My husband & I just came off a cycle where we miscarried in January at 8 weeks, but my OB said there was no reason we couldn’t start trying right away (we’re newlyweds, both 30 years old & neither of us have children).
I have a very consistent 29 day cycle & am now on CD31 with no period, but pregnancy tests say negative. Is there still hope we could be pregnant? Based on my CM I’m almost positive I ovulated on CD16 which means I’d be 15DPO, but I can’t be sure. Any chance we could still be pregnant???

Have you had a period since your miscarriage? If not, then that explains it. Frequently after a MC, you’re cycles are a bit wonky/longer than usual. I’ve rarely heard of someone having a MC and then getting AF on the same schedule they usually do. Your body needs time to recover.

I had an early miscarriage in jan, just got my first period after, and my cycle was 4-5 days longer than usual. I read other people have had 6-8 weeks before getting it after miscarriage.
There’s always a chance that you could be pregnant, the only thing you can do is wait a few more days and test again.

sometimes things happen. i just finished cycle 4 of ttc. i am typically perfect 28 day cycles, one cycle i was 24 days.
this cycle, AF came today, 2 days late on CD30. don’t know why i was late but it happened. (and i had my hopes up too)

Like PP said, have you had a period since the actual MC? It took me a full 6 weeks for my period to show after my MC(I was also around 8-9 weeks)… but it also took my body a week for all the hcg to clear out of my system…
could you be pregnant? Sure… But I wouldn’t count in it unless you had a period after the MC

@lastlastfirst: I’m sorry for your loss. I agree with PPs – your cycle will take longer to regulate after a m/c as it takes a while for the HCG to fully leave your system. Typically, it will take longer if you naturally m/c than if you have a D&C.

Have I had my period since my miscarriage? I honestly have no idea. I’m in uncharted territory, feeling lost about what actually happened and when. I spotted for 3 weeks (during this time I found out we were pregnant, then found out days later that my hcg was dropping and things had stopped developing), nothing for days, then had what would have been a normal “period.” While I was still spotting my hcg had dropped below 5 so I’m assuming that the spotting was me miscarrying and I went on to have a period? Since CD1 of what I assume to be my period in early January the rest of my cycle has been just as always including the very day I ovulated. I understand it may take my body a while to get back to it’s regular cycle, but my OB seemed confident that I didn’t need to wait a few cycles after an early miscarriage like other OBs may recommend and that we could start TTC right away.

@lastlastfirst: Hi, sorry you had a mc. I’ve had two periods since my MC (at 10 weeks) and both cycles have been longer than my original 29 cycle. Also, I only Od one day late. Keep testing, because you never know, but I’d say it’s just a small change in your cycle length.
