TTC after m/c before AF


Well I'm now starting to TTC again. It's been almost 2 weeks since my first m/c, first pregnancy and we're starting to look forward. As it was a natural m/c I was given the go ahead to start trying once the bleeding stopped. I have no idea when I'm likely to ovulate so we've been BDing our butts off in the hope we'll catch this egg

Just wondered how many others are in the same position right now. And when do you hope to get your bfp by?

Hi there,

can you even ovulate before you have a period? I always thought you had to have a period first or you dont ovulate? I had a MMC last week and i was going to wait until AF returned to start trying again?

I'm sorry for your loss.

Lots of women fall pregnant again after a m/c before AF, I don't know how many women ovulate before the first AF, but some do. Apparently all you need is for your hcg levels to return to 0 and your body can then ovulate. I figured we may as well try.

Hi! Im new to this forum and Im hoping to start TTC in about a week as I had an ERPC a week ago and was told to wait 2 weeks.

I might not ovulate for a while but at least we can start to bd again for fun.

SloanPet - yes ovulation comes before AF. Your body can be a bit weird after a loss, but normally, you dont get AF unless you have ovulated. REally sorry to hear you had a mmc, so did I.

Welcome. And I'm sorry for your loss

Ive been told that now my hcg levels are back to normal I should ovulate fairly soon. As there's no way of temping reliably after a m/c we'll just BD lots this cycle until AF shows her ugly face. And if it doesn't happen this cycle, we're getting plenty of exercise in the process.

That sounds like the right way to go!

I did a pg test 2 days ago and the line was there, but fainter than when I got pg, so Im hoping my levels are going down, however I dont think theyre anywhere near zero yet because Im still getting morning sickness like nausea if I dont eat for a couple of hours, which is driving me crazy to be honest.

I want to TTC as soon as we can... I had a D&C one week ago. Still bleeding and spotting, but as soon as that's done, we'll probably NTNP until dr gives the go ahead and then will really TTC after that. This has made me want a LO even more! We deserve a family!

Fashionqueen, I lost all symptoms the days I lost my angel. I started bleeding on the Friday and my hcg was over 1100, passed LO on the Sunday (at 6w2d), on the Tuesday my levels were down to 287. Down to 85 by the Friday. I then got a -hpt early in the week. I feel quite lucky that my levels dropped so quickly, I understand for some women it can take weeks to drop.

FX'd yours won't take too long. Have you got to go in for a blood test soon? They wouldn't discharge me until my levels were below 25.

It's weird, when I got that -hpt I felt happy. It felt like the start rather than the end. And then I sat there thinking how odd it was looking at a bfn and being glad. Just knowing that this means we could start again.

Nope they said to me I dont need to see anyone again unless I had any severe bleeding, and I stopped bleeding 2 days again and getting normal CM back again, which is good! So its just the slight nausea thing.

I think because I had an ERPC and they said that there was nothing left, they dont need to check perhaps? I was allowed home on the same day. They just check you can do a wee and made sure you ate and drank something.

Also - I wonder if perhaps because for me it was a missed miscarriage, it will take a while. I only found out that the baby had died at 8 weeks and 4 days, when I went for the 12 week scan. Id had no bleeding, was still being sick etc. I only had some tiny spotting 2 days later whilst I was waiting for the ERPC which was scheduled for 4 days after. And I think that could have been purely because my mind then knew, my body started to realise. But that was all I ever had.
