Hi Winnie: I am so terribly sorry about your miscarriage, that is so sad. I did not have a D&C with mine, but I have heard other women say that oftentimes the doctors recommend waiting about 3 months before trying to conceive again. However, lots of women decide to try sooner than that, some right away. The decision is completely up to you. The way I have heard it from my doctor and others is that you are at no higher risk to miscarry a second time by "getting pregnant again too soon"...it is still a 1 in 5 chance, just like any other cycle. For a D&C, they say that it does take some extra time for the lining of the uterus to build back up again, but if your body is not ready, the egg would not implant, so I don't think there is any harm in trying again when you feel emotionally ready to. My heart goes out to you as I know how painful all of this is. Give yourself some time to recover and take good care. Hugs. xxoo
