Pregnant after a Loss

Birth control after miscarriage/D&C

Hi ladies,

I just had a D&C on Friday. We found out I had a missed miscarriage at my 9 week appointment, this was my first pregnancy and we conceived naturally at 42. We are absolutely heartbroken but we are ready to see another BFP soon.  The dr. told us to wait for at least one cycle.  What type of birth control did you use until you were ready to try again?  I have not been on any BC for the past year and this was a "surprise" miracle that we hope can happen again.  I really didn't think I would ever be a mom and getting pregnant for the first time only reinforced how much I would love to be. I loved being pregnant for even the short time I was but already nervous to think about how I will feel if I am blessed with another pregnancy.  The worry is enough to make my hair turn completely gray!

  • Pull out method.... We didn't have to for long though because we had to abstain after the d&c for 2- 3 weeks I think?

    We also only had to wait one cycle, so it was also just condoms for us as well.
