Gap after loss

I did IVF last year and got pregnant at first attempt. My water broke at 19 weeks and had emergency C-section at 26 weeks to deliver baby. Baby had immature lungs and after two months of NICU stay baby passed away last month.
We have 5 frozen embryos with you. My question is how long we have to wait to get pregnant again? And what about the risk of having same prob again in next pregnancy? Is there any prevention method?
