Tomorrow I have my first appt. after my D&C 11 days ago. What are the chances she'll tell me I'm all healed? It may sound selfish, and please don't flame me, but I miss being intimate with my husband. We miss each other. Its been probably 3 weeks. It almost hurts to hug too long, or too tight and know we have to stop at that.


We have to wait another month before the RE will even see us for a post m/c consult. I hope she tells us we can try again. IUI worked the second time, maybe it won't take that long again?

I think we have all been there. I have been bleeding for 44 since I started bleeding and I think 27 days since my MX shot for ectopic. The bleeding was really really light today so I am hoping it is ending this week. It has been forever since we got the loving' on.

Hang in there.

Well, we waited 10 days. I didn't really bleed after my D&C and the cramping only lasted a day or so. And by 10 days later I just couldn't take it anymore, so we DTD. I had my appointment at 14 days post and got the all clear to resume everything as normal. If you're not bleeding and cramping then I'd say you're good to go. In fact, at my post appointment, she didn't even do an internal, it was just a "are you still bleeding?" "no" "okay then" kind of appt. Hope everything is great and you can start trying to get back to it.

Oh thats a relief. I didn't have any spotting or cramping after 24 hrs. Then 8 days later I had a little bleeding for a few hours, but no cramping.


Yes, aside from the connection with my DH, I am really looking forward to TTC again. I wish our RE wouldn't make us wait until the 3rd cycle to have another IUI.

wow, 3rd cycle? really? mine got started right away. I went and saw her 4 weeks exactly after the D&C (the day after my follow up with OB actually) and we got started right away. Granted, I don't have cycles on my own, so we essentially waited another 2 weeks for the prometrium to work and give me a period, but at least I felt proactive. Good luck!

I think that's her policy to allow her patients time to grieve.


My DH promises we'll try w/o her in the meantime. I have regular cycles, but a short (10 day)
