a natural miscarriage

i got pregnant in feb of 08. i miscarried april 26th. the doctor said being that i was ten weeks and the baby stopped growing at six weeks it was a missed miscarriage or missed abortion. I started to bleed that is what made me go the er in the first place. i went back to the doctor she said at that point it looks like everything has come out to watch out for heavy bleeding. i bleed for 2 weeks and then the next week got my period. No foul discharge and had just had my third cycle on the 4th of july. my second cycle on june 8th. how long does it take for a woman who had a natural miscarriage to be able to get pregnant as to someone who had a d&c done. i'm thinkgin just like when you have a baby you blled for sometime and thenyou cycle star in a few weeks afterwards. I got my hcg levels checked and they are zero.

  • I experienced a miscarraige at 6 weeks but it was a natural miscarriage. My doctor told me that i needed to wait a few months, but me being the stubborn person that i am didn't stop trying. My bleeding lasted as long as a period and I became pregnant a month after the miscarraige. Everyone is different. So,getting an idea how long your cycle is and when it gets back on track will be helpful in determining when you can get pregnant again.

  • You can try again when you feel ready. so long as everything came out. My friend got pregnant again before she even had her first cycle following her miscarriage. I was pregnant again about five months following my D&C. Whenever you feel ready go for it.

  • Normally, after a natural miscarriage or a D&C, your body has to readjust which can take a few months. However, once you've gotten a "normal" cycle you are generally free to start TTC again whenever you are ready.

    You should always follow your doctor's advice though.
