Hi ladies I am new here and I have a question we experienced an early loss (5weeks) and I was wondering what your opinions or experiences are with trying again right away and not waiting 3 months. I really don't want to wait
Sorry to hear about your loss. I think 3 months sounds like a really long time especially if it was a natural miscarriage at 5 weeks with no complications. I've seen a lot of doctors say it's okay to try again right away and some that say to wait a cycle or 2. 3 months does sound like a long time though!

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I too wonder why you'd need to wait that long. I'd ask your doc for his/her reasoning. I have had 2 losses- one with a D&C, the other with misoprostol- and didn't need to wait until after one natural period, to allow a healthy lining to build up again.
So sorry for your loss - I agree with the other ladies. My doctors policy for an early natural miscarriage is right away and after a D&C wait one full cycle. I agree with the pp - I would ask your doctor what the reasoning is.
Thank you *Kiliki* for the amazing new siggy!!
I was told to give your body time to heal and I was like really what is there to heal from? Didn't really get an answer was told to make sure I am getting enough folic acid. Not too sure I think that was there way of saying we are saying 3 months but with no real reason. I think we'll I know I am trying again right away my reasoning is at that point alot of people would not even know they were pregnant. Idk I really appreciate your opinions and experiences. Thank you
I had an early natural loss too and was only told to wait until my first AF, not counting the bleeding from the miscarriage itself. So one cycle basically. I do think I needed that cycle to heal emotionally even if my body didn't physically.
Thanks Bokkechick for my wonderful siggy! TTC Blog
I totally understand to need to heal emotionally I think that is probably the main reason they tell you to wait after an early loss such as I had. I feel for me the best way to heal is to move forward I hope I am right and that decision will not bite me in butt. Thanks again so much for you opinions and experiences it is comforting to know I am not alone. I know this happens a lot more than people irl talk about.
I know several women that conceived after loss before their first cycle and went on to have completely healthy babies with a loss that early it really doesn't compromise your body in any way. In fact, some research says that having those post loss hormones in your system help you conceive better. GL with whatever you decide! Hope you get your rainbow baby soon!
My belief is that if you miscarry naturally then you should do what you feel comfortable doing. I waited a month after my first miscarriage and I was so mad because the next month I didn't even ovulate (and I have delayed ovulation).
When i finally did ovulate I got pregnant and had a chemical. I did not wait the next month and we got pregnant right away and so far everything is going okay.
I know lots of women that have not waited even though they were told to and they went on to get pregnant that cycle and had healthy pregnancies.
With a D&C I think it is good to wait a cycle or two to let your lining build back up again.
Also if you had a later loss I think that you should wait a month or two before trying as well since your body was further pregnant and it might just be good to let things normalize a little.
What really matters is that you do what makes you feel comfortable. Most doctors will say to wait and they all have different time frames and reasons for it. My doctor told me to wait for emotional reasons but I thought it would be emotionally harder on me to wait than to try, so we went for it.
I wish you the best of luck with getting your rainbow baby!
I just recently had my first miscarriage at 5 weeks and it was natural. My doctor just wanted to make sure my beta got down to zero before we started TTC again. Once it hit zero, they gave us the go ahead.
