TTC After a Loss

TTC after Early M/C

Hello everyone,

 I am new to this, so please forgive me.

 My husband and I started trying for the first time at the end of April. I found out I was about 4 weeks pregnant on May 14th and unfortunately started M/C on May 21st. Bleeding lasted about 6 days and finally stopped on May 27th.


This has been a super devastating experience for us, it was our first attempt, first pregnancy and first loss. We were so excited, it has just been heart breaking.

That being said, we are eager to start trying again. I have heard that some women start trying almost immediately and have gone on to have healthy pregnancies to term. I just wanted to get some other opinions/thoughts about trying after an early M/C and ovulation, etc.


Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  • I'm very sorry for your loss. Your doctor should give you some guidance on how soon you should wait before TTC again. Everyone is different.  There is some good information in the blog at the top of the page.

    I would recommend you change screen names since yours is your email address. 

    Also, if you're looking for success stories you won't find any here as we are all still TTC. Asking on PgAL or even PAL would get better results. 

    Good luck.

    I'm sorry for your loss.  Please contact you doctor to find out what time line they would like you on.  I was told I could start after 1 normal cycle for the first one and the 2nd one they told me to take time to heal (physically and emotionally) but didn't give me a timeline. 

    There is a blog at the top of the message board that is filled with lots of great information.  Welcome but I hope your stay is short :)

  • I am very sorry for your loss.

    I think it would be a good idea to speak to your doc about the time you should/n't wait. Every person around here has a slightly different case, and thus a slightly different time to wait.

    *Hugs* welcome.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Talk to a dr and find out what he thinks. Not sure if you saw one after the mc. I know with my first pregnancy the dr would not see me until I was 10 wks along to make sure I didn't m/c so that might have been your case also. Usually dr's will have you wait 1-2 cycles if it's your first and it's an early one.

  • I'm sorry for your loss. I second the advice of earlier posters.

    The only other thing I'd add is that for safety and privacy reasons, you may want to change your username so it doesn't reveal your full name and email. If you choose to become an active member of this community, you will likely end up sharing a lot of personal experiences you don't want directly connected in a public way to personal information. Since this is your first post, I'd just open a new account with a different username.

    Good luck to you!

    There is really so much wrong with this. 

    First, OP needs to follow doctor's orders.  You personally may have been told to not wait or you may have chose to ignore your doctor's advice (I don't know) but OP needs to follow what her doctor says. If the doctor has not provided her with any guidelines then she should call them.

    Second, what you are saying just does not make sense. I'm assuming that your m/c in March was very early.  Did you verify that you had a m/c then? Did you have betas tracked or take a pregnancy test that was negative in between finding out you were pregnant again? I think you need to talk with your doctor.
