  • So sorry for your loss. I was told by my doctor 1 period and then try again. I would still check with your doctor. HUGS

  • It depends how you lost the baby. Was it a normal miscarriage? When I miscarried my doc told me to wait a few months to make sure my body was back on track. I miscarried July 17th and I got pregnant again around the end of August. After I had my daughter I got pregnant again and it took 5 months for me to miscarry (it was an empty egg sac) and then it took over a year for my body to be back to normal for us to try again. I think really it depends on your body and it'll happen when your body is ready. Still you should ask your doctor. I'm sorry for your loss.

  • I am so sorry for your loss, i know how you feel and its NOT easy, its the hardest thing i have ever been through in my life! I lost my daughter at 23 weeks and my dr told me to have 3 NORMAL periods before trying again! good luck and i hope it doesnt take long, its been a year for me and we are still trying :(

  • Talk to your doctor - it depends on why/how you lost the baby, and other things - some women are cleared to start right away, some need to wait a while.
