  • As soon as you want. However, there are some risks. Low progesterone being one, causing repeated miscarriage. Most practitioners recommend waiting between 2 and 4 months.

  • My doctors told me as soon as I wanted to. I miscarried early on though. Some doctors just don't want to deal with trying to date a pregnancy so don't want to try again until you have had a period. However, my youngest was conceived immediately after a miscarriage.

  • I miscarried just a few weeks into my first pregnancy and the doctor told me to wait until I got my period before trying to get pregnant again. I ended up getting pregnant within a week of the miscarriage and now I have a healthy son!
