Hi Everyone,

I was just wondering, as I had an ERPC 3 weeks ago at 12 weeks; feeling ready to try again and was wondering what other peoples experiences were! smile

hi,sorry about your MC.I had one last may and it took 6 weeks for my period to arrive after the ERPC and I got pregnant on the 2nd cycle.
I know some people don't wait for their period but with the pregnancy I lost I hadn't had a LMP date as I got pregnant straight after having my coil removed and it was a nightmare as the medical profession never believed I knew when I'd conceived.It caused many problems with scan dates etc so my advice would be to wait until you get your first period then go for it!
Good luck smile

Being a stickler for following advice I waited for my 1st period which took about 6 weeks. It took about 3 months to fall pregnant again which felt like an eternity at the time but was probably good for me in that it gave me time to out the whole experience behind me. I hope everything works out for you very soon.

Hi sorry to hear of your m/c. After my erpc I feel pregnant straight away with no cycle in between. The midwife later said that after m/c you are more fetile. I have had no problems with dating as I had an early scandueto 6 miscarriages. I am due 4th august

Sorry about your m/c sad I've had two erpcs and conceived quickly after. The second time I didn't wait and conceived straight away (no period after erpc). She is now having a nap upstairs smile Hope you conceive again soon and wish you lots of luck in your next pregnancy <hugs>

9 weeks until 1st period which = 9 weeks of wishing/imagining I was pregnant again. Was a long time.

But then got pregnant before the next period, for which I am everlastingly grateful.

It's a very difficult and crazy-making time.

Sorry to hear about your mc. I had a mmc at 13 weeks, followed by an ERPC (end of April 2009). My period came back 29 days after the ERPC. I then had one normal cycle and got pregnant on the next cycle - July 2009. Am currently 32+6.

Good luck!

I was told by the ob to wait one cycle - we started ttc after I had a period (which was a weird one day event).

DS was conceived exactly 6 weeks after the procedure.

I know this is a really really old thread but was wondering how long it took people in the end. I had an ERPC 6 months ago now and still not pregnant and starting to go bananas sad

Sorry to hear about your miscarriage - hope you doing ok.

I had a miscarriage at a similar stage last year. Period returned four weeks later and conceived again two weeks after that. So this pregnancy is dated from four weeks after the ERPC. Currently 30 weeks and going fine so far ...

Good luck!

Notamumyet81 Thu 25-Jun-15 13:50:24

Sorry - I responded to the original op, didn't realise it was an old thread! Sorry to hear it's taking you longer than you'd like to conceive again sad I'm sure people will be on with good advice soon. I wish you all the best smile

LSetty I was pregnant in the next full cycle - about 2 months after the ERPC. Sorry it's taking you longer than you hoped.

Hi LSetty
It took 7 months after EPRC. Are you doing ovulation tests? I was using those along with the clear blue fertility monitor. Frustrating isn't it.
