I found out on May 1st that our babies heart had stopped beating sometime within the week before my first prenatal appt (around 8 1/2 weeks) and had a D&C on May 2nd.  Just wanted to know how long you were told to wait before trying to conceive again?  My dr told me 3 months.

I have heard so many different opinions but my doctor said to wait till I get the first AF then we were good to go.

ive recently had a D&C i was told i cant have sex for 6 weeks, but my case also might be different. i had my D&C because the placenta was still inside me after the miscarriage and it was badly infected. HAve ur obgyn keep doing checks and see if you cant get it dropped down sooner if thats what u want.

My Dr told me as soon as I felt better I had my D&C May 12th after m/c on Feb 26th i waited it out but couldnt wait any longer since i was bleeding too much, we started trying as soon as i got AF back, On 6/15 I got my BFP, good luck!

 Hi, I had a D & C on 6/15 at 9w4d....my OB said we didn't have to wait or worry at all. This is also my first loss after 2 successful pregnancies. I've heard all sorts of information. Some think the lining needs at least 3 months to regenerate properly.

I had to have one and I was told to wait for 3 NORMAL af cycles.  Because they scrap the uterus and it needs to heal before you get pg again.  Some women are fine if they get pg right away.  Personally my dh and I waited the 3 months.  Plus we needed the time to heal emotionally as well.
