Does Trying to Soon After a Miscarriage Lower My Chances?

I'm a little confused. I've gotten three different opinions..all from doctors. The doctor in the er told me that it's best to wait one cycle since I was 2-3wks when I family doctor said it's ok to start now, that it doesn't lower my chances for a successful pregnancy..and my OBGYN doctor said 2-3 cycles because if I try too soon, I have a greater risk of miscarrying.

  • Doctors have different opinions. Really according to my doctor and also his midwife. When you've had an EARLY loss they suggest you waiting at least 1 cycle so that they can accurately pinpoint a duedate. And the biggest reason they suggest waiting is because many women are still grieving a month after a loss and to minimize stress they suggest you wait until the pain of the loss isn't as raw.

    Otherwise, there is no medical/statistical studies that show a pregnancy soon after miscarriage will result in loss if there isn't an underlying CAUSE for the miscarriage(s)

  • I always heard to wait a couple of months to let you body rest.

  • My sister-in-law didnt wait. And she got pregnant before her next period was due. She now has a healthy 18 month old.
