Hi! I recently joined the multiple miscarriages board. I just had my 2nd mc in a row and 1st D&C a little over a week ago. I'm just curious how long y'all waited to try again and how long it took you to conceive again. My doc said we can try right away, but we are going to wait until after I get my period again, just so we can time everything better. I've heard some doctors say you have to wait 2 or 3 cycles before trying again. Is there any consensus? What are others experiences?
Average wait seems to be 1-3 cycles. My doc was OK with us waiting only 1 cycle, because our losses were chromosomal. Waiting for at least one AF after your d&c is a good idea because it gives your body time to heal from the surgery. Unless there was a medical reason to wait longer, most ladies on here just knew when it was time to TTC again and followed their hearts.
Do not sorrow; the joy of the Lord is your strength." Neh. 8:10
After my last D&C, 3rd m/c, we were not TTC b/c we wanted to wait the 3 cycles. But I got pregnant by accident before ever actually having a full blown period. I bled, or spotted for over a month. Thought I needed anotehr D&C but found out that I was pregnant again. I lost that pregnancy early as well. The cause was not found. I know lots of women get pregnant right away after m/cing and go on to have babies but I think waiting until the doctor to give you the thumbs is a good idea.
