Hey all,
So I had a D&C just over 3 weeks ago and wanting to hear peoples stories about when they tried to fall pregnant again. Originally I did IVF for my son and then naturally fell pregnant 6 months after he was born. After my first scan baby was measuring small but had a heart beat and then follow up scan no heart beat.
So my period has returned 3 weeks later and not sure if we wait for the next cycle or just start trying straight away. Thoughts....

So sorry for your loss xxx

I started trying two weeks after my D&Cs, when my OB gave me the all clear. I didn't wait for my period and have fallen pregnant twice the cycle after the D&C

ETA: I will say that my OB told me that there was no medical reason to wait, it was more if I felt psychologically ready to TTC again.

So sorry for your loss Lexie28.
The advice I was given was to try again when I felt ready, both physically and emotionally.
Good luck xoxo
