  • I had a DNC too, it was REALLY hard, but I reccommend letting your body rest. I waited 6 months and had a perfect pregnancy the 2nd time around. Good Luck!!!

  • Well, I had a D&C and I waited for a couple of days before dh and I had sex again, but it was more of an emotional thing then anything. I ended up getting pg two months later and had a perfect pregnancy (ok, two) after. I think alot of it depends on the reason you had the miscarriage in the first place. Mine was due to to much stress. If yours had something to do with a medical condition, I would wait to make sure it is safe for YOU and the BABY. Good luck.

  • i have had 4 miscarriages...and waiti4ed diff amounts of time between to try again(i have a serious medical problem), so i second the go with your feelings idea. start taking prenatals/folic acid now, it can help.

  • I would say up to 6 weeks at least before really TTC. Just go with your feelings though.
