I have no idea where to post - TTC after loss? TTC with infertility? I have always had a great deal of respect for all the strong women on this board (long time lurker) and I thought maybe you could help me decide what to do.
So, we just lost our pregnancy at 14 weeks. My D&C is scheduled for tomorrow. I am beyond sad as we tried very hard to get pregnant with my son and went through a lot and got pregnant fairly easily with this baby after 3 cycles of unmonitored Femara.
I want to start trying right away. I'm 36 and my husband is 42. We really want a sibling for a son and we feel like time is not on our side. Plus, I feel like the prospect of conceiving again is the only thing that really makes me happy right now.
So, I have PCOS and have never had ovulatory cycles on my own without the Femara. Everything I read online says that after the D&C to wait for a period and then get started trying to conceive. But, without ovulating, will I have a period on my own after the D&C? How will I know a cycle has passed?
In other words, how long do I wait before taking the Femara? I take it days 3-8 and then start OPK testing...
