pregnant again from the night before miscarriage?

User Profile
My ex girlfriend was pregnant and had a miscarriage we were both unaware that she was pregnant and had a miscarriage. We had unprotected sex the night before she found out and the fetus and everything was removed from her body the next day. Could she have gotten pregnant again that night?? Or did the sperm just go to the fetus that had to be removed???

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The intercourse itself could have resulted in miscarriage. Early pregnancy loss is common if intercourse results in intense orgasm leading to uterine contractions that expel the contents out. If she is still bleeding and passing out the products of conception, chances of pregnancy are not possible. She should consider observing her current bleeding/periods, and visit her doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation if it is persistent, getting heavy, or associated with severe abdominal cramps. If ultrasound scan done reveals products of conception to be in uterus, she would require a D&C procedure to be done to help clean the uterus and stop the bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
