    So sorry for your loss. I had my mc in September. My first child. I was 6 1/2 weeks. I bleed for one good week at a steady flow. I then started my cycle 2 weeks later. It was a short cycle but I haven't had any problems. It has been just about 8 months and no luck. I'm trying to stay positive. Good luck to you.

    Thanks for your response. The dr was in a big hurry at the office since I wasn't a planned visit. I didn't have the thoughts or energy at the time to ask about my next period. Right now, he's worried about fibroid tumors only, not me getting pregnant again. I'm so sorry to hear that you have been trying for so long since your miscarriage. Not everyone gets how hard that is. Thanks again.
