are called the fertile days
- take your thyroxine dose daily
- eat healthy and think positive.
I wish you the best of health and may god bless you with a healthy baby soon.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The cause of lack of fetal growth can be detected only after the histopathological examination of the fetus that was expelled at the time of abortion.
For pregnancy you can read mayo clinic guide to a healthy pregnancy or The Pregnancy Book: A Month By Month Guide by Dr XXXXXXX and XXXXXXX Sears.
In your previous query you did not divulge that you were having sex daily. At least every alternate day sex is needed during the fertile period for conception.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Regards.
