Assalamu Alaykum

Thank you for your question. And I’m sorry to hear about your miscarriage. May Allah help you through this.

I’m afraid I won’t be able to give specific solution to your problem because I don’t know what it is, however, it’s very crucial to understand that Marriage is a very holy tie between a man and a woman. The kind that Allah emphasis a lot on.
breaking it off has to have a very solid reason and all other measures should have been taken before opting for it.

My humble suggestion to you is that you give your marriage a chance. Meet up to all the issues you have in it, involve your husband in the thought process and try and solve it. Make sure, you do this before you try and conceive again.
also, you must seek some counseling. Where you can vent out and find practical solutions.

InshaAllah all goes well and you’re able to solves your problem
