time frame for pergnancy after miscarriage

Morning Doctor,

I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks october 2012. I had what seemed like a period exactly 28 days after dnc was done. I had red blood for one day (not much though) and old brown blood (like when your periods end) the next day. In december I had my period again exactly 28 days after the one in november and it was again for 2 days. Having my period now again exactly 28 days later and again it looks like it will be for 2 days again. My periods were usually about 3 to 4 days before. My question now: how long before one usually gets pregnant again after a miscarriage and dnc was done? We are now at 3 months after the miscarriage.

Thank you doctor.

It is safe to say that after three menstrual cycles, you can try to fall pregnant again. Best of luck!

thank you racoon, we accepted the loss and are ready to move on. I think that I am getting impatient as we were trying to get pregnant again immediatly and we are still not. I suppose it will happen when God decides it is the right time.

I fell pregnant 2 weeks, and then 6 weeks after DandC''s and have 2 healthy boys. Start when you are emotionally ready.
