I had a miscarriage in 2004 in August after fertility treatment, we gave up trying and waited for my next appointment in November, but was already pregnant when I saw them! Scans showed I fell pregnant in October. I've had two subsequent babies with no problems. Miscarriage is surprisingly common unfortunately, but doesn't mean you'll have problems in the future. Good luck.

I had a miscarriage June 2011. two months after i got pregnant again. my obgyn had told me to wait at least 6mths after the miscarriage to allow my body to heal. i still get very emotional in regards to my miscarriage. maybe that's something one will never get over. but i am very thankful for my beautiful daughters. i have a 7yr old and the 10mth old. we would still like to have a couple more.

I got PG a month after I was married in 2004. Then at 3 months I had a mc. I thought ...hey i got PG so quick after marriage so I should get PG again quickly. It didn't happen. I never go PG again after the one time. Sadly ): no kids, and every June I think about my miscarried child and think of how old it would be now.

I had a miscarriage in June of 2011. We got pregnant again in July and miscarried again, and then once more in October. 2011 wasn't a good year for me until the very end.
I got pregnant again in December of 2011 and gave birth to a healthy and hefty baby boy in September 2012.

I had a miscarriage when I was 17. I was at least 22 weeks, and they considered it a miscarriage (rather than a still birth) because they had not yet given me an ultrasound before the baby passed away, so assumed it had stopped growing a few weeks before I miscarried.
I had unexplained infertility for 10 years afterward. My husband and I spent 7 years TTC before I ended up having to see a Dr. and have fertility treatments. I got pregnant the first month. I had twins born at 30 weeks.
Because of the trauma of spending 8 1/2 weeks in the NICU with them, we waited until they were 20 months old before we started trying again. This time with no help at all, I was pregnant in a month.
Our twins are now 4 1/2, and the little one is 2. (We're done.)

Ideally you would wait at least 6 months after an early miscarriage to start trying again, to let your body get back into peak shape. (You wouldn't run a marathon a month after breaking your leg, right?) Being pregnant robs your body of valuable nutrients, and it takes some time to get those back into your body. It also messes with your hormones. Ideally you would allow your hormones to get back to a consistent level.
Not only does your body need time to heal, your mind does too. Losing a baby at any stage is traumatic, and you need to take the time to grieve the loss.

I had a miscarriage in September 2010. I should have been 8 weeks, but the baby was measuring 5-6 weeks. I had a D&E. We waited three cycles and tried again for six months before I got pregnant. I lost that one naturally around 5-6 weeks again. We waited two cycles to start trying and it took two months to get pregnant. That one stuck and we now have a nine month old. I had also tried an ovulation kit and found I wasn't ovulating when I thought I should. I had trouble conceiving my first child (took 9 months) which I'm guessing may be that I wasn't ovulating when I thought I would, although I never tested.

I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks but the baby was only 9 weeks so I hadn't had any symptoms up till then had to have a d&c and that was in May and then about a year later I was pregnant.

I had a stillbirth when I was exactly 6 months pregnant. 24 weeks. I got pregnant about a year later. I needed a year to grieve the loss of my daughter. I now have a healthy 5 year old daughter.

You should definitely get an ovulation kit. I had all the signs of ovulation on the 14-16th days of my cycle but when I did the test I was actually ovulating on the 20-22nd days! We had been trying for 6mths prior to the misscarriage and then tried in June after misscarriage in April. My missbcarriage was very straigforward and I didn't need to be scrapped out (D & C??) so I just left it one month after the misscarriage had finished beofre we started trying.
As soon as I got the Ov. kit and saw what day I ovulated, bang, I was pregnant. Then when we began trying for my second child. Bang, pregnant the first month of trying. I can't speak highly enough of an Ov kit.
P.S. - I also lay in bed with my legs inthe air for 10 mins after 'the deed' just to make sure all the swimmers stayed put for the longest time ;-).

I had one at 10 weeks by dates, but the pathology report said the baby was only at 5 weeks development so it had probably been dead for a while before I got sick enough to notice. It never did want to leave and the doctors had to scrape it out to keep me from getting sicker. The doctors told me to make sure I didn't get pregnant for at least 3 months because doing it before my body had a chance to heal would make me more likely to miscarry again. They also told me to not worry about fertility issues unless it took more than a year of actively trying to get pregnant again.
It took 8 years for me to get pregnant again, but that was mostly because my husband has a low sperm count and the smoking he was doing at the time made it worse. It took 4 1/2 years to get my second kid, but I think I was reading fertility signs wrong because I conceived her the first month I tried not to get pregnant. :)

I had a miscarriage in oct 2011 I was 6 weeks. I got pregnant well I was on birth control. I was not able to get pregnant. We finaly went to my ob/gyn and was put on clomid and finaly got pregnant a year after the miscarriage. But I have a friend who had a miscarriage then was able to get pregnant two months later. So It depends on the person

I got pregnant in February, lost the baby at 11 weeks in April and fell pregnant again in July (few year sback now). It wasn't until July that I bought an ovulation kit and discovered that Iwas ovulating a completely different time to when Ithought, so I suspec tI could have gotten pregnant in Jun if I had done that sooner. So not too long to wait I am sure.
