I am just curious what everyones doctors suggest.....

My doctor says that I should wait 6 weeks after my HCG levels are back to normal before trying again...this makes sense to me if they are doing additional testing, but for me there really isnt any testing to do.....

Does your doctor suggest waiting a length of time after getting back to normal??? It has been a month since my last loss and I will be getting my levels checked again tomorrow, I am sure it will be a few more weeks before I am 'normal' again. So if I wait the additional 6 weeks it will be at least 12 weeks after the loss

I only had a regular OB for my last loss. Since it was a chemical he gave me Clomid to start that week!

I was always told I needed to wait a few years, but they kept telling me I was too young.

From what I have read around here waiting 3 months or until your cycles are reg again seems to be the norm.

Mine told me one full cycle after hcg was gone... I'm one of those annoying people that drops down to >5 almost immediately though... 6 weeks is a really stupid number in my opinion... since if your body bounces back 6 weeks could put you AFTER ovulation so you'd really be waiting eight...

I know for us personally, we will only be waiting/abstaining if we have a loss that doesn't pass on its own and requires intervention...

My doctor told me that the waiting period after a loss that passes naturally on it's own is only for dating purposes. He told me that if there were no interventions, then there was no real reason to wait.

My RE said that the real reason doctors ask patients to wait is for emotional reasons, but that there is no real reason you couldn't start trying right away if you're ready. I also had a nurse-practitioner say that the reason you're asked to wait is to build up your lining again. The dating thing makes more sense to me..?

My REs never asked me to wait in between IUIs, which were successful, if you don't count the miscarriages, which were caused by genetically faulty eggs and not from the time between IUIs.

My DR's always told me one full cycle after I stopped bleeding. But with my last one that was harder on me becauseI was further along (12 weeks maybe more IDK) she told me to wait at least 3 because I lost a lot of blood during it.

I've always wondered about the whole "building up your lining" explanation. Don't you shed that every month anyways? And it builds up again each cycle? So how would waiting a few cycles build it up more? I'm thinking about trying again this cycle. My last two losses haven't interupted my cycles at all. With my D&C, I waited for 2 cycles though.

I asked about the lining because with my last full term pregnancy, they told me my uterus was so thin they could see the baby right through it & they have never seen one that thin & were surprised it didn't rupture. So, my fear was maybe that is the cause for me miscarrying every pregnancy after & he said that you shed your lining every month & get a new one so that has nothing to do with it. There is no "building up your lining"

I think the drs have you wait because you are not supposed to count your loss as cd1. So, it just makes it more difficult to determine how far along you are. People get pregnant the cycle of their loss all the time. I say go for it.

Exactly, that's why that explanation doesn't make sense to me. I take my RE's opinion over my NP's any day.

My doctors all said when I was ready once I had an all-clear (ultrasound to check for leftover tissue and a blood test).
I've always been ready physically before being ready emotionally though so it's never blocked me.

I've always been advised to wait until I have a normal AF/one cycle. Even when we were doing testing the doctor said we were free to TTC.
