I'm hoping someone here can answer my questions. I know the standard answer "everyone is different" but I'd like to know what to expect. We just had an early (about 7 1/2 weeks) m/c. I don't have symptoms of PCOS or fibroids or any chronic conditions. I did have very low progesterone, so I know that may be a concern in the future. I did not have a D & C, everything happened "naturally" and I'll have weekly bloodwork until hormones hit zero.
When is it safe to try again after an early m/c if there are no other complications? I've read lots of women get pregnant again within weeks. My OB office has a standard policy that every woman wait at least 3 months after their hormone levels hit zero before trying again. They don't take personal health or history into account, it's just a rule. I can't find any reason online for that. The info I've read online says that a women's body is ready when it ovulates. (I'm talking early m/c with no complications only, I know there are women with other struggles that change things.) I'm thinking of charting so that I can confirm ovulation and trying as soon as I feel emotionally up to this again. I had low progesterone with this pregnancy, so I'll be charting and testing as soon as we go back to having unprotected sex, that way I can get progesterone tested early next time.
With no infections or complications, are there physical reasons not to try again? I
