could any one tell me how long should you wait before you have s_x again thanxs susie xx

My doctor told me to wait 3 weeks, but I guess every doctor could be different.

susie, my doctor said 2 weeks and some others here have said their doctors said the same. You want to avoid infection, etc. I'd say wait at least 2 weeks and maybe 3 depending on how your m/c was (the further along you were it probably takes a bit longer to heal).

Hi susie. My doc said 2 weeks after mc followed by d&c. I waited a week and a half.

... thought I ought to add that we were very careful to shower well first with antibacterial soap.


Whisper - March 11

I was told as soon as the bleeding stopped, which was about 1 week for me, but we also showered really well first just to be on the safe side =).

I had 2 m/c (both natural) and we could have s_x again once the bleeding had stopped. I think it's longer though if you've had a procedure such as a D&C as that is invasive and you need to allow your system to heal a bit. Just make sure you use protection so you don't get pregnant again right away. They want you to wait at least 1 cycle after a natural m/c, mainly so that they can date a new pregnancy accurately. With a D&C they tell you to wait 3 cycles b/c the lining in your uterus needs time to rebuild up (they sc___pe a lot of the lining away during a D&C and therefore it can be too thin to properly support a new pregnancy if you don't give it time to heal and build up). Good luck and I'm sorry for you loss.

Hi,susie ,My doctor said wait until the bleeding stoppped and said it was ok to ttc then when we were ready and donot have to woory about waiting 4 a period.I had 2 D&C since OCt 06.With a D&C it is not nessasary that they sc___pe your uterine lining,they did a suction on me both times so your lining does not thin out in this sense.My last miscarrage was Feb 13/07 and we are currently ttc now as my doctor gave us the go ahead.

Shiner081 - March 20

Hi susie.I think it may be to early for your period yet.Usually it takes 4-6 weeks for it to return.Hopefully your system is clear(did u have a D&C),better check with your doc. to make sure and if you may have infection.Dunno but I would get it looked at anyway.
