A lot of first time mothers miscarry and a good portion of pregnancies miscarry before the end of the first trimester.  As far as your fertility, I wouldn’t worry about the DNC affecting your ability to get pregnant and if you’re concerned about getting pregnant right away, there are methods to identify the window of opportunity.  Check out Taking Charge of Your Fertility.  It has a lot of good information!

It’s a great book.  It really helped me identify some disconcerting symptoms that I have.  It’s such a valuable resource, I think all women should read it because it educates and informs.

Definitely read up on it; i think you have nothing to be concerned about yet. A D&C has no affect on your ability to get pregnant down the road whatsoever.  Many women have miscarriages and carry healthy babies to term.

Miscarriages are incredibly common. Anywhere from 10-25% of clinically recognized pregnancies end in miscarriage (meaning that the women who miscarry before they realize they are pregnant are not counted – which is also fairly common). I know it is something you will worry about, but please remember that your pregnancy is only one data point – you don’t have anything else to go from when you are worrying about whether it will happen again. So, you don’t actually know what your body is capable of. It could have been a really freak thing, and your body obviously knew what was best – that particular pregnancy wasn’t viable, so it miscarried.

For example, my mother had one healthy baby, then 2 miscarriages, then me (healthy!). It happens to most women. I’m sure it’ll all be fine!
