I just had a miscarriage Monday morning. I went to the doctor yesterday and I have passed everything. I am still upset about the loss but I am ready to start trying again. Is it too soon?

Hi, there, I am so sorry for your loss :(

I had a miscarriage one week ago today (on Oct. 15, Friday) and I saw my doctor two days ago. He said that after your first normal cycle, it is OK to start trying. He also told us that new data suggests that you are less likely to have a miscarriage if you conceive within 3-6 months.

I hope this helps, and I'm asking the Lord to give you a peace and a successful pregnancy.

I dont think it's too soon. As long as both you and DH are both emotionally and physically ready and the DR says it's ok then I say go for it!

Hi, I'm so sorry for your loss.

My doctor told me to wait until I'd had two normal periods (2 cycles) to "improve our chances"

I am sorry for your loss. My RE told me to wait 3 cycles and I will be able to try again with my next cycle which should start any day now. Hopefully we all get our sticky BFP soon.

Thank you everyone for your posts. You truly have made me feel welcome. It also makes me feel better to know I am not alone in this. I have two handsome boys, 13 and 8 and never imagined i would have a miscarriage. But after endless hours of computer research and this board I feel better about the decision to immediately try again.

I have nothing new to add to the conversation. I agree that as long as you're emotionally ready, there is really no need to wait. I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your loss.

I am really sorry about your loss. It is such a difficult thing to endure.

If you both feel ready to try again and youve passed everything naturally, there isnt a medical need to wait. It is very difficult emotionally though to try again, and thats the main reason why some couples do not TTC immediately after al oss. It takes time to heal and process everything, and a new pregnancy will not replace the hurt, loss and emptiness you feel after a miscarriage.. Some doctors may ask you to wait until youve had one full cycle post-miscarriage, just to make it easier to date a future pregnancy.

Hi, my doctor told me what the pp said. I can try as soon as I get my first normal period. Of course I haven't gone through the m/c yet (natural) so I have some time to wait. I'm still very sad emotionally and I know the worst is yet to come. But I have moments where I really want to try again and others where I am uncertain. I think the biggest thing to worry about in being ready is how you are feeling emotionally. If you are emotionally ready-go for it!
