My doctor said to wait 2 cycles, but I think I'm in the minority there. I wasn't emotionally ready for 2-3 month anyway. Good luck with whatever you decide!

My dr. said we could go for it after I got my 1st period. However, I didn't feel emotionally ready until about 5-6 months after our m/c.

I've been wondering and reading the same things. It seems like the general suggestion is to wait at least one cycle, however, some health professionals say that there's no real medical reason to wait even one cycle except for dating purposes. Which is a non-issue for me, because my cycle is so irregular that doctors don't trust my LMP to date a pregnancy. So I'm not sure, except I think I'd feel more comfortable erring on the side of caution and waiting it out through at least one AF in case there is a need to wait for your lining to thicken up again. I really wish this was a black and white issue so that I knew one way or another whether it was medically okay to try before 1st AF or not. But I guess, like I said, I'd like to be more cautious than less.

I know that for me at least - I would wait the month. Just because if you get pg right away, knowing that you could have caused it by just not waiting one month - I know that I could NOT handle that thought.
