How long after a miscarriage is consider the right time to wait before TTC? adult content

We just miscarried today at about 5:20 pm so I don't know. We do want to have another one and the doc at the hospital said our test seems completely normal except for slight hormone levels being off but all in all okay to try when we felt was right?

  • After my first miscarriage at 6w, we tried again right away and I never had a period in between. After my second miscarriage at 12w (and two successful pregnancies and 6 years), we actually weren't trying at all but got pregnant about 4 months later. The second was harder for me to recover from, physically, mentally and emotionally. Only you will know when you are ready to try again. Good luck and I'm sorry for your loss.

  • I think whenever you feel it's the right time, go ahead and try again. I think usually they said you should wait several weeks... but I know some people try again right away and get pregnant.

  • So sorry. Sometimes they say 3 mo. Twice I got pregnant right after a miscarriage - my 2nd and 3rd sons.

  • They said because of my 3 day bleeding that it was mostly all nature cared for and that if after my period came back i wanted to try I could. they estimated between 1 month and 1/2 and 3 months based on how I felt. But I was wondering personally how long did the emotional healing take for you and your husband.child's father, etc.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss,If it were me I would wait a little while to heal and then see how I feel,Whatever choice you chose to make I wish you and your family the best of luck.

  • it all depends on you and your SO. For us we tried right away, then after the next one we waited, and the final one was actually Baby C however we were blessed with twin boys (thankfully we didn't lose them too!)

  • I had my first mc about 3 weeks ago and I was told by my Dr and nurse to wait to have one normal period first before trying again. I should get aunt flow about in 2 or 4 weeks. So after that me and my husband can start trying again but we may wait until the new year to start again.
