TTC after a loss, questions

Posted by on Jul. 1, 2012 at 7:52 PM

I'm sure some of you are TTC again.  How long did your doctor tell you to wait after your miscarriage?  Did you have a D&C or D&E?  If you've had a pregnancy after even just one loss, were you considered high risk or did the doctor not do anything different for you?  If you had a 2nd or 3rd tri loss was the doctor more concerned during a subsequent pregnancy?

I have had 2 children and 2 angel babies... I have never had a D&C or a D&E. The doctor never told me when I would attempt conception again, but after two losses I didn't want to risk a 3rd. I eventually became pregnant again. I am not considered high risk and I will be having my son later this month via c-section.

 I lost my son to an incompetent cervix at 20weeks 4 days on sept 30 2011.  Miscarried at 5 weeks in Jan. Got pregnant again in Jan and miscarried in March. Got pregnant again in May and so far so good..... but yes i'm high risk.  I went to see maternal fetal medicine at 8 weeks. I'm on progesterone supplements and aspirin.  I have to have a cerclage to keep this baby or i may lose him/her like i lost my son. :/  My doctors considered me "highrisk" after the second miscarriage.  GL honey

I had 2 miscarriages and 2 d&c. before becoming pregnant with my dd.  The doctor told me each time to wait just one cycle, before trying to conceive again. I was considered high risk when I was pregnant with my dd, but not because of my miscarriages but because of my age.

I only had 1 natural miscarriage June 21, 2012 no d&c or d&e , Dr. told us after 1st af but ,, we already started trying after I was done bleeding  I am 39 years old if I don't get pregnant before 40 in Oct. I will be a parent to 1 DD and 1 angel baby. Dr. did say not until after 2nd mc will they do a workout on me.... Not that I was trying to hear that .

 Hi Cathryn,

I think you know  most of my story and we had out miscarriages only a little time a part....anyhow...we were told we didn't have to wait and could try again right away. I do have a follow up appointment from my D & C on the 15th and I'm sure I'll get some more advice or input from that.......

I lost my son at 17 weeks. Was induced, delivered then had to have dnc for the placenta. We were told to wait 6 months. So we did, got pregnant 2nd cycle. Yes i was high risk, but my qlfirat was born premature then my loss where they discovered blood clotting issues. I was watched way more closely and was on lovenox injections. Good luck

I had a miscarriage at 9 wks along with baby #2. That was on May 1st of this year. I had a d&c done on may 2nd and my dr told me to wait 3 months before trying again. AF should be here in 2 days and after that we will ttc again. We are ready and I have read so many stories of people only waiting one cycle and trying again. We will wait 2 cycles and hoping for the best! Good luck to you ;)

Why the aspirin? I ask because my doc wants to start me on progesterone and aspirin with my next positive pg test.

I had one D&C and one natural mc. I was only told to wait till after 1st normal AF. This time we waited a little longer as I requested blood work-up after 2nd mc. Turns out everything came back normal....$500 later...for 3 vials of blood. Now ttc. I don't have problems GETTING pregnant, just sustaining it. As soon as I get a positive result, my doc will put me on progesterone and help development I guess! Hope that helps! ((hugs)) to you momma!
