I had an early miscarriage with my first pregnancy at like 7-8 weeks along. I didn’t get my period for about 3 months! Once I finally got my cycle back, I got pregnant with my daughter on the 3rd cycle after miscarriage. I hope you don’t have to wait very long for your rainbow! <3

I’ve heard the same thing as a couple of other people have written – that either you get pregnant again right away after a CP/miscarriage or it takes a while.

For me, I got pregnant the very first cycle of ttc (Jan 2019), then miscarried 5 days after finding out. I was only 5 weeks in and I was hopeful that I’d get pregnant again right away.

I got a period the next month, in February so that was a good sign. We kept trying in March and April when I noticed I had a short LP. Emailed my endocrinologist asking to have my thyroid tested and it was only at a 3 something but when TTC, most doctors recommend a TSH between 0-2.

My endocrinologist suggested we stop TTC in May until my TSH was lower. Got the go ahead to start trying in June, and got pregnant again right away. I’m currently 17w4d pregnant.

So all in all, it took 5 months after the CP to conceive again.

Have you had your Thyroid and vitamin D tested? From everything I’ve heard those are the most common reasons for having issues with TTC.

Good luck! <3

SeaOfLove :  I got pregnant the very next cycle after my CP. I ovulated two weeks to the day of my miscarriage. We weren’t even trying that cycle and I got pregnant again. Had another CP last week. So far, I’m 0/2, so we’ll see how October goes.

SeaOfLove :  I know I’ve mentioned this to you before, but I’m blown away that your doctor insisted you try for a year before ordering an SA, when there are known side effects from the medication. An SA takes about 5 minutes and costs like $200… I don’t understand the justification to wait that long. I know it worked out for you but if we are told the same thing we will find a new doctor…

I’m sorry for your loss. I had a chemical our first cycle trying after a miscarriage at 12 weeks. We got pregnant with our now 4-month-old on the third cycle after the chemical. <3

So sorry this has happened to you.

Both my sister in law and sister miscarried and then got pregnant again the next cycle.

lucyinsky :   SeaOfLove :  agreed. When we talked to my husband’s doctor about TTC we asked for a SA right off the bat to know what we were dealing with, and she agreed and sent him before we had even tried. If your husband is on something that can cause issues it seems crazy they wouldn’t let you test after a longer than what I assume is average time, even if it is still technically within the ‘average’ timeline.

I’ve been looking into this for similar reasons and st least around d and c the research seems to suggest that contrary to what people thought in the past people are more fertile on avalerage in the three months after ( or st least live births are more common from those pregnancies)
