    Ovulation after Miscarriage/D&C
    An_256511 posted:
    I had a missed miscarriage the end of January and a D&C the beginning of February. Before my miscarriage I started my period between the 1st and 3rd of the month and ovulated between the 17th and 19th. We are trying to conceive again, but my cycle has changed. I got my period March 19th, and I've been doing ovulation tests since the 5th day of my cycle. I still haven't gotten a positive. Does my ovulation stay the same as before? Which would mean I get my period on the 19th, but still ovulated between the 17th and 19th? Or does it change with my new cycle, which means I should have had a positive by now? Maybe I'm not going to ovulate this cycle? I'm using First Response ovulation tests, and I'm hoping I just missed the LH surge, and I've already ovulated (unlikely) I started getting cramps last night that felt like period cramping, but I shouldn't get my period for 2 weeks. Maybe my body isn't back to normal after my miscarriage. Thanks for the help

    First of all sorry for your loss. You can expect to have different cycles after miscarriages. The cycle change should settle down after about 3 cycles. You can buy ovulation test strips which will help you to detect when your fertile period is.

    Hi An_256511,

    I'm sorry for the loss you have suffered. Miscarriages are probably the worst experience for a woman to go through. It is not only painful physically but more so emotionally. I can only hope that you have truly moved on from this experience, and that as time goes by the pain of the loss will lessen for you.

    With regards to your fertility, have you sought professional help for it? I think it would be easier if a health care professional can help you through it. You can also try out testkits that do not only determine your fertile periods but your overall fertility health. ZRT Labs' Female Profile II Blood Test Kit is your best bet for this. The test will help find out if you have developed any hormonal imbalances because of the miscarriage which to be addressed before you can try to conceive.

    I really hope you will have a successful try next time. Hoping for your good health. Best of luck!
