Hey guys,

Just wondering how long you're supposed to wait after a miscarriage before you start trying again? I miscarried at 6 weeks, so pretty early.

One cycle? A couple of cycles?

My doctor told me I could start trying again after my first menstrual cycle. I miscarried at about 10 weeks or so.

my dr. wants me to wait for two cycles, I m/c at 9.5wks. I will start after the next regular cycle. I just had a very short one this week, wich was only one week after my d&c. So after I get my next one, I will go for it!

I was told 2 cycles. d&c Feb 18th bled for a few days nothing for a few days then bled again so I counted that as cycle one, then I started cycle 2 which is wear I am now. Every doctor says something different. Best of luck!

Hi Sarah,

My ob told me af would arrive in about 4 weeks (after my curette) and after that we could try again. I was 8 weeks along. I think I ovulated last week (2 weeks after curette) but I was very careful not to bd then because I'd read that not waiting one cycle would put me in a higher risk category to miscarry again so I just wanted to be really careful (even though I really really wanted to try asap).

You were six weeks along so I would assume that the 'wait one cycle' would apply to you too....?

I have heard that they tell you wait for emotional reasons I do not know if that is true or not

My Md told me we can start trying again after my 1st period. I had a natural m/c at 7 weeks. It took 4 weeks for AF to arrive.

Hi, Sarah! I'm so sorry for your loss.

The doctor advised us to wait two cycles after a D&C at 12 weeks for a missed miscarriage.
