You probably already did...you are at your most fertile after an m/c..natural or D&C..I got pg about 16 days after my D&C...so i never had a period between my m/c and when i found out i was pg... anything can happen. be careful though..Friday night i started bleeding heavely and cramping but wont know until tomorrow at the dr if i miscarried or not... They say to wait at least 1-2 cycles after a D&C to TTC to let your body build the lining back up.
Thanks for your response. I have had 2 natural m/c, but this was my first D&C. Don't know how different the "aftermath" will be...
I did get pregnant immediately after my last natural m/c (with no period in between) and had a successful pregnancy, so good luck to you!!
Well..I miscarried this past fri and it was confirmed today but i think the reason being is i didn't wait until my body healed. so we are going to wait a few months until my body gets back to normal and TTC again. Good luck to you in TTC.
courage it should be pretty difficult to have 2 m/c in such a short period. i think you should follow your doctors advice and allow your body to heal & pray because God alone can heal ur pain & give u another chance of ttc when u're ready.
sorry & courage. prayers to you
The big difference between miscarrying naturally and having a d&c is that your HCG levels return to 0 much faster with a D&C. When there are no complications, most Dr.s recommend waiting one cycle. Some will say longer..it really varies from Dr. to Dr. Mine has always said 1. I just had my 3rd D&C and there is no reason to believe conceiving again won't be easy.
I also conceived immediately following a natural miscarriage...no period in between either. That pregnancy is about to turn 1. I know other women who did this, and had no problems either. I asked my OB about it, and she said the primary reason for waiting is for dating purposes. There is no scientific data that you are more fertile after a miscarriage, or that you are more likely to lose a pregnancy immediately following a miscarriage. In complication free, first trimester loss, your body bounces back very quickly.
Sorry, to answer your question, I have typically ovulated about 3 weeks post d&c with my period coming about 2 weeks after that. However, for about 3 or so cycles I was a bit irregular. That's pretty normal.
