Hello everyone I am Kishia. I had a m/c 5/1/05 due to a blighted ovum. I want to start ttc right away and want to know if I need to wait until I get my first cycle or is safe to try now. I alreay have 2 sons ages 7 & 5 and I really want to try again. Me and my so have not been doing anything to prevent pregnancy since I stopped bleeding.

I would talk to your dr. Mine told us that we did not have to wait but I m/c at 17 weeks and had a d&c. I have two daughters that are 5 and 7. Good luck!

I agree, drs differ. Usually if you have a D&C they tell you to wait at least one full cycle to give the lining a chance to build back up. They scrape most of it away, thats what the C stands for in D&C. Though I know some women who got pregnant immediately after a D&C and went on to healthy pregnancies and babies. Some say 3 cycles but usually for emotional reasons. There are a few conditions (like molar pregnancy) where they have you wait much longer. I had a natural miscarriage and my doc said if we were emotionally ready to go ahead and start trying. I was 37 at the time and he thought time was an issue. We did have emotional problems though and didn't get pregnant until 3 months later.

I had 3 d&c's after each miscarriage and was told to wait until i'd had a cycle before trying again.
IMO i think your body needs a bit of time to readjust but it is just down to personal opinion i suppose.

Good Luck

I asked my doctor about it and he told me that they normally tell you to wait at least two cycles, but it really isn't necessary. The two cycles are really so that they can date a pregnancy easier. The first cycle after a m/c is usually a little messed up, that's why they want you to wait for two . . . so your body can get back to normal. There really is no reason other than taking time to emotionally heal for you to wait. If you feel up to it physically and emotionally, I say go for it. Even if you get pg before your first AF after m/c, they can date the pregnancy by early u/s.

I was told to wait 2-3 full cycles. I waited three. Gave me some time to heal emotionally and physically. I believe in waiting a little while. I just wanted to make sure I was ready and so was my body. I had no troubles concieving when we did try. Concieved first month of trying.

I also agree that each doctor seems to have their own opinion on that but my doctor told me to wait 2 cycles until we started trying again. I had a natural m/c and he said my first period wasn't a real true cycle so that we could start trying the cycle after that - it ended up being about 2 months but I agree you need some time to deal with everything that has happened no matter how early into your pregnancy you were. Good luck!

My dr. recomeded 3 months/3cycles, but as soon as I stopped bleeding we decided to TTC again.
My best friend had a miscarriage at 6-7 weeks and then she started TTC again right away. She got pregnant a month after her m/c and on May 22nd 2005 she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and now I have a lil god daughter. Each doctor is different and so is every womans body.
