Readers Respond: How Long Have You Been Trying to Get Pregnant After Miscarriage?

Updated December 07, 2009

Not sure what to think

April 22ND I miscarried with my first pregnancy. I am 31 years old. It really hurts to have waited so long for my angel and then miscarry. I went to the doctor today and she asked if I wanted birth control. I stated no, she said that I needed to wait for 2 cycles. I hear what she is saying, but I have never been the person to be able to get pregnant at the drop of a dime. So I really don't want to interfere with ovulation with birth control.

Still trying

I got pregnant my second month trying--it was such a relief because all my friends had gone through infertility problems for years before they were able to have kids. But then I miscarried after two months last September. My husband and I have been trying ever since--just started OPK two months ago but just got my period. It's really disheartening. I witnessed what my friends had gone through and I hope I won't have to go down that road.


We lost our baby at 18 weeks, gave birth and we were both devestated. Our baby died because he became wrapped up in his umbilical cord. That was in Feb 2010. I have been having periods regular as clockwork, but have been doing ovulation tests and I don't think I'm ovulating. I don't know why and don't know where to find information from. We both have faith that we will have a baby, we are both praying that we will be blessed soon. I am praying for us all.

Hi everyone, am another broken heart. I was 8 weeks on 09/30/2009 when I miscarried my first pg, ever since my first period I have been desperately trying.

I find this a good way to deal with my grieving process. Baby dust to you all.

Still trying....

My husband and I started trying in June of 09 and were pregnant the next month. Suddenly, I am sitting in an office to a doctor tell me that they can't find a heart beat. I had a what they call a "missed miscarriage" Sept 09 at 12 weeks. The doctor said that the heart beat stopped at around 9 or 10 weeks. It was probably one of the hardest moments in my life. I was told that I had to wait 2 months before trying again and then received a call stating that I had to go in for more tests because I had a partial molar pregnancy. Thank God the tests were normal, but it's April 2010 and we are still trying....

Where's the stork with my baby?

I lost a baby june 2008 at 4 months. They gave me a dnc. Ever since then I have not been able. It's been almost 3 years and nothing. I can't understand why and me and my fiance want a baby so bad. I hope it happens soon. I wish you all luck.

Still trying

My husband and I found out we were expecting just after we got married in Nov 09 - went for a scan in Jan to be told it was either only 5 weeks old (we should be 9) or it died at 5 weeks and it was still in there. Bloody doctors waiting list - 2 weeks later to see the dr but miscarried before our appointment! It's been 13 weeks now since we lost the baby, and I still haven't had a period and HPTs are all neg! Went to the dr - she tells me 'that's strange' - does a few tests including blood test etc - and says to me if I still haven't had a period in a month to go back! I did have a slight brown mucous stain when I wiped after going to the toilet last week, for a few days and apparently that was a light period! WTF!! So I am nowhere with our baby plans and hubby and I are so desperate to have one of our own! :(

No way to tell

I didn't even think I started ovulating again. I felt like my cycles were all messed up. For months I didn't have periods, was really worried that I couldn't get pregnant at all. I wasn't trying to get pregnant, and it turns out that I had what I thought was a period, after I got pregnant. I don't know what to think now. I guess I should be prepared for anything at this point.

My husband and I miscarried 4 years ago and still no luck but we are seeing a specialist. I don't see any shame in this as we do need the help. My husband did a semen test which was normal, I had a hysterosalpingogram which was normal and still nothing. I'm 26 and my husband is 35 but fingers crossed for everyone out there, you are not alone, baby dust to you all x x

I had a missed miscarriage at 11 weeks Sep 09 - been trying since with no luck. Just passed my due date which was kind of hard. Everything tells you not to stress about ttc but it's hard not to - fingers crossed for next month - good luck to all here!

3 months and waiting

I lost my baby at 7 weeks on 13th Jan 2010, and we've been trying ever since. I had PCO when I was 18 and they popped, but I never thought it would be a problem. Now I'm terrified it will never happen naturally. But fingers crossed this month's it [lots of symtoms]. =] Baby dust to all.

Trying to conceive after miscarriage

I was 11 weeks when I lost my baby Dec 09. The doctor said to wait 2 months and try again. It is now three months later and nothing has happened. It is very frustrating, but I am praying and will keep trying. Good luck to everyone.

TTC #1 after miscarriage for 6 months

I had a miscarriage Aug 2009 (first pregnancy) at 9 weeks. We waited one cycle and have been trying now for 6 months. The due date was yesterday. I take strength from knowing we are all dealing with the same pain and that more than likely, for each one of us, our day will come.
