should i wait for results following recurrent miscarriage or try again?

currently my miscarriages are being investigated to see if there's a cause. i was told to wait for one cycle before trying again, i think my period is going to make an appearance due to my usual symptoms, our results won't be available for at least another 2 weeks.

i had a missed miscarriage at 8 weeks requiring an erpc, i later had a complete miscarriage - were unsure of the gestation, i then had a chemical pregnancy. fortunately the next cycle i conceived my son who is a beautiful healthy boy. whilst breastfeeding and my son was 6 months old i conceived my next baby. unfortunately at a scan at 11 weeks we found out i had a missed miscarriage, the baby dying at 9 weeks. i then had an erpc, this was 4 weeks ago.

would you wait to see the results? could it just be bad luck and i got pregnant too soon after my sons birth? i had hyperemsis during his pregnancy and it was a pretty rough experience, i was quite unwell. i don't know whether my bodies stores were depleted.

i desperately want to be pregnant again, i found this loss the hardest to go through.

any advice or anyone who has been in the same situation who is open to sharing their experience would be wonderful. its a very lonely thing

thank you so much for your reply. it is hard to come to terms with at first but please know that you will get there.
i'm in two minds, the advice is quite confusing. i'd love to be pregnant again soon but im also aware my body has been through so much. my husband wants to wait so i think i will have to take my time as he has struggled with this loss the most

i'll cross everything for you, we'll be happy soon!

Im so sorry to hear about your loss. I dont know what to tell you but would just like you to listen to your body and find out from your doctors what you can do. I hope you find an answer soon, it must be hard not knowing what to do next.
I had a recent miscarriage with my first but am still in shock. So for me it feels i should first recover physically and then emotionally.. pick myself up and be ready to try again and staying pisitive. Best of luck to you.
