Welcome. Sry you are going thru this. I decided to try again after my m/c. I am currently on my second cycle post m/c. I think it depends on how you feel and if you are ready to start trying again. Good luck, Jen

I am so sorry about your loss but I am glad you found this site. It as been a big help to me as I go through my ectopic. I am going to try again as soon as my RE will let me do another IUI in November. I am still bleeding from my ectopic so I can't start right now anyway.

I wish you luck in getting a sticky BFP soon. I know it is difficult to have your baby taken from you so soon. My thoughts are with you.

Hi Welcome and I am so sorry for your loss. I just had a recent loss in early July at 6 weeks and I was told to wait one cycle to try again
I did not and I am currently 5 weeks pregnant. So fingers crossed. I think its a matter of if you are ready to TTC again right away. This was my 3rd loss the first was ectopic and I had surgery so had to wait 6 months to TTC again and then my 2nd loss I decided I was not going to try again for at least 3 months because I needed to grieve... this last loss I just knew I did not want to wait. So there is no right or wrong answer its what you feel you are up to. Good luck

I had my m/c in July. I was just shy of 11 weeks when we found out our baby died. I found out on July 20th and had a d&c on the 23rd. I'm still waiting for my post m/c AF. We did get the all clear a couple weeks ago and we have been actively trying again. (My OB told me there wasnt enough info to support waiting vs not waiting) I know I am ready to TTC again, but I also have friends that we're not ready for a couple months. It's a personal decision, but I wish you all the best with your decision and I hope soon your holding your LO!

Hi Kim,
Welcome. I'm so sorry for your loss. I think the decision of when to start trying is individual. I didn't really start trying seriously until about 3 months after. I didn't "feel" ready. I know some women try again the next cycle. I don't believe there is a right or wrong answer. Just go with whatever your heart tells you. Hugs.
