i had a miscarriage 2 years ago and i wasn't psychologiacally ready to try again for quite a few months for fear of it happening again. but six months later i got pregnant and everything went fine and i now have a beautiful 9 month old girl :) as long as YOU feel ready to be pregnant, start trying. but be warned, my whole pregnancy i was soooo paranoid that something would happen i was a giant bundle of nerves. if the baby kicked too mych, or not enough, or i felt too sick or not sick enough i totally freaked out. so be prepared for that emotional ride.

Yes you can start trying again if you'd like. I had miscarriage in Oct. 08 followed by D&C early Nov. 08. I got pregnant again in Dec.08. Miscarried again in March 09 but didn't find out until April 09 and had D&C end of April 09. Got pregnant again in August 09 and am currently 32 weeks pregnant. Most doctors recommend waiting at least 3 cycles after a miscarriage. My husband and I were trying the first time to get pregnant, the other 2 times we were trying to be careful so I would not get pregnant to allow my body time to heal but got pregnant anyway despite us trying to use caution. Needless to say...our problem is not my ability to get pregnant but the ability to STAY pregnant. After the second miscarriage my doctor ran lots of tests and found a couple possibilities for why I might be miscarrying but I got pregnant before we could come to a final conclusion so she covered all her basis and we did preventative things for each possibility.

Nov.09 to now though should be fine its been about 5 months and you should be well in the clear if you want to start trying again.

after my mis we started trying the following month as per doctor's recommendations. It probably depends on the situation. I got pregnant about 10 months later. Took that long for me to get pregnant. Maybe the stress of grief or hormone imbalances? Anyway more space there than between my healthy pregnancies.

After my first miscarriage I got pregnant about 5 months later with my daughter. After my last miscarriage I got pregnant 2 months later. Both of my miscarriages were first trimester. I was told that I really only HAD to wait one menstral cycle. It took me a while to even start ovulating.

I lost a baby at 10 weeks in January of 2002, I concieved my son in Aug 2002 and everything was fine. I was told to wait 6 months before trying again, but I know different doctors have different ideas about weither you should wait and how long to wait.

Miscarriages really suck. I had two, one right after another. We didn't get pregnant again for about 3 years after the second miscarriage. It just wasn't in us. We were afraid of another loss. But then fall of 08 we did get pregnant and had a beautiful baby girl.

I miscarried in February of 2009, my doctor told me to wait 2 cycles before trying again, we waited 3 and started in May 2009 and I got pregnant with my son in September 2009
I know people who got pregnant right after.

I have been told and have read that if you have a miscarrage that you can probably start right away and have even heard about women becoming pregnant again just after 10 day. If you had a DC have have heard you need to wait till after 2 periods before starting to try again. I think you should be able to try again. I have a possible miscarrage (had a positive test then a negative one two days later) a few months ago and my Dr said we could try right away! Hope this helps!!

I had a miscarriage November of 08 and I am now 8 months pregnant. I really don't think your ability to get pregnant is affected by your previous loss. I have been told by my doctor that Miscarriages are just natures way of clearing out abnormalities and there is nothing you can do about them. It doesn't mean there is anything wrong with your body. I'm pretty sure you can try as soon as possible. Good luck
