Miscarriage April 9 Thinking About TTC Again

12 Replies
Cheryl - May 7

I had a miscarriage on April 9, I was 10 weeks along and it was my first pregnancy. The whole experince was very painful and ended in the OR with a D&C. After the D&C I didn't have any bleeding, just cramping. Today, May 7 I got my period, which is 4 weeks since the miscarriage. I'm really wanting to TTC again, however I'm wondering if I should wait for one more cycle. I'm confused when the doctor says "wait one cycle before you TTC." Does that mean your first period after a D&C count as one cycle, or should I wait until I get another period? I'm confused. Any suggestions?

I think when the docs say wait one cycle that means you can start ttc after your first period post mc/d&c. It sounds like your doc would say you can start now if you're ready.

I am sorry to hear about your m/c. I had a m/c (d & e) on April 8. My Dr. told me that we could ttc right away if we wanted to. The reason that some dr.'s like you to wait is so that they know the date you concieved better. My dr. said as long as I feel ready for it that I can try again. We decided to ttc right away. I haven't gotten my period yet, but she(dr) told me it could take up to 6 weeks to get my period.

I think waiting one cycle means from one period to another period. I would wait until you get your next period before TTC.

I too had D&E on April 8 and I am still waiting for my period. My doctor told me to wait until my second period and then wait, she showed me a study that says you are more likely to misscarry again if you don't wait. I don't know if it is true or not, but I rather wait another month than increasing my chances of a second m/c. The way I see it if I m/c again I will have to wait an average of 5 months to try again, so waiting another month doesn't seem like a bad idea!

I think it means you wait for one more cycle. The first period after a D & C doesn't count. When drs say wait one period they mean one period after your first period.

I would wait for 3 months before trying. That way your body has a chance to recover. I wouldn't want to risk it and miscarry again

My doc thinks its a good idea to have 2 real normal good periods BEFORE you try again! After all the pain and length of trying to getting pregnant, misscarriage, waiting for af, ect... why do it all over again and m/c?? I want to try so bad again but I want my Uteris healed good first.. Im not going to mc again cus My body wasnt really ready! You did heal up pretty fast that is one thing I can say for you. Wait 1 more cycle then try have fun this extra month! (thats my oppinion) Good luck! SARAH

Wow there are a lot of us that m/c on 4/8-4/9.......I did too, but I was only about 3 weeks along so I m/c naturally and didn't have to have a D&C. My heart goes out to all of you that did have that. I have heard that it is painful. Let's keep each other posted on our progress in ttc!

I had a D&C on April 5. When I went in for the 2-week follow up, my doctor said to wait for 2 normal bleeding cycles.

Hi! My period came on Monday, April 9. It has been very heavy. My dr. told me that this is normal. How was Mother's Day for all of you ladies. Mine was a little hard. My close friend told me she was preg. and we were due only 4 days apart. It was a little hard on me. I do have a son who is 21 months old. So I am thankful for him!! He is the joy of my life. Are you all ttc for baby #1. I couldn't get preg my first time for over 2 /12 years. I heard about this nutritionist who grows and formulates his own herbs. I called him and ordered 2 supplements and was preg in 2 1/2 months. I have been telling anyone i can about this because I know how it feels to want a baby and can't. I don't know how long all of you have been ttc but all my friends that have taken it have gotten preg in less than 3 months. I actually started taking them again after my m/c to get my hormones back to where they should be. if any of you want the info you can email me and i will me more than happy to email you the info. My email is [email protected] I will be praying for us all that we will soon be able to have a baby!!!
