I was told I was going to miscarry in January. In Febuary it completely happened. It was really hard on me because I was trying for almost two years and was on Clomid. I have still not had my period yet. We are sexually active again, but i tested last week and negative. I was wondering how much longer I should have to wait to get my period. Will the doctor give me something to start it? I really want to be able to try again. Also can I start the Clomid at day 5 again? Please help me.

I was just about to ask the same general question. I had my m/c the very beginning of March and still no AF. How long did some of you have to wait before she showed up?

I had my mc in early Feb. My doctor told me I could expect a visit from AF anywhere from 2-10 weeks after my D&C. (I got it in 5 weeks).

I was also told to wait for two AF's before we started trying again.

It took me 5 weeks to get AF but my Dr said that it can take 4-10 weeks for most people. If you haven't gotten it by 8 weeks, ask your dr. Typically they will put you on Provera to get things going again.

As far as taking Clomid again, I would talk to your Dr. I was on it when I got pg too but my Dr does not want me to go back on it now (I am on C4 since m/c) because I am O'ing. He wants me to try without it for a few more months. His thinking ...Clomid can screw with the uterine lining which is trying to rebuild itself since my D&C. That is just my doctor's philosophy though. I would plan to talk to your Dr about it. GOOD LUCK! Hopefully AF will show her face soon. :)

My NP said that it would be an average 4-6 weeks before I got my period but it wouldn't be unheard of for it to be 12. GLTY and I'm sorry for your losses! Jacqui
