Advice on getting pregnant after a D&C anyone did it ?


Just popping in to ask some advice, has anyone got pregnant after having a D&C and didn't wait for their first cycle ?

Do they just advise not to for dating or other medical reason ?

I am currently pregnant (a wee bit!), after having a D&C in July of last year. We were TTC for 6 cycles before it happened again. My doctor advised me to wait one full cycle post-surgery to try again. They would like you to have one normal period before atempting to become pregnant again. Pregnancies that happen prior to waiting for the first regular period after a D&C are prone to miscarriage. Your lining needs time to build back up after the procedure.

Congrats honey... I have been told so many different things by medial staff I just don't know what to believe... I guess waiting would rest my mind more.

Wishing you all the best in your pregnancy and thank you for posting xx

My doctor advised me that I could ttc right after a d&c and that he only says to wait for one cycle due to dating purposes. It took me about nine months to get pg after the d&c but everything seems to be going well.

My doctor told me to wait at first but when I asked why he said there really was no valid reason not to try straight away. We did but I had severe thrush after my D&C ( to remove placental tissue) and it made BDing awkward so we didn't catch that cycle but did the next!

Ours also told us to wait one cycle. We did actually BD in my fertile period before first AF but didn't conceive, it actually took a few months (though we weren't trying all of those months).

Looking back I'm glad we did wait, as I'd have been so paranoid conceiving again so soon plus mentally I think I wasn't ready and was still grieving. My first couple of AF's were a bit strange too so I think letting my uterus rest and lining get back to normal was a good idea.

it's totally personal choice, AFAIK no studies have shown an increased risk of MC after D&C, it's if you feel emotionally and physically ready. My view is if your body isn't ready, e.g. if the lining isn't thick enough, you won't conceive anyway - your body knows what to do. Wishing you lots of luck

Thank you girls, and I agree I will be really worried to fall pregnant before my first AF but I think I'll worry now regardless... Hope to be in this forum soon.

Thanks again for posting x

I had a d&c Nov 21st, waited one cycle (a very long 46 day cycle) and then fell pregnant immediately afterward. We're now about 5 weeks! Doctor didn't recommend anything but did say that I would be most fertile for the next 3-6 months and that the lining is favorable to implantation after a D&C because it's nice and smooth. We BD'd only once and after trying for several years I think the doctor was right because it worked like a charm. If you feel mentally ready then I say you should go for it! Good luck and TONS AND TONS of sparkly baby dust!

New & in the same boat


Hi. I'm new to the board, was browsing, and came across this post. I found out last September that I was pregnant and within a week of finding out it was twins, learned that their hearts had stopped beating (around 8 weeks). I had a d&c in early in early November & my cycle returned in December.

We got pregnant very quick after going off the pill and weren't really even trying. It's now been almost 6 mos since the d&c and I can't help but be worried/afraid that there's not something wrong that we can't conceive again. I'm trying SO hard not to put pressure on myself but it's also very hard when it seems like everyone else is getting pregnant! Not to mention that although I am emotionally through the hard part of the grief & loss, it's still challenging to not think of what could have been and that I would have been very close to my due date now.

My husband has been so supportive but I know this is different for him at this point. He just can't understand it from my perspective.

I wanted to share bc it seems like I'm in a similar boat to some of you. And, I don't have many people to talk to about this!

Thx.
