Told to wait after a chemical pregnancy…?

They usually give that advice to ensure your uterus has had a chance to recover and the lining is healthy enough to carry a baby to term. 

That being said, we had a MC and conceived the next cycle – I’m 36 weeks now. 

However, I was only 4w3d, and wasn’t that far along. My body didn’t have much to recover from. If I didn’t test early I probably wouldn’t have known I was pregnant.

They told me the same but I don’t think I listened…

I think as pp said it’s so the uterus has a chance to recover. I had a mc at 6 weeks so there wasn’t a whole lot going on yet.

I was also advised to wait and like MsPlucky, we conceived on the next cycle and I’m almost 30 weeks now.

I’m sorry again about your CP bee. I was also told to wait a cycle after I miscarried at 6.5 weeks. We disobeyed. I strongly suspect I had a really early CP on this first cycle after the MC (squinters on multiple tests starting around 12dpo that didn’t progress, then AF arrived), but whatever, I still don’t regret jumping back in. I’m not wired to sit around waiting patiently for this sort of thing, lol. It’s ultimately a decision you & your husband will have to make, but just so you know there are plenty of doctors out there who would tell you there’s no need to wait. The advice on this seems pretty arbitrary. I’ve even heard of doctors telling women who had a D&C after miscarrying at 10 or 11 weeks that they can try again immediately.

I typed up a long response but lost it. In short, I’ve had two chemicals and a loss at 9 weeks. I was given the clear to keep trying tight after each one. There was never a waiting period.

I also had a CP on my first cycle of TTC.  The doctor did not tell me I needed to wait to try again but I can say that my following cycle was off so it took a little bit for my body to regulate.

My OB also tell me there is no need to wait. But I did have an USG to see if my uterus is clean though.

I was 6 weeks with my loss and my doctor said I could try again straight away. I had an ultrasound to check everything was in order. Got pregnant on the next cycle and am currently 7 weeks.

Sometimes they tell you to wait just so that they can calculate your due date based on the first day of your last period. They can figure it out in other ways… so if you want to go for it, just do it IMO.

We were encouraged by our midwives to go for it immediately following our CP last summer! Do what feels right to you two.
