I finally had a natural MC 26th Feb ( just made in within the two weeks period ). I feel perfectly normal mentally and physically. Dr has advised to wait for the 1st cycle of period to come and then try again. Just read stories on how other women's Dr/OB advised it is ok to start straight away after bleeding has passed.
I understand the reason for waiting can be to give your body rest and easier for dating scan. Has anyone gone and fallen pregnant soon after mc ? x

I’m currently 4w3days pregnant and was straight from a early m/c on the 25/1. However it’s was a very early loss. FS said it was ok to for me to keep trying straightaway x

Hi happy Bub, I’m very sorry for your loss. I had a very early miscarriage a month ago and was told it was fine to keep trying streaight away - I think it depends on how far along you were and if you had a D&C (which it sounds like you didn’t).

Even though mine was an early loss, a month later my hormones are still dormant and I’m still waiting to O. So it can take a little while for your body to regroup.

I'm sorry, I'm glad that you're feeling positive xx

I have fallen pregnant twice the cycle right after a MC, once after a loss at 6 weeks and once after a loss at 9 week (D&C both times). My OB said that there was no medical reason to wait, it was just a matter of feeling emotionally ready.

Take care xx

Happy Bub - I’m sorry you’ve gone through this, and hope that you’re feeling slightly better, though I’m sure it’s sill very difficult.

I recently read an article which said that the conventional wisdom of waiting a cycle or two is that in many places in the world a significant factor in miscarriage is malnutrition or issues like smoking/drinking that the mother wasn’t unaware of, or was unable to rectify, and that giving it a month or two for example, to improve nutrition through a nutrition clinic, or stop smoking/drinking heavily, led to better outcomes in subsequent pregnancies. In the developed world though this isn’t the same, as very few Australians are malnourished and/or significantly vitamin deficient, or are unaware of the impact of smoking/drinking in pregnancy.
