Tracking O after MC


I miscarried early. I was a little over 5 weeks. I MCed naturally. Which only took 4 days. Hcg is 0.

If I hadn't gotten pregnant, this week would be my fertile week. I ordered a bbt and opks. Should have them today. I'll start tempting tomorrow. Should I even expect to O anytime soon? Will be normal period come ontime (2 weeks from now)?

I've read you're more fertile right after MC so I'd kinda like to try and see what happens. Any advice? What's been your experience?

Generally, you can sort of treat the miscarriage as a period, so the day of the mc is CD1 and you would expect to be fertile however many days you usually are after that. It likely won't fall back into the same pattern you were in, but a new one will start. It's easier to figure out though once you get your first period. Honestly, if you're mid cycle, I wouldn't bother with temping. It will tell you nothing useful to start now. If you want to temp, I'd wait until the first day of your next cycle and start them (assuming you don't get pregnant this cycle). Opks, I would generally use every day just to see if you can get an idea of what's doing on for now, but you may not ovulate or you may have already if it's been a few weeks since your mc, so try not to worry too much if nothing seems to be happening.

My miscarriage was at 11 weeks (though was a missed mc so baby stopped developing well before that) and I had a d&c (waited 6 weeks for it to happen on its own and it never did). My cycles came back right away. Literally, if I counted the day of the d&c as CD1, I ovulated 14 days later just like I always would and got my first period after 28 days. We were not trying to conceive then anyway, but it was reassuring to know all was normal and fine. 2nd cycle it was the same, O on day 14 as always and now waiting. I don't bother with temping anymore (did my first two pregnancies), but now I use opks as I can tell when I'm ovulating anyway and can't be bothered with the temping as it doesn't tell me anything different. But I would just take it slowly and see what happens. If you are new to charting your cycles, I would be patient with it until you figure it out and it makes more sense to start from the beginning of the month (first day of your period), but certainly no harm in trying opks now. You might still catch it if they come soon enough. If nothing else, I found it reassuring to know that everything was working fine.

Thank you for the info. I did use opks and temping with the last baby. I think more than anything I want to know what my body is doing. I MC last week. Dh and I are still on the fence on having another. I think I may want it more than he does but I'm not sure if that's my body wanting to replace what was lost, ya know. I guess no matter what happens, what is meant to be will be.

I miscarried in February, after the miscarriage ended (bled for almost a month!) my cycle went back to 28 days like it was before...I had two cycles like that, but this month, I started what I think was my period on day 20, bled for 3 days, nothing for 2 more and after having sex last night, when I wipe it's pink. My OB doctor says it's probably just an annovulatory cycle, but I just can't help but worry that my body is not working right! Help!

Thats what Im worried about too. That my body isnt going to work properly anymore lol. Its kind of a silly thought but I think its a common one! Ive been peeing on OPKs for what seems like forever (probably just a week) and ofcourse neg.

Ive been temping..or atleast trying to, to get an idea of what my body is doing. I forgot how much i HATE it. So..I bought an Ava bracelet. Its suppose to do all the work for you lol. I think more than anything, right now, I just want to know whats going on, if things are going back to normal.

DH and I are NTNP, I guess...and Ive decided since MC to make some lifestyle changes and become healthier, just in case I get pregnant again!!
