Of course I remember you, we're both from OK. In general, docs say 5-8 weeks after your hcg level drops to 0 (less than 5, really) is when your first AF will show. We've seen a wide variety on the loss boards, though. Until your level drops below 5, you will not ovulate because your body still thinks it's pg. It is possible to conceive between the time your level drops below 5 and when AF should start, but docs generally prefer you to get AF at least once before ttc again. This makes sure your body is cycling again and gives the doc a good date to go on for the next pg.

I hope your levels finish dropping soon so you can get back on track. Mine took exactly 5 weeks after my d&c.

Mine have taken four and five weeks, but like Kathryn said there is a lot of variation. Good luck, and I'm sorry for your losses.

I had a similar situation to you. In July I went for blood work to confirm the pg and my HCG levels were checked again 48hrs later. Instead of doubling they dropped from 650 to 600. My doctor said that since I was supposed to be around 6 weeks and the numbers were low and dropping I was most likely going to m/c.

So she had me go for weekly blood work. I started to have a natural m/c on July 17th and went for blood work that day and my numbers were still around 500. It took 6 weeks for my levels to drop back to 0 and they weren't high to begin with. When all was said and done, I was at the lab for weekly blood work for 6 weeks. I was on a first name basis with everybody!

I started temping the day that I started to m/c because I wanted to know what was going on with my body and I O'd in the middle of Aug when my levels were still around 50 and 14 days later AF showed up. So it is possible to O with trace amounts of HCG in your system and doctor's usually say to expect AF 4-8 weeks after a m/c.

I got pg right after my 2nd m/c but that also ended in m/c but was due to adhesion tissue from my D&C and not because of my previous m/c. This time we waited until AF to TTC again. I guess it all depends on you and what you feel you can handle, and when you feel ready.

Good luck hun.

I think the other ladies have pretty much covered the medical stuff. I jsut wanted to say I know it is frustrating when you are not only dealing with a broken heart, but a mixed up body too. Hang in there - it sounds like they are taking good medical care of you & I am sure af will be back soon & you will be hating her as much as ever. Wishing you a quick trip back to 0...

Lisa- I just wanted to tell you something that might give you a little hope. I m/c the second of twins on August 25,2005 then had AF on September 27, 2005. By October 31, 2005 I was pg with my baby boy and had a healthy pg with relatively no complications. I hope it goes this well for you too.

Thanks vegasMom~That does make me feel better.Last time I started birth control to "try" to regulate me and instead it took forever to get pg again.Don't know if it played a part or not but this time no bc.If it takes forever again then fine but i have a BETTER Dr this time around.So I have hope.It's a start.Thanks again,Lisa

I hope your daughter has a quick recovery. My son had his adenoids out last year (age 4 then) and it made a world of difference for him! He'd had 6 sinus infections from Feb to Aug, and more the years before that. He hasn't had one, nor any asthma flare ups, since the surgery. It also improved his attitude, now that he feels good all the time. I hope your daughter has good results, too!
