Dating pregnancy right after miscarriage
I recently miscarried at 11 weeks and had an erpc a week later to remove some retained tissue.The nurse said to wait until after next period before trying again.For most women, that first period after a miscarriage will probably not be noticeably different from your normal period, but some women might have heavier or lighter bleeding than usual in the first cycle after the miscarriage. But if your period remains abnormal for multiple cycles, or if you're having severe pain or other concerns associated with your period, you should let your doctor know.Furthermore, if it has been longer than two or three months since your miscarriage and you haven't yet had a period, you should inform your doctor.This is because some doctors believe there is an increased risk of miscarriage if couples conceive too soon.Others believe that couples need time to grieve the previous loss.
Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy if you are, and sending lots of sticky baby dust your way ❤ I got pregnant right after my first miscarriage (I was 5wks) but I unfortunately lost that pregnancy at 10wks. I had a subchorionic hematoma that they believe was caused by not having implantation bleeding, and I believe that in the time between my 7wk dating ultrasound and 10wks it may have grown and as well I believe I have stress induced low progesterone.Maybe this information on the Miscarriage Association website might be some help. As for being mentally ready, I was terrified after my miscarriages. but im happy with that for this month, we cant not ttc incase we miss a chance, im nearly 39 and have 1 tube working so i dont have time to waste. i was advised to wait two months after an ERPC [hmmm] but took second and third opinions from others and there seemed no medical grounds to do so.Perhaps someone better informed will be along in a moment, but in my own experience (two miscarriages at 7-8 weeks) I've never got to the bottom of the reasons behind that advice, and can't help thinking perhaps there aren't any very convincing ones. Terrified of becoming pregnant, terrified of not becoming pregnant. sorry you are going through this purpleheather, i had a erpc on new years eve,(10wks) my gp advised us to leave ttc till i had my first af, she said this was beacause my cervix could be weakened by the procedure. I waited one month and conceived at the first attempt after that.Generally, depending on how far along you were in your pregnancy when you miscarried, you should get your first period after a miscarriage within six weeks.If you were further along, it might take longer for it to come back than if you were in early pregnancy when the loss happened.
By far, when you can expect your period to return is probably the most common question women have about physical recovery after a miscarriage, and the answer varies depending on the person.
