I was pregnancy recently but lost the baby.  I had a D&C in early March.  How long should I actually wait before we try again?  I've heard different things regarding this.  I've also heard that my fertiliy has increased because I just had a D&C.  Any ideas?

Studies have shown, that after a miscarriage you can get pregnant easily, or you are more fertile.... I think that is because your body is already doing the things it does when you are pregnant.  You can get pregnant now, and most likely everything will be fine, however you have been through so much stress, emotionally and physically and it is best that you give your body a little break and let it heal.  I would say ATLEAST 3 months, but do talk to your doctor and see what they recommend.

Hi hun, first off, I am very sorry you had to go through a miscarriage and D&C. I had one last October. My dr. told me to wait until I had 2 normal periods before trying again. It took 7 weeks before finally getting my first period and my cycles were longer than they were before. The first month of being able to try...BAM! We got pregnant and all is well. Some dr.'s recommend 1 mo. to 1 yr. depending on your situation and health. I'd double check with him before making any plans. Good luck!
