Study on how long to wait after miscarriage

"Effect of Interpregnancy Interval on Outcome of Pregnancy after Miscarriage: Retrospective Analysis of Hospital Episode Statistics in Scotland" (BMJ) suggests that at least for Scottish women, it may not be such a great idea to wait six months after miscarriage before trying to conceive again.  In this study, complications were actually lower for those who got pregnant again quickly.

When I had a miscarriage, my doctor told me to wait three months.  I looked online to try to figure out why, and I never came up with a clear answer.  Even this study is fairly limited...but I'm glad we're trying to give women advice based on evidence...
