I had a D&C done on the 26th of April because of a missed miscarriage at 7 weeks... I'm just wondering if anyone knows how long you should wait before having s_x again? We plan on waiting 2 or 3 cycles to start "trying" again so I had my Dr. prescribe birth control...he said to start taking it this Sunday. I don't know if I will physically be ok to have s_x that soon or not. I feel a little pain in my cervix, but not enough to have to take something for it. Any advice would be appreciated.. thanks.

I was told to wait 2 weeks before having s_x, but not specifically about waiting to ttc. We were intimate the first time 10 days after D&C and I started bleeding heavily for a day after that. I have read the same thing happening to others on other posts on this site. Only start having s_x or ttc when you feel emotionally ready. Having a m/c is a big thing to deal with. Good luck.

I had my D&C done on the same day, because of a missed miscarriage, and I was also 7 weeks. My doctor told me to wait 30 days, and my sister in law had the same situation, and she was also told a month.

I was told to wait 4-6 weeks after my d&c but I only waited 3 weeks. It was a little painful the first couple of times, physically and emotionally. Just make sure you feel ready regardless of how fast you think is appropriate for your husband or relationship.
