How soon after measles immunization should I try to concieve

User Profile
Hi,

My partner and I had a recent misccariage in November and in January we thought we would try again but before we started trying i thought i should get a blood test to makesure i was 100% healthy to have a baby, i found out that i needed the measles vaccination, as it should i wasnt immune to the measles, my doctor advised i should wait 2 cycles before we try to conceive. The day i got my vaccination i started my period. My question is does this count as the 1st cycle? i am due for my next period next week. After my period next week can we try conceiving again??

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Do not haste. Since your periods coincided with your vaccination date, consider waiting for next 2 menstrual cycles and then begin your pregnancy plans. In the meantime consider taking pre-natal vitamins, Folic acid and Vit-B12 supplements. For further clarification and assistance, visit your doctor/gynecologist. Look out for development of any new symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
