When is safe to try and ttc after a d&c??

I just lost my baby July 2nd at 12 weeks, my doc said the baby didn't make it past 8 weeks! I have been reading ALL over the internet on when it is safe to get pregnant again. My husband and I tried for over a year for this baby and now I feel like it was just taken from me. I feel like if we don't try right away it may take to long!

If anyone has some helpful information for us that would be wonderful. I'm scared to death! They want me to wait for at least one cycle but I really don't want to wait that long. My best friend is pregnant right now as well, and she was actually 5 weeks ahead of me. I'm having such a difficult time with this. My son is 3 and I really would love to give him a healthy baby brother/sister.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Sex isn't recommended for two weeks after a miscarriage to prevent an infection. You can ovulate and become pregnant as soon as two weeks after a miscarriage. ... After one miscarriage, there might be no need to wait to conceive. Gave your self some time to heal completely both physically and emotionally.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
