FIrstly, I'm very sorry about your loss. My thoughts go out to you and your dh.... I had a d&c in May 2009. We started trying as soon as I was able which was 3/4days later as my SIL told me that she got pg after a mc/d&c straight away without getting AF. I got my AF 3/4weeks later, I used the OPK's, ovulated at the same time as I always did and got a BFP 7wks after d&c. I went on to have a healthy ds in Mar 2010. When I mc'd all I wanted was to be pg again as soon as and I was lucky it worked out for me. It's all down to when you are ready to start trying again but I was told that physically our bodies are able to start trying asap. Hope this helps....

So sorry to hear your sad news. I waited for 2 cycles after my D&C last August, my 2nd m/c, just to give myself a chance physically and emotionally, and got BFP that month. After 1st m/c I just waited 1 cycle and got BFP straight away. Think its a very personal decision. There doesnt seem to be any concrete evidence either way. Take care of yourself anyway. Best of luck for the future. :action32

Hi Harbour really sorry to hear your sad news. Its very hard to hear at that stage when you think all is going well. I had a d&c in September, we waited for af to return around 5 weeks later and tried that month and luckily we got pg. As the others said it is very personal decision. For me it helped me through everything to start trying again as soon as I could. best of luck pet :action32

Hi Harbour, Sorry to hear your news. I went through the same in July. Seen a heartbeat and all at 9/10 weeks and went for 12 week scan and no heart beat and no reason given either. Its very disheartening but we tried again straight away (while on a break to get away from it all)! Im 25 weeks now and still so so nervous havent bought anything yet but it does make it easier when u get to certain stages of the pregnancy..feel free to pm if you want
