I had a m/c on July 6th (15 weeks pregnant)and an emergency d&c on July 8th do to major blood loss, and ended up having a blood transfusion. I have just started a normal menstral period today.. how long should we wait to try again? My doctor says 6 months, but we dont wanna wait that long.. Any suggestions?

Hi Angie. I am so sorry for your loss. I had a mc August 8th, I was 16 weeks. I did not have a d&c and I stopped bleeding after 1 week. My doctor said we could try again after my first cycle.. I do not know how to advise since you had a hard time but 6 months seems a bit long to me. I would wait 3 cycles.. just to make sure everything is ok. Maybe you should discuss how you feel with your doctor and find out the reason he says to wait 6 months, after all you want to be at your best when you conceive again.

thanks for replying liz..Im going to have to go to the doctors soon to get the results from the d&c to find the exact reason why i had the m/c.. I was told the posible cause but the doctor wants to be sure.. 6 months is to long. I have a 26 month old son and I dont want my childern to be too far apart... Im sorry to hear about your m/c as well. take care..

Hi Angie. I have a son also he is 22 months and I don't want them to be far apart either. I am 33 yrs old and don't want to be too old either! I am going to try again after my first cycle or The middle of Sept - which ever one comes first. I asked my doctor if he knew why I m/c and he said he didn't know and sometimes you never find out exactly why. I hope you get healthy sooner than soon.

Hello Angie and Liz. My doctor stated that I should wait at least one cycle, but that he would prefer me waiting 3 months so that the level of folic acid within my body would be ideal for the baby. I have since began taking folic acid supplements to try and boost them up. He says that I really could ttc again after one cycle, so that's when I'm going to try. I hope that all goes well with the two of you and God blesses you with the beautiful healthy children that you were meant to have.
