How soon after a miscarriage is OK to start TTC again? And are you at a greater risk of another miscarriage the sooner you start TTC after after a Mc? Me and my fiance lost a baby a little over 2 weeks ago at 9 weeks (the baby measured 7.4 weeks but I was supposed to be 9 weeks). We want to try again but not too soon.

My midwife advised us to wait one cycle before trying again and then we were ok to start trying whenever we felt ready. It took us 7 months after that to conceive the baby we are pregnant with now. Sorry for your loss.

ETA: I miscarried at 7w2d and passed everything naturally and didn't to have a D&C.

We lost our first baby on Feb 2, 2006 and found out on April 15, 2006 that we were pregnant with our oldest daughter. Our doctor told us to start trying again after my first regular cycle. You may ask your doctor to see what they suggest.

Quoting Just Ames:" You can try immediately and if you get pregnant right away your chance of miscarriage is not higher. ... [snip!] ... back on BC for a month. Anyway, I miscarried in Dec and got pregnant late April. Best of luck and I'm sorry for your loss."

really sorry for you loss and everyone elses.. OP, I tried anyway after my m/c in July and I'm going on month 5 of trying to get pregnant.

Sorry about your loss :(

What did your Dr. suggest you do?

I had my m/c at 7 1/2 weeks and they told me to wait to start trying after I got af. I m/c that Sept. and got af in Oct. We started trying again after that and got pregnant in Dec. with my son.

Lots of sticky baby dust for when you guys decide to start trying again.
