    Question Will I ovulate straight away after m/c?

    I m/c on Saturday (at 5 and a half weeks) and DH and I would like to start TTC asap.

    Will I ovulate in 14 days? I am still bleeding now (I guess it is still from m/c or is it the same as AF?) Isn't your usual AF the same as what is happening now? Just removing the lining as it is not needed? If that is the case, I would expect that I would ovulate in 14 days.

    My hCG was 45 on Saturday and dr said that if I was still preggo it should be in the thousands. Does that mean that my hCG is returning to zero quickly and I should be able to release an egg soon??



    Why do some people say that you should wait a cycle? I am generally very fit and healthy - even gave up chocolate when TTC cause it has caffiene in it! And I exercise daily for 30-45 minutes. I was also taking folic acid since January, and went straight onto Balckmore Pregnancy and Breastfeeding 3 days after BFP (one day before AF would have been due).

    They don't know why I m/c. 1st bleeding came at 6.30am on Satursday and scan was done at about 11am that day and they couldn't see any sign of a preg. All other results from blood work were good.

    I also read on the net somewhere that you're more fertile, or more likely to fall immediately after a m/c? Any truth in that? Has anyone heard about that before?

    Please help!!! Thanks

    Firstly, sorry for your loss.

    As to whether you will ovulate - probably, but not a surety, depends on body signals.

    why do people wait - well everyone has different opinions - personally I wait a cycle, and waited 2 after my D &C with 2nd m/c to ensure the lining was ready and strong enough to hold a little bubba. You can fall preg straight away, but again, I think it depends on your body - and whether you are emotionally ready to try again.

    Re : being fertile - often it is said for 3 months after you are most fertile cos all new and shiny in there

    No-one can tell you what to do, you do what you feel is right.

    Good luck and hope your ttc is not lengthy!

    When we suffered our loss I had to wait a full cycle before I O'd again... So I suppose it depends.

    Thanks for your replies. We have decided to wait a cycle as our doctor has suggested. I would really like to TTC now, but I gues a month or two out of a whole life time is not long to wait, so if that's the safest option, I guess we should do that. Can't wait!!

    I don't really know. I know my miscarriage started on May 18 and ended on May 25 and it's now June 24 and I still have not had my AF visit me.

    Sorry for your loss.

    I've heard different doctors say different things about how long to wait after a miscarriage before trying again. The one cycle thing is almost purely for dating, it's easier to date a pregnancy if they know when your LMP was. I was also told 3 cycles and 6 cycles. Really, in my opinion, it's about your emotional health rather than your physical health (except when it's a late miscarriage). After my second miscarriage we decided not to wait and conceived immediately. My doctor didn't tell me off, and we dated the pregnancy by scan instead.

    ETA: Yes I think your hcg is probably returning to 0 quite quickly, 45 is already pretty low. As for ovulation, it's impossible to know when that will happen. After my first miscarriage I didn't ovulate for months (but it was a late miscarriage so this is unlikely to happen to you), after my second miscarriage (8 weeks) I ovulated a day or two after I finished bleeding. Google fertility and you'll find heaps of ways to know when you're ovulating.

    Exclamation

    Thought I would answer my own question, in case any one else out there was wondering. I have now had 2 MCs in a row. The first one at 5.5 weeks, the 2nd one at 4wks 2 days. From the first MC, I did ovulate just as if nothing had happened. Cycle was perfectly normal straight up. Since my 2nd MC, I am only on day 8, and my temps seem a little high, but I am feeling normal, and confident that seeing I was only just preg, my cycle will again be normal this month.

    Also after many people saying that you should wait a cycle (or more) for your body to get back to normal, I have been to see a fertility specialist and he said that there is no need to wait, it just depends how you are feeling emotionally.

    Hope this helps some of you out there.

    Good luck with TTC
