    Just lost a baby on June 27th. Had a DNC done on the 28th. So now we want to try again. So how soon can we start?

    I know my doctor told me no intercourse for two weeks after a D&C but beyond that we could start trying again right away. Another doctor told us to wait 2-3 months after a miscarriage but the doctor that actually did the D&C said we could try right away (after the 2 weeks). I was really glad to hear that. Hope all goes well for you!

    My DH and I lost a baby January 8 and started trying as soon as I was healed up. I waited and waited for a period, it took me literally until April 21 for my period to return!!! Lucky me we found out we were pregnant again June 13! Keep your head up. Its a sad time, but eventually things will be okay! GOOD LUCK!!!!

    I also had a D&C done a few years ago. My doctor told me 6 weeks but I waited about 2-3 months to be emotionally healed.
