Miscarriage And Waiting

How long after miscariage did you guys wait before TTC again? I have heard several different things (one cycle, 3 months, etc...) I have also heard that it didn't matter, the doctors only want you to wait so that it is easier on them with dating the pregnancy....What do you think?

A lot will depend on the reasons for your miscarriage - if there is one that is. Most doctors will say one cycle to allow for dating but also to allow for your lining in the womb to replenish itself. WIth my first m/c at 6weeks I didn't wait and conceived straight away with my third son who is now 18months old. With my 2nd m/c at 14w4d we waited as I was still bleeding etc after the D&C and I fell pregnant during my second cycle. I am currently 26w3d and so far all is well. Personally I would go with whatever feels right for you and your partner unless there is a reason why you shouldn't. Good luck and I am sorry you have lost your little one.

thanks for the quick reply. I was just curious. I was 6 wks pregnant when I miscarried and my doctor said to wait at least 2 cycles, but in the next breath she said that I sould not go back on birth control for at least for 3 months.

Ah...no would have been my answer! BCP will only mess up your cycles again if you are wanting to try again. It is good to go on it if your cycles are messed up after the loss to try and regulate them again but not if you are wanting to get pregnant soon. Different doctors say different things but I would still say do what is best for you! If you are happy to try again then do so but don't be too worreid if it takes a little longer than expected to fall pregnant. You may conceive straight away though so be prepared for that. I know when I did with my third son I was freaked out for the first couple of months but all was well.

Sorry got mixed up! Were you on BCP before finding out you were pregnant or had you been trying?

i was on BCP until August (LMP Aug 6)..got pregnant ony 2 wks after not taking the pills....I was not trying, I stopped taking the pills only because I couldn't get to the pharmacy... but I was excited and now I have baby fever. I miscarried at 6 wks. My OB said that she wanted my natural hormones to take over for a while (I have been on BCP for about 8 years). I do not plan on going back on the pill

My first was conceived on BCP! I was on it for 10 years. He is five! I understand the baby fever. Always hits when you least expect it! LOL! I never went back on the Pill after it and don;t plan on doing so again. Well I can't. I had cholestasis with my last pregnancy and it means I can;t take anythnig hormonal otherwise it will flare up again. What does hubby/bf think?

so you know what I am feeling? ha ha. My husband? I don't really know how he feels...at first when I told him I was pregnant he thought I was kidding, but then he was ok with the idea and was actually excited, but would not admit it :) but when I miscarried he was concerned, caring, and like always very supportive. He knows that I am not on the pill and doesn't care. We are in our 30's I had planned on TTC in 2008, but I feel like why wait? :)

Only a few weeks until 2008!!! LOL! Hubby was the same after he found out with my first. We were 21 though and in Uni studying so a bit of a shock! I can't see any reason to wait. Your body obviously wasn't worknig with the Pill anyway - at least thats waht my doctor told me with my first so the hormones weren't at level to stop a pregnancy. I would say if you are wanting to try to go ahead! Even if it takes a little while it might be a nice Christmas present! LOL!

:) the way I see it....it is now in the Lord's hands :) I am not on the pill, I don't plan on any other intervention...and my husband is aware. So what happens, happens. I realize that I could have another mc, if I get pregnant soon, but again...it is in the Lord's hands

Yeah thats the way I saw it after both of my miscarriages. What will be will be. This pregnancy was difficult though as I had no signs of losing the baby last time. We are starting to relax now but the miscarriage actually brought us closer together as strange as that sounds. We left it to chance too but I was charting to make sure I had my cycles back to normal! However I conceived earlier than I was expecting to ovulate so it was obvously meant to be!
