Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

When is it okay to try again?

I m/c'd on 8/23/08. My doc says to let my body regulate and go through 2 or 3 menstrual cycles before trying again.
I don't think I can wait that long.
How long did you guys wait before trying again?

Re: When is it okay to try again?

  • Did you have a natural miscarriage or a D and C?
  • Sorry about forgetting to add that little detail.
    It was a natural M/C.

  • 1st time = told no need to wait at all
    2nd time = told to wait 1 cycle
    Switched to a new dr between 2nd and 3rd loss and she told me to wait 2-3 cycles before trying again.
    3rd time = I don't know yet, we are having testing done and that will take a while.

  • My OB said there was no reason not to try right away if we were emotionally up to it and intersted. My DH and I decided to just "see what happened", and in 1 cycle . . .well, see my sig. While true your body may not completely be back on regular cycle, unless there is a specific medical reason to wait, I don't see that you have to. (my m/c was also natural)

    m/c#1 07/16/08 (11 weeks), m/c#2 10/10/08 (8 weeks). and then nothing since except every test possible (no answers). IUI#1 and #2: BFNs Super lucky to be buddies with Peetie. Our out of nowhere, surprise DD born 5/29/2011
  • It is usually best to wait one cycle, but I have heard of people getting pg again before AF shows. That happened to a girl at my hair salon. She was pg, m/c'ed and got pg again. I think her daughter was born 2 months after her 1st one would have been.
  • We are going to try after 1 AF. My doc recommended to wait one cycle because then there is a LMP so dating will be convenient if we get pg on the first try. She said there is no medical reason to wait (as long as the m/c was complete, which you can determine with u/s or betas).

  • I had a d&e. We waited 2 cycles then started trying. Last cycle was our first cycle trying again and I had a CP. My dr said it was most likely not related but it is impossible to know for sure. After a whole lot of thought we have decided to try again this cycle istead of sitting it out.
  • First, I am sorry for your loss. I had a D&C and was told to wait till AF arrived so 1 cycle. But all docs are different.

  • Yea it depends on your physician and situation.  My OB told me to wait one cycle, and my internal medicine physician told me at least 2-3.  I am now on my 2nd and this is the first time we have tried.
