air travel & ttc after m/c

Hi Ladies

has anyone done any research on flying in the 1st trimester? I was advised by gp and gyno it was safe but have had 2 m/cs after flying (both at week 6) so I am a bit suss..

also, does anyone know if you should wait after a m/c and d&c before ttc? my chinese herablist suggested 4-6 months but that seems like a long time at 41!!

Would appreciate your wisdom


((hugs to all))

It seems from what you are saying that your M/C's were unexplained. Maybe you should consider doing some blood work with Dr. Beer. He is the best!! He can work with you long distance in conjunction with you OB or RE. His web is

If there is anything I can do to help just give me a post!!!
