Had a miscarriage and trying to have another baby

I started to miscarry at the end of June 2009 and then there was complications so we ended up having to do a D & C July 10. I didn't get my first period until September 7 and it lasted for a week. I haven't had a menstrual cycle since then. I've taken numberous pregnancy tests and they were all negative. Did anyone else have this same problem and have any solutions because my husband and I have been trying to have another baby. Plus, I'm not sure if I should be worried because there might be something wrong with me know.

You need to go see your doctor. I have had 4 miscarriages and never have I gone that long with out a period after one. I would just go in and have everything checked to make sure everything is ok.

i had a misscariage and d&c and got pregnant again before it was time for my period again, i've also had one without a d&c and i got my period again like a month and a half later after the miscarriage bleeding stopped. you should go to the doctor and see if there is anything wrong.

i had a miscarriage and needed to do a dnc in mid july of 08... i bled for three weeks after, and i got pregnant right away in september... everyone's body is different... it takes a while for your body to get back to normal, and it takes some longer than others. don't give up, if you have concerns just ask your doctor, i called and called and called, but i figured it was better to know what was happening with my body than not.

give your body the cance to get back to normal after having the miscarriage. defenatly keep trying to have another baby but just be careful. your body is trying to figure out what has happened and is trying to get things taken care of. nothing is wrong with you just give it time and keep trying, there is nothing wrong with just trying to get pregnant after a miscarriage. just take the time and let your body tell you when its ready. it does take a while for your body to "calm" down after a miscarriage, just stay strong and keep your head up.
