*Cycles after D&C/Miscarriage - What to expect*

Postby haven12 » Fri Mar 07, 2014 11:17 am

Hey guys! I FINALLY got my period after D&C for MMC on January 22nd. During my last cycle (the cycle of the D&C), I did get a positive OPK but my luteal phase was much shorter than normal and my boobs never became sore (they are ALWAYS sore after I ovulate). My question - when did you cycles go back to normal (or did they)? or when did you get a normal cycle regardless if it was your old "normal". I really want to start TTC again this month but I have NO idea when I will ovulate, etc... THANKS in advance!

my first AF after MC was normal (Ovulated on time, AF came on time. counting miscarriage date as CD1).

The 2nd cycle was longer (ovulated 1 week late) but I ended up getting BFP in that cycle (though ended up in early MC at 5 week). The next cycle, it was even longer (ovulated 2 week late), despite that, I'm pregnant again on that cycle (and going for 9.5 weeks now and praying that this will be a healthy one).

So it seems to me that your cycle or ovulation might be out of whack for a while but if you temp and do OPK, you can still catch your ovulation & conceive. I was told to wait for one AF cycle before trying again (though on this one, I got pg back to back).

Good luck!
