I'm wondering whether I can join you please? We found out I'd had a MMC on 30th March @ 10 weeks (having had a scan the week before because I was bleeding that showed everything was perfect). I had a surgical management on the 8th April. I was referred back to the hospital by my GP last week because I had a faint positive test after 3 weeks. I started AF exactly 28 days after surgery, and the follow up scan at the hospital confirmed it was my period returning. They were also able to see that I ovulated last month (despite the +HPT) and that I have a follicle ready for this cycle too.

My GP was concerned about my emotional state last week (previous sufferer of PND, depression and anxiety) and suggested I take a few months off to recover emotionally, but I just want to try again.

I'm now CD6 and wondering when to start OPK's? I've never used them before and just waited for nature to take it's course, but I don't want to wait another 6 months before falling pregnant again. Although the last cycle was 28 days, it's more usual for me to have a cycle lasting between 23-26 days, so I'm not sure what to do?
Hey there first off, sorry for your loss. As far as OPK's, I am CD10 and that usually the day I start to test.. unless you usually have very short cycles? In the off chance you have a 23-26 day cycle then you might want to start testing CD7

Hi all,

How is everyone doing? So sorry to hear about your loss loves cookies. I hope you're ok.

I don't have any advice about opks. My past two pregnancies I've fallen pregnant in the first month of trying by just trying to stay relax and BD every other day. I'm nearly one week in to the TWW. I'm trying really hard to keep distracted and not symptom spot. Although there's not many symptoms to spot! I have a feeling I'm not pregnant this month. I don't know why I think that, just do. If it doesn't work out this month I might use opks next month. Ah the waiting is so frustrating!!

Still very light spotting here but literally just a brown smudge when I wipe and I was naughty this morning as we dtd so I'm hoping I've not risked anything?! But it's done now. It's was nice to reconnect tho as I was spotting before my d&c so it's been about 6 weeks! And poor dh was dying lol.

Mrs d hope this is your month!!!

MrsD I have concluded that you can have every symptom imaginable and not be pregnant, have no symptoms and be pregnant and everything in between. Don't count yourself out yet. I've got all my fingers crossed for you!!!

ladyapril do you do OPKs everyday from CD10 until you hit O? I just bought my first pack of tests this month to try to figure out if I was ovulating after the D&C. Do you just test once a day, I think I read somewhere to test twice, but that seems excessive.

Ricschick I think you will probably be ok. We were worried about infection at first too, but I have been fine. Since it is only spotting and brown I would say you are finished with any active bleeds that would be a concern. It really does feel good to reconnect again doesn't it? Not being able to dtd really bothered me post-d&C. I mean, I knew I had to wait for obvious reasons, but I just felt so lonely during that time and really craved that connection.

afm I am frustrated. I finally got an almost completely negative hpt on Thursday, which in this situation made me very happy. Then today I tested again just to get a clear stark white negative, but instead it looks blazing positive. We have been trying again so if this were next week I would probably be excited, but I am only 8/9 DPO (if I actually ovulated) so I know that is too early. Prior to today they had been getting lighter everyday. I can't imagine they were all faulty tests.

Has anyone had a second surge of HCG after a miscarriage? Ugh, I really want to move on from all this.

I attached a picture. Top is Thursday, bottom is today. I even dug Thursdays out of the trash and it isn't any darker than it was when I took the pic.

I'm thinking maybe today's test is faulty. I think I'll wait a few days and test again, maybe with a different brand and see what happens.
