Problem Conceiving After Miscarriage

I have two boys and have been pregnant 4 times. Each time I got pregnant, I conceived the first month with no problem. In March, when I was 4 months pregnant, we found out the baby's heartbeat had stopped. I was induced and had to deliver. I had a very minor D&C after the delivery to remove a small amount of remaining tissue. After waiting 3 months, we are trying once again. The only problem is, I am not getting pregnant so easily this time. Has anybody had a similar experience after having a second trimester miscarriage?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You need have to wait.This is physiological check not to ovulate soon after a mishap.So,this is not surprising that you are not getting pregnant.I suggest you to wait three months more and then try to conceive.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

I'm sorry to hear about your mc..Such a heartbreaking experience..
Unfortunately, there are many reasons why a miscarriage may happen. Although the cause is often not identified. If a miscarriage happens during the 1st trimester of pregnancy, it's usually caused by problems with the foetus. About 3 in every 4 miscarriages happen during this period..This statistics is very sad indeed, our tiny beans face the hugest issues during this very period of time.
First trimester miscarriages are often caused by problems with the chromosomes of the foetus. Chromosome problems - Chromosomes are blocks of DNA. They contain a detailed set of instructions that control a wide range of factors, from how the cells of the body develop to what colour eyes a baby will have. Sometimes something can go wrong at the point of conception and the foetus receives too many or not enough chromosomes. The reasons for this are often unclear, but it means the foetus won't be able to develop normally, resulting in a miscarriage. This is very unlikely to recur. It doesn't necessarily mean there's any problem with you or your partner.
I believe you just need more time to heal well.
Wishing you the best.
