I miscarried last summer at 11 weeks. I felt it really took my body a while to regulate back to normal- like 6+months. Anyway, I got pregnant 10 months later and am now 10 weeks along. This was super long for me because my previous healthy pregnancies, and the miscarriage, were all conceived on the first try. But I am 39, so I’m not gonna lie to myself and say age couldn’t also be a factor in all this.

I’m sorry you’re going through this. My story is very similar. Short Story: MC’d after 12 cycles TTC. Conceived a (so far) healthy pregnancy 4th cycle post MC.

Longer Story: I found out I was pregnant on my 12th TTC cycle last October. It resulted in a MMC diagnosed at 8 weeks and D&C. It completely screwed with me mentally, I couldn’t comprehend the fact that we had to start trying again. We tried naturally for the first 3 cycles post-MC, then started testing on the 4th cycle. I had to push my doctor a bit to agree to testing, but after I explained to her that TTC/ the MC was starting to really effect my day-to-day life and I needed to be proactive, she agreed. Thankfully, we ended up pregnant that cycle we started testing, and I’m currently nearing the end of the second trimester. She says the 12 months TTC and MC were likely just really bad luck. I would push for testing if I were you (and clomid if you and your doctor agree). I really hope  you get a sticky BFP soon!

We waited for one cycle after the miscarriage (at doctor’s suggestion) and decided to try again that second cycle. Got pregnant again right away. So we conceived about 6 weeks after the miscarriage.

I’m fairly sure that a blighted ovum is a genentic abnormality with the embryo… a crappy luck of the natural draw.  Genetic abnormalities are the main cause for first trimester loses.  But since you did get pregnant, it would seem to indicate progesterone wasnt the issue imo.  Low progestone would not have caused a blighted ovum.   Clomid would help with shorter cycles and possibly better progesterone, but I would only take it monitored to make sure it doesnt screw with your lining too much and make it too thin.

So sorry for your loss. It’s extremely hard to miscarry. My first pregnancy also ended in a blighted ovum. I took 6 months off from trying. It then took me 7 months to get my BFP. Best of luck!

Soton85 :  I think it is really different for each person. After my first miscarriage, it took 9 months. That pregnancy also ended in MC, and it took me another 5 months to conceive my current pregnancy. It is an awful waiting game. Feel free to join the ladies on TTC after Miscarriage, they are angels and so supportive!

Soton85 :  Ovulating on CD22 is not really that late.  Assuming a 14 days luteal phase, your cycle would still be 36 days.  Anywhere from 28-35 days is considered “normal” so I dont think a 36 cycle would really raise any flags.  And if you’re consistant, that could just be your “normal”.  But glad to see that you are having a consult about it.  Hope you get some answers.

My cycles were never regular – I usually ovulated between cd18-24. Since I started charting at the start of our TTC journey, I had one cycle where I ovulated on cd30, and once on cd38.

We were trying for 8 months (but I only had six cycles in that time) when I got pregnant the first time.

After the D&C, I ovulated on cd23 and then went on to have the most painful, heavy period of my life. We were TTA that cycle. The next one we were ready to TTC, but it was a 40 day anovulatory cycle. The one after that I ovulated on cd14 (has never happened!) and what do you know, I’m pregnant.

I second the suggestion to pop over to the TTC after miscarriage board, they are a lovely bunch over there.

Sorry for your loss. It took me 3 months to get pregnant and I ended up MC and then after a month of waiting after d&c it took 4 more months to get pregnant again. I lost that one as well and had another d&c in January. We decided to take off a few months and we were going to have some testing done and start Ttc again in May, but I ended up getting pregnant in March and I am now 20 weeks. 

Good luck to you!!
