Pregnant immediately after miscarriage ?

User Profile
I've had a miscarriage at 5 weeks and a D/C on 18 Feb 2009. I think I ovulated around the 4/03 if I go according to my cervical mucus. What are the chances of me falling pregnant immediately after a miscarriage? I took a home pregnancy test a week after the D/C to check that all the HcG hormones are gone and it came back negative.So we started trying when I thought the "time" was rigth. I did another test last Thursday 12/03 and it was negative but I think I bought the wrong test ... When can I take another test? Lately i am very tired and sleepy and experiencing some nausea (don't know if its wishful thinking or what :)) And then I want to know : I am not happy with the way my current gynea handled the miscarriage and the fact that he didnt give me any advice afterwards. I have to go for a check-up this Thursday 19/03, should I find myself a new gynea now and go to him/her or should I go to current gynea who did the D/C for check-up and find another gynea when I find out I'm pregnant?

Conceiving after miscarriage is possible as soon as the female sex hormones turn back to normal. The most secure sign for this is the menstrual period. Once it appears, the chances for conceiving significantly rise. How long will it take for the regular menstrual period to appear after miscarriage is different in every woman and no definite period length can be given.
