    Robinson, im sorry that you had to go through that. :hugs: My advice to you would be to get the internet cheapie ovulation strips. After a d&c your cycle might be a bit off. For instance, I ended up ov the day after my af ended. Like cd 8 or 9. But really those strips are the only way to tell other than waiting and temping which would take longer.

    should wait for at least a 1st period. I had had 3 losses and have had a total of 3 d&e's 1 d&c and I miscarried one time at home!

    d&c was after I had my 3rd son in 2008
    1st d&e was sept 2011 1st loss
    2nd d&e was June 2012 3rd loss
    3rd d&e was a repeat d&e and was done a week and a half after the 2nd one in june.

    I agree with FeLynn completely on this. Not only for timing and dating, but so you can heal some before you get preg again. If you can wait a little longer it might help even more. I forgot to mention I got pregnant after one cycle, but I was diagnosed with a short cervix with the possibility of an incompetent cervix and my maternal festal doctor as well as my ob said that this could have been from the d&c and not waiting long enough in between the procedure and falling g pregnant. This isn't meant to scare you so I'm sorry if it does. I just want to save you from having to deal with that if its preventable. Keep in mind it could also be a coincidence. Just listen to your body

    Hi all, am trying to get conceived for the first time. Its been more than a year & me & my husband our trying our best. I even resigned my job by 3 months back, but still waiting for my first baby call....
    Now my doc has advised me to do D&C for the first time. I have agreed to do in the next month, but have lots of fear about doing it. Can anyone please tell me whether its right to do it or not ?

    Did the doctor give you a good explination as to why they want you to have a d&c? What else have you tried to get pregnant before going that route?

    My personal opinion is that having a d&c without it being absolutely necessary might not be good. I was able to get pregnant right away after the d&c I had, but the d&c was not optional and I have had a few complications this pregnancy with my cervix due to the procedure. I'm interested to know what others think about this?

    I know d&c cleans ya out making you more fertile but depending on how its done is a factor and having too many is no good. I have had 3 d&e's and 1 d&c(they are basically the same thing one uses a scrapping and other uses a suction or they use both just depends on the dr) I am terrified at what it has done to my uterus and cervix. I did what I felt was best at the time.

    The d&c I had no choice I was knocked out and they did what they had to do to stop my bleeding almost had my uterus removed. Had my 1st blood transfusion.

    My 1st d&e was Sept 23 2011: because I had a mmc had a gestational sac measuring 5.5 weeks and a yolk sac but no fetal pole. I had my d&e at what should have been 11 weeks.

    my 2nd d&e was June 5th I was 13.2 weeks babys heart had stopped. Specialist recommended it as he wanted my baby sent for test (so did I) and he didn't think I would pass everything on my own. Turns out the dr left some placenta in me and on the 16th I had to have blood transfusion and had a repeat d&e. I didnt want the meds I wanted this process done and over with asap.

    I had a missed miscarriage when the baby stopped developing at around 5 weeks but I only found out on my 3 months scan on the 18th of September...I had a D&C the following week on the 26th of September. Took me a while to make up my mind between the medication and D&C but I am glad I went for the D&C. I got my period 3.5 weeks later - 20th of October. We were TTC straight away but we either missed my O day or my body was not ready to conceive. After my initial disappointment I am glad it didn't happen straight away. I think it is good to separate the two pregnancies in your head - and my first period helped me to draw that line. I hope it will happen very soon though...! Fingers crossed!
