Pregnancy after miscarriage

Hi,

I had a miscarriage and three weeks ago had a D & C. I have had sex with my husband once since then. I have a few questions. Can I get pregnant and if I do does it have a higher risk of miscarriage since I have not had a period yet. All the information is so confusing and conflicting. When would a HPT be accurate since I have no idea when my period would be due?

I am so sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I had one in December and also had  D&C. It can be so confusing going through it. It feels like my body will never get back to normal. My doctor said that we could start trying as soon as I have a normal period again. It took about a month for my period to come after the bleeding from the D&C stopped (that was Jan.22). I had an ultrasound to make sure that everything was functioning correctly. The confusing thing is that I haven't had another period since. I have taken HPT but they came back negative. I am not sure what is going on and am planning on talking to my doctor next week if I don't start.
My advice to you is to talk with your doctor or nurse, but be patient with your body. It takes a little bit for it to get back to normal. Also the ultrasound technician did say that you are a higher risk of another miscarriage if you become pregnant before you first period. I hope this info is helpful and not more confusing or frustrating. Please know that you are not alone!!! Let us know how things progress for you!
Good Luck! - Jessica

Hi, I had a m/c & d&C in july and I know that it took me 5 weeks until I had my period... It hurt really badly, I had awful cramps... I just laid on the bed crying b/c it hurt so bad. I just wanted to warn u b/c I thought that there was something wrong with me, and when I called the doctor he said that sometimes ur first period after a m/c is more intense than normal. I was so mad that they did not tell me that b4 I had to go through it. Just make sure that have a heating pad, midol, and whatever else u need for it on hand just incase.

Me and my hubby thought that I was preggo again after a few weeks but it turned out that it was just left over hormones from the last baby.

But on a better note I am pregnant again!!! 21weeks along now with a very healthy little boy! After my first real cycle, it took us 2 months to concive, and it was when we stopped trying... we only b/d once that month b/c i had a really bad cold!

just give u and ur body time to heal and everything will be okay!! Good luck

I had a misscarriage last Thursday, I was almost 7 weeks pregnant and this past Monday I stopped bleeding. Is it safe to have sex now?  For some reason, I am very anxious to get pregnant again.  If I were to get pregnant before starting a new cycle will it be bad???
Thanks for your answers.

Well, I should have been 8 weeks pregnant today but recently found out that I have had a missed miscarraige (miscarriage). This is were the pregnancy ends before you might realise something is wrong. Apparently the pregnancy stopped developing at around 5 weeks and I am only now loosing blood and clots.  Ive had two lots of blood tests now, the second lot of results should have doubled in the space of two days to have been a good sign, but my 2nd result was lower which confirmed that I was miscarrying.  It has been a traumatic experience for both me and my partner, but all we want to do now is to look ahead and hope that our next pregnancy goes well.

On March 7 i found out i was pregnant...on March 24 i started bleeding...went in for a u/s and a blood hcg test...uterus was thick but no sack...i miscarried...levels still havent gone down all the way...on April 3 i went in and my levels were at 36 and then went on april 10th and they were only at 18. SO i went again on april 13th and theyve rose to 19. Only one point. I am going in the morning to have an ultra sound to check for eptopic. Im not having any pains..im nauseas tired and my boobs are aching like b4 but no abdominal pain, has anyone experienced this before? I took a pregnance test2 days after the results were 36 and it was negative, i took it another one again after the 18 and the 19 and it was positive. Is it possible that i am pregnant again? But if i am is it okay for them to be rising so slowly?

I had a miscarriage the day before easter. I was suppose to be five weeks pregnant. When they took a PT at the hospital it cam back negative so they had to take a blood test to confirm the pregnancy. My HCG levels should have been over 1000 but were only 50, then a couple of days later my when I had to go back they were at 10. The litlle symptoms I had were a ready gone. The acne and breast tenderness. I boyfriend and started having UPS again not even a week after my miscarriage. Now I am starting to have my pregnancy sypmtoms again the acne and breast tenderness. I think I may be pregnant once again but I am afraid of another miscarraige (miscarriage). I had one miscarriage before then I had a son, this was my second miscarriage and I had and still having a hard time coping. I do hope I am pregnant again, but it this truly possible for me to be pregnant so soon after my miscarriage.

Like the rest of you, I had a miscarriage today at 1 day shy of 13 weeks.  I had a subchorionic bleed from 7.5 weeks.  I was told not to worry about it, but I still stopped all exercise and lifting anything heavy (and pelvic rest).  This morning, I had some cramps, went to the bathroom and passed huge amounts of blood and clots.  It kept coming.  I was a mess because I knew I it was a m/c.  I went to my doc's office and bleed all over the place.  Ending up in the ER to get an emergency D&C operation.  What a horrible day.  I am screaming and crying.  I don't think I have ever cried so hard.
