As a woman, there is quite possible nothing more distressing than losing a child to a miscarriage. Generally, most couples will be too distressed to even think about trying for another baby just after they have lost one but others will want to compensate for the loss and try for another straight away. Many people worry that it is not possible to get pregnant just a week after having a miscarriage but this is simply not true, the human body is extremely resilient and pretty much anytime that you have sex with your partner there is a chance that you could get pregnant. However, many doctors will advise you that you really should not be having sex with your partner so soon after having a miscarriage as you can actually cause damage to yourself. It is really advisable to wait a little while to try for another baby, not only to get over the grief but also to allow your body to recuperate after the trauma that it has endured. Also, the HCG levels in your body after miscarriages are generally increased and this means that you cannot ovulate so it obviously means that you are less likely to get pregnant. This is not the case for everyone but in most cases the HCG levels will be above zero, and that means that ovulation is not possible. Obviously, every woman’s body is slightly different so essentially anything is possible but it is better to wait around four to six weeks before trying again.

I had a miscarriage at the end of november at about 7 weeks along. I had an ultrasound the day after the cycle (bleeding) had stopped that showed me that everything was cleaned out. My fiance and I had sex the following day. I found out on jan 10th that I am pragnant and the doctor thinks about 8 weeks, So I pretty much got pregnant again right off the bat. I think I'm a week behind what he says he just used one of  those date wheels to determine how far along I am. But I know that as of Nov 29 I was no longer pregnant so the dates only match to be 7 weeks along not into the eighth or ninth like the pregnancy book states. So yes it is possible so get pregnant quickly after a miscarriage, extremely quick in our case. This will be my 3rd pregnancy (had 2 miscarriages) but this one feels so different eg. Lots of nausea, so everyone keeps telling me thats a good sign of this one pulling through.
So for those of you that posted I just wanted to say I'm sorry for your losses I know exactly what youre going through and also good luck and prayers on getting pregnant and healthy babies!

You definately can! It happened to me. I m/c oct 23rd to the exact date... 5 days of bleeding...I didnt even know I was pregnant, I had been about 7 to 8 weeks at the least.  The second week in November I had every pregnancy symptom; nausea, frequent urination, breast tenderness, mood swings... I took a test a week ago- I am pregnant about 5 1/2-6weeks as of today (12/5/09)! I was shocked, didnt think it could happen so soon!  but it can, and there is nothing wrong with trying right after m/c, although I would recommend time to heal emotionally because it is such a sad loss and is so heartbreaking!  Hang in there & Good Luck!

Sometimes the heartbeat will stop for hours, or even days... It sometimes can resume again spontaneously.
Don't have D&C unless you have signs of your body trying to 'get rid' of the fetus. I had a friend who'se doc told her there was no heartbeat and the fetus was dead. She opted to carry the 'dead' fetus for 2 weeks before going back to the doctor... She was scared of the  D&C procedure... When she went back and they did another ultrasound lo and behold a strong heartbeat and a healthy fetus.
No idea if the first time the doc wasn't looking hard enough, or if the heart did actually stop beating and then resume again. We will never really know. But don't be too hasty when making those kind of decisions... Your body knows how to take care of itself and your offspring.. I wouldn't D&C unless I was having other signs of miscarriage.. Don't take docs words for truths.. They are ALWAYS an opinion.. There are no absolutes in this life.

It doesn't seem dumb at all. We started to try to get pregnant a little before we got married. And wouldn't you know it, we did. I started my miscarriage on our wedding day though! It has been a crazy month. We started having unprotected sex soon after I stopped bleeding. It has been almost a month now, and I am feeling achy, tired, and nauseous. Don't know if I am showing symptoms, or if it is the flu or wishful thinking!

I have just had a miscarriage 2weeks ago and as soon as the bleeding stopped on the 3rd day, We begun to try again. I am 44yrs not much time to waste. This was a completely out of the Heavens for us, we were not at all expecting to get pregnant. It was my very first pregnancy after 14yrs of marriage. So now I know I can get pregnant I am trusting God for a full term pregnancy and a healthy baby and that it happen now. God bless you in your efforts to conceive also.

Definately!!!!! After mi scarring a baby you can get pregnant again straight away after having
unprotected sex. Ive lost a baby 3 months ago. Doctor said wait to you get a normal period and
try again on the next month, providing that its ok with the doctor if you have had any problems.
Good luck chick!!! Its so horrible losing a baby, but you will have another baby again xx-xx

I just delivered my baby on st patricks through a d&c. I was 13 wks that day but my baby had passed about 1 1/2 weeks prior according to my dr. I had no cramping, bleeding, nothing. It was an accident I even  found out. The nurse at one apt put the wrong due date in the computer and when I corrected my dr at the next appointment  I asked for an ultra sound to be sure of the date, n he no longer found a heart beat. I bled for about 2 days after the surgery and haven't had a regular period yet. But I want to give my husband a baby more than anything in this whole world. Even if it kills me this time.

Initially, her tale does not appear believable. She are not able to take a scan and be optimistic and abruptly take an different scan a couple of days later and be bad. It might need to be a minimum of every week or so earlier than that. It takes a even as for the frame to get trip of the entire hormones that had been developed up even as pregnancy. Nonetheless, it is vitally so much so feasible to have a miscarriage at a million week. I had a buddy who had a miscarriage and she or he had no inspiration she was once even pregnant. She was once having belly cramps so she determined to take a seat on the bathroom for awhile and abruptly some thing simply plopped down into the bathroom bow and that i even noticed it. It was once beautiful frightening. However yeah. Desire this is helping. I simply feel that you simply must nonetheless take your buddy's tale such as you might for those who thoroughly believed it on account that if it does end up real you would turn out to be announcing some thing or doing some thing you can remorse if that is all simply her being dramatic. I recommend you Ovulation Calculator through this you get instant of knowledge about Ovulation .

I had a miscarriage about a month and a half ago. I am now having the symptoms of someone four weeks pregnant. That would mean I got pregnant right away after I miscarried. I am nervous and scared. Wheather I am pregnant again or it's all in my head, or leftovers from the miscarriage, I just don't want to have to go through one again ...thank you for all your stories.  They were very helpful .

You can get pregnant when your normal menstrual cycle begins and enters the ovulation stage. That stage starts after 14 days if you have a 28 day cycle.But it usually takes around 4 to 6 week to get pregnant if the miscarriage occurred during the early stages of your pregnancy. So there is very little possibility of you getting pregnant again right now. You can get pregnant after 2 week (minimum) to 6 weeks (maximum).

I got pregnant 3 days after my miscarriage and I was only 6-7 weeks, I was having twins. One was a week older than the other. And after my miscarriage, 3 days later I got pregnant with twins again only I lost one but the other one was just fine.
