I meant wait 2 or 3 cycles to try and conceive again, but some docs say if you miscarried on ur own without the need to have a d/c then u really don't have to wait at all.  Mine said to so I'm going to waita little bit.  I was 11 wweeks when I miscarried though.  As far as getting ur grove back on,  he just told me to wait until I stopped bleeding and then wait an extra day or two because it may be a bit tender.  He told us to use condoms for awhile but we've been using the pull out method.

And if this was ur first m/c, then ur chances of having another one are that of any other woman.  Not likely but possible.
