  • I'm sorry for your misfortune. I wish you all the luck. When I miscarried I was advised to wait 2 normal periods after my D&C, I don't know if that was as a precaution or what but we waited, tried again and had success. Good luck to you

  • I would wait. I lost twins at 16 weeks, Im terribly sorry for your loss. They told me to wait at least 6 months to ttc again. And I did. But all of the people that I have known that have ttc again after a miscarrige have been told to wait till after their second cycle. I wish you luck. It is possible to conceive a healthy baby afterward.... I had a 9lb baby after my MC

  • I am sorry for your loss. I think this a question best answered by your doctor.

  • It's generally recommended that you wait 6 months to concieve after a miscarriage to ensure that you body has had time to fully adjust to their change and is ready to handle another pregnancy. But some doctors will tell you sooner. (Actually, I heard in a group recently that one doctor told a woman to wait a fiull year.) Either way, if it were me, I'd wait. The healthier you are, the better. And giving yourself more time to recover will give you the best results.

  • Do whatever you feel comfy with. I waited at least one cycle. My friend had a D&C and was pregnant again b4 she even had another cycle. And baby was fine BTW. So everyone is different and if you're ready to try go for it.
