I am terrified of having sex after miscarriage — will we ever be normal again?

I’m 31 and I’m getting over a miscarriage. I lost the baby just before my first scan and I’m in bits about it.

My husband is understanding even though he’s been through the heartbreak too, of course. He’s 35.

My body has had a huge shock and feels so broken, and my emotions for my lost child are draining.

I can’t get over this fear of sex.

Will our relationship ever get back to normal?

DEIDRE SAYS: It is little consolation now but there are thousands of women who go through the sadness of a miscarriage, then have happy, healthy pregnancies afterwards.

Give yourself time to come to terms with your loss but find other ways to be intimate, such as massage.
