    To be honest I didn't even try to count my cycle after the m/c. I waited until my first af and then started counting again from then. Sorry that doesn't really answer your question but my feeling was that it was all a bit out of synch after the m/c so not much point in counting!

    I did a lot of research on this and asked my doctor. CD 1 is the day you get your first AF after the MC. It is not the day you miscarry or the day you have a d&c. Hope that helps! You can still probably get pregnant after a MC, but counting days is pretty much pointless. Maybe use OPK's twice a day?

    :hugs:

    I think they mean 4-6 weeks after the tissue is gone. The day I lost the baby (tissue vs. just blood) is the day I say I miscarried even though I spotted & then bled before then & bled after for a week.

    My positive opk was 3 weeks after I lost my bean & AF was 5 weeks 1 day after. My 1st miscarriage AF arrived about 4 weeks after I lost my bean.

    I just looked back and my first af came about 29 days after I had the d&c, which is about a normal cycle length for me. Hope that helps. X

    My first AF arrived 34 days after my d&c but that was with the help of progesterone. It is possible I could have started AF on my own though, my cycles are normally long (about 37 days). I'd say if you don't get AF within 4 weeks, call your doc and ask for progesterone.
