  • I have never had a DNC but my aunt (she's 6 years older than me) had one two years ago, I am not sure when her period went back to normal but she was pregnant about three months later. The baby was born perfectly healthy. But like they said everyone is different. :) Good luck!

  • I never had a D&C but I had 3 natural miscarriages. It took 9 months after my first one to have a period and then I got pregnant a month later, it took about 2 months after my second miscarriage to get a period and it only took a month after my 3rd to have a period. I was on meds after my 2nd and 3rd to help regulate my periods and I was on fertility meds when I got preg the 3rd time and when I finally got pregnant with my son who I carried to term.

  • OMG... I too just had a M/C 12-09. The reason Doc's tell you to wait is to give your cycle a chance to become regular again. I got my first period Jan 3 so almost exactly a month after my D/C wich was on 12-10. My second period was Jan 31st. Going to ttc next wkend....I was originally going to wait another cycle but decided didn't want to wait another month.....Best wishes to you
