I'm a little confused by some of the comments below. Doctors aren't making the findings up in order to be cruel to women who are grieving recent miscarriages. If a woman wants to try for another child, and the doctor knows this info, s/he should mention it for the patient's consideration (in a tactful way, of course.)

What if the doctor didn't tell her, she waited a year and then had another miscarriage? People would be screaming that a good doc would have told her the facts right off.
