Hi, I'm sorry for your losses. My experience is different than yours, but it seems to be a doctor's preference as to when to start ttc again. The general consensus around here is wait until you get your first af after a loss, then whenever you feel ready after that. After my last loss, my doc told me to wait a year, at my 6 week checkup I talked him into a clomid prescription - I told him I needed to start now, not in a year. He said medically that was fine.

I know nothing about genetic testing.

You've found a great group of very supportive women here, I hope you'll find the support you are looking for.

Good luck to you, I hope your stay here is short!

Welcome, Laura. So sorry to hear of your recent loss. I did wait 2 months before TTC again, but I was 17 weeks along at the time of my D&E/D&C, so I figured it would be best to take my doctor's suggestion and wait for my hormones and body to normalize. I had an amniocentisis done two days before my surgery . . . the results from the amnio took a little over a week to come back; the genetic analysis of the tissue sampling took a bit longer . . . I want to say 2 weeks, but can't exactly recall. Again, welcome here. And best to you as you recover from your loss.

I forgot to add about the genetic testing...Mine came back about 6 weeks after my surgery...I had the D&E/D&C on 1/17/11 and my results came back 2/23.

I am so sorry for your losses :( We were advised to wait one cycle, but we didn't wait, I miscarried naturally at 6w5d. I've read that after a D&C its more important to wait due to the uterine lining.

Im so sorry you had to find this board, but it is a great group of women. My MW told me "Most OBs will say wait a few months, and I sometimes tell women that too, but the truth is, it doesnt really matter in a natural MC. If you feel you are physically and emotionally ready, try when you are ready" So we started trying right away, after every loss. Now I know for ectopic or late term losses, they need you to wait longer for your body to heal and such, but since youre were uterine and you passed everything on your own, and then had a D&C the second time, I would say try when you are ready :)
