Pregnant after a Loss

Lurking from TTC after loss.

Hi ladies! I had d&c on February 23rd at 15 weeks. I'm wondering if any of you know when ovulation should occur after a miscarriage. We decided to start trying asap. Thanks!

Re: Lurking from TTC after loss.

  • Unfortunately it all depends on your body.  I got my first AF 42 days after my D&C.  So I could have ovulated about 2 weeks before that point.  I started temping again about 2 weeks after my D&C so I would have an idea as to when AF would show her face.  We were told to wait one cycle and we did so I wasn't worried about catching ovulation for pregnancy purposes.
    BFP 2/11/15 (EDD 10/13/15). MMC 3/30/15 D&C 4/3/15 "We will always love you"
    DD1 - BFP 7/23/15 (EDD 3/31/16).  "We believe in you rainbow" DOB 4/2/16
    DD2 - BFP 2/9/18 (EDD 10/19/18).  "Grow baby grow!" DOB 10/24/18
    BFP 11/16/20 (EDD 7/31/21).  "Round 3 FIGHT!"
  • Agree with @bntfroggie. It will depend. Please first make sure with your provider that it's ok to try again so soon. Providers have different recommendations based on each patient's specific scenario. I was told to wait for two AF's. For me, I don't believe I ovulated after my D&C/first AF. The first full cycle after D&C I'm not sure I ovulated either (I wasn't temping at the time but based on odd CM/CP). I started temping the second cycle and it confirmed ovulation, and I got pregnant that cycle. Luckily for me, my cycles went right back to 27-29 days, but many women have irregular cycles after D&C, so don't be surprised if that happens to you. I highly recommend temping, using the Fertility Friend app, and reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility if you haven't. It's life-changing! Also, if you haven't been there yet, the TTCAL board is full of awesome ladies with lots of experience and knowledge to help you. I wasn't there long, but the community there is great.

  • I was told to wait a cycle after my d&e, but it took two months for my hcg to drop. (My d&c was at 11 weeks.) Everyone is different, like the PP's said. I wish you luck.

    P.S. If you use opk's, be warned that lingering hcg will turn them positive.

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.
