Hi I am sorry for your loss. I had my first mc resulsting in a D&C on 12/22 my doctor told me to wait 2 cycles. I had another mc again a D&C on 4/16. I went to a RE on monday who told me that after my testing is complete and if the tests are neg. that we can start ttc. He said that you only need to wait one cycle for dating purposes so you know when you conceived. He said it is a myth that you need to wait longer than 1 cycle. I always believed you had to wait 2 or more cycles b/c my OBGYN told me. I hope that helps.

I was told no s_xual intercourse for 2 weeks and it's up to me when you TTC. I didn't wait but didn't catch. Thye sometimes tell you to wait for emotional reasons but I think it's down to how you feel. They like you to wait one cycle for dating purposes but there's nothing stopping you trying straight away. So it's down to you really. Theres lots of women on here that got PG straight away and didn't have a period.

Every doctor/midwife has their own opinion. Some recommend 1-3 cycles. My midwife said if I wanted to try again right away, that would be fine. We did conceive again just 3 weeks after the loss, although it was a natural loss at home, not a D&C. We know exactly how old this baby is, as they can measure the fetus and based on the measurements guess the age, but we also knew exactly when I had ovulated and made up an LMP based on that; besides, the LMP is only an estimate anyway as it is based on you ovulating on CD 14, which most women don't do. So I think the "so we can date it" is an easy way out for the doctor. Good luck.

so sorry for your loss too. i had to have a d & c back in feb. i was told by by ob and doc that we could try again straight away, no need to wait. the midwife however told me to wait a month so that they can date you, thats the only reason why. my doctor said there are no statistics that state you are more likely to miscarry again if you conceive straight away. best of luck

I was 17 years old and I was about 3 months pregant when I lost my baby, I had to get a D & C because the baby died at 9weeks and my body wouldn't get rid of the baby natually. I am now 18 years old and have just found out that i may be about a month or a little over a month pregnant. I am scared that I will have anothe M/C, but the doctor told be that this pregnacy could be a success. Well any ways my doctor told me that I could start having s_x 4weeks after my D&C but you shouldn't untill you are emotionally ready ...which took me almost a year. Sorry to hear about the loses ladies, god bless you all!

Dear ladies, I lost my little one at 8weeks and emotionally made the decision to have the D&C since my body, like my heart was refusing to "let go" I just had a D&C today in fact...I'm at home resting and finding some comfort reading some of the posts. My doctor told me to wait at least two cycles, preferably three, however I have heard stories of full term healthy pregnancies with couples conceiving on the next cycle. Best of luck either way.
