I have read today that you can try to follow the 'sperm meets egg' method following a miscarrage in the hopes of TTC again.
While I am aware of how to time intercourse every other day beginning at CD10, can you count from the 1st day of your previous miscarriage or do you have to wait for a 'normal' period cycle to resume before using this method at all? I just needed some clarification with that. Thanks.

I personally think the sperm meets egg method is tremendously less effective then charting. It assumes that OPKs will be affective for you and that isn't always true after a miscarriage because LH can linger in your system even as the HCG drops.
That being said in charting you use your miscarriage as your last mentrual cycle even though it's not techically a period so I'm assuming you would do the same with OPKs.
