HELLP Syndrome and pregnancy


Q: Good day,
I am 28 year old and last year October I was seven months pregnant. Then I got real sick (my back and sides were very sore, I could not eat anything and threw up the whole time) Since I found out about this pregnancy I was not sick at all, not even once. When I went to my doctor he said that I had HELLP syndrome and that I have to go to hospital to remove the little one. My blood pressure was very high. Unfortunately my baby boy did not survive because his lungs were too weak. My question is, I would really like to get pregnant again but will the HELLP syndrome have any influence on my next pregnancy? And is it too soon to get pregnant again since it has been more than a year back now.

Symptoms:  No symptoms now
