Life after miscarriage - when did you conceive again?

posted 1 decade 6 years ago
Hi everyone

I hope this posts finds you all well Very happy

I am about 3 weeks after my miscarriage now and thinking about trying for another baby. Docs say no reason not to and apparently now you don't even have to wait for your first period after (that's only for dating purposes we've been told).

So, what I'd like to know is how soon ladies who've had a miscarriage:
(a) starting trying for another baby and
(b) how long did it take you to fall pregnant

I guess I'm looking for a bit of reassurance as we all tend to do after suffering a miscarriage.

Hope to hear back from you.

Love to everyone

I had been trying for months when I lost my first pregnancy, but fell pregnant again immediately after that miscarriage. Four or five weeks. Its apparently quite common to fall quick after a miscarriage. Its like the body know what to do this time around? Good luck. K.x

ive not had a miscarriage, but i have friends who have and they've tended to try again in a few months

i think you should go with your instincts though - make sure you communicate with OH and do whats right for you both

just wanted to wish you luck xxx
