  • Doctors usually recommend you give your body a year to recover from a miscarriage. They sell things in pharmacies that track your cycle and tell you when your most fertile. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about it.

  • If you have an early miscarriage you only need to wait 3 cycles..and that's just so your accurate on your dates (in case you get pregnant you need to know what day your last period started). I 've had two early miscarriages & this is what my doctor told me.

  • You should probably wait until you have 2 full normal cycles. Then you can start tracking your ovulation and preparing your body. Good luck!

  • If you search for "ovulation calculator" you can find things on line that give you an idea of when you will ovulate. Also using ovulation predictor kits really help.

  • My dr advised me to wait for one normal cycle.

  • If you want good information on figuring out your ovulation cycle visit its a brilliant site. Also there are a few things I'd like to say. I'm very sorry for your loss. I too have been through a miscarriage and I know its painful. Personally I think you should wait one more cycle so you have a better idea of what is going on. That first period after your m/c is not considered a normal cycle despite what many women think. Otherwise best of luck.

  • Usually with a m/c in the first trimester you can start trying right away. If you have a m/c or stillbirth after the 1st trimester you should wait at least 3 months. I waited the 3 months and am still waiting for that + test result ugh. Good luck!
