posted 9 years 3 days ago
Hi, Im back in the TTC forum having recently discovered we have suffered a missed miscarriage Sad

Its been a pretty tough few weeks but we are stronger than ever so hoping to get back to TTC soon.

ive had an m/c a couple of months before i fell pregnant with my daughter (who wasnt planned) so i couldnt really advise you about charts etc as i never did any of that.

they say when you given birth your at your most fertile for 6 months and doctors recommended to my mum to not try again for X ammount of weeks when she had m/c's but the doctors never advised me of any of that and if they did i was too distraught to take it in.

unless someone else here can give you better advise id recommend speaking to your gp and seeing what they advise you to do.

I'm really sorry to hear that! I hope things work out just fine this time. You should talk to your doc. I'd, however, like to further advise to see an expert instead. Doc may not be able to tell you all. Expert's opinion may give you more info about your last MCs and that how you should get around being successful this time. Best of luck!

Hello Jbrad, how do you do? Welcome here. I wish you can be helped in any possible way. Did you consulted any doctor? what did they diagnose? I wonder why did you even stopped TTC? You can do it as many times as you want. If your TTC isn’t working since a long time then what are you waiting for? You must go for infertility treatments. IVF will suit you the best. IUI is also the option. Please step towards the treatments. You must not lose your hope. My prayers are with you. I wish you all the best. Take good care of your diet and health.

Hi Dear,
I know losing pregnancy could be frustrating and stressful. However, you need to remember that you are not the only one. It happens to one person out of five pregnant women you see. Typically, most pregnancies get miscarried in the first three months. There are much more that happens in the second and the third trimester. So, you need to remain strong and move on. After all, there are cases where miscarriage takes place just to remove a deformed fetus. You can imagine what would happen if you carried the pregnancy only to spend most of your time in a good facility. It would be stressful, isn’t it? So God has a purpose for everything. All you can do now is to continue praying and forge on. Also, I would like to bring tour attention the fact that 15 % of women who are under 35 years miscarry. This rate increases as the woman reach 45 years and become prevalent once she hits 50. So take heart my dear and embark on TTC. The good thing is that you can conceive 2 months after you miscarry. However, this should be discouraged because the body has not yet recovered. It takes 3- 4 months for a human body to recover fully. After 4 months, it is ready to conceive and carry the pregnancy to full term. So all that you can do at this moment is to focus on a balanced diet and exercise. However, don’t over exercise because it can impact negatively on your plans.

Hello jbrad
Although no one can predict how your body will behave, it is my opinion that you should have waited before you started TTC. Normally, a miscarriage leaves one feeling too low. No wonder that some people will embark on TTC almost immediately just to fill the void. It is also one of the ways that women use to help cope with the situation. It is true that there is no right time for TTC and that it is always a personal decision. However, there are a few things that scientists agree on. First, you must be emotionally ready to carry a baby. Healthcare providers’ advice that you wait till you regain your menstrual cycle. However, each doctor will base their advice on your unique situation. According to one of the research published in the medical journal, it was found that conceiving within six months after miscarrying offers the best chance of pregnancy. This study compared women who conceived within six months and found that they had the best reproductive outcome and reduced rate of complications. They argue that six months is enough time to help the body recover. Typically, women who miscarry a chemical pregnancy may take as little as two weeks to ovulate. However, if they miscarry later in pregnancy, it may take a little longer for the menstrual cycle to return to normal. To help you initiate your chances of healthy pregnancy, it is important that you stop smoking or taking alcohol and reduce the amount of caffeine you intake. It is also advisable to have plenty of rest.

Hi Dear,
I agree with you that you really do not have to waste time if you have miscarried. However, you need to give your body some adequate time to help it heal. According to a new study, the sooner a woman conceives, the better are the chances of having a healthy pregnancy. However, the study points out that six months is the most appropriate time if a woman wants to avoid pregnancy-related complications. Such women must be able to feel that they are physically and mentally ready for the pregnancy. This brings us to the question that seeks an answer to how long should she wait before she attempts conceiving? WHO recommends that a woman should wait for six months after a miscarriage before she tries to conceive again? Women who wait for more than two years before they try to conceive have a higher chance of ectopic pregnancy. If they carry the pregnancy to full term, they are more likely to deliver via cesarean section. Also, they run higher chances of giving birth to low birthweight or premature children. However, women who show signs of infections may be required to wait longer before they embark on TTC because of obvious reasons.
Notice that the age factor is another critical aspect that should help one determine whether to conceive immediately after a miscarriage or not. Older women have increased the risk of miscarrying when they conceive. Similarly, studies show that it is difficult for older women to conceive. So waiting for more time to lapse after miscarriage just pushes you to the riskier age limit.

It's very sad that you are going through from difficult situation in your life. I think you must go for infertility treatments because infertility can cause serious problems like stress and Tension. Surrogacy is the best process for you in this situation . Consult your doctor for further treatments. You must not lose your hope, It's part of life. You have to face the realities of life. I am totally agree with your point that you are wasting your time while trying. I faced the same issue but i am lucky i find a clinic which suites me. And now i am under the treatment. I have done with my first visit. After my first visit i find many good things about them. You must need to give your body some adequate time to help it heal. I think it's best time for you to choose this process.
