View Full Version : Getting your period after a miscarriage
for the last 2 days i have been experiencing those tell tail signs that I'm going to get my period (i hope i'm not imagining it) and i was wondering how to work out when i will be ovulating again.
Before I fell pregnant before my M/C i was having my period every 26 days on the dot. So i could work out when i was ovulating.
Any suggestions on how to work it out. ? to buy an ovulation kit or just presume that once it does come that i will have my period 26 days after that and work out the ovulation time from that?
Any suggestions grateful
Cheers Pippa xoxox
Hi pippa, hopefully your period comes very soon, hopefully your 28 day cycle stays the same. the best way i know when to find out you ovulate it to take you temprature every morning as soon as you wake you and chart your results on a gragh, when you notice your temprature has risen then that means your ovulation and the best time to fall pregant, I only just started to do this myself as i am trying to concieve, I found it hard to remember EVERY morning especially when the first thing on my mind when i wake up is going to the loo, the cold morning dont help! Ive also been told to check cervical mucus but im not a full bottle on that one yet. Hope this has been a bit of help for you. Best of luck :) Mum to Connor 14/07/03
Well I finally got my period today thank god. (I never thought there would be a time in my life when i would want it to come).
So now we will be able TTC again and I'm hoping that we will have the same luck in falling quickly again (fell in the first month) and hopefully this one will be Ok. I don't think I could cope with another m/c again.
I guess we will just have to wait and see, I was talking to my DP an saying that I already feel nervous in waiting hoping that we fall again quickly. I know though that I need to relax and enjoy practicing and just hope for the best.
So hopefully we will have some good news to share with everyone in a while.
that's great news!!! I so clearly remember dying for my period to come after my miscarriage (took 8 and a half weeks and drove me mad). It's nice to know that you can now try again and my fingers are crossed for you that it won't take too long.
If it is taking you a while I highly recommend using the ovulation prediction kits you can buy at the chemist. They are a bit expensive (about $60) but you get 5 sticks to test your urine around the time you think you might be ovulating and you get a distinctive blue line when you are about to ovulate which means you know exactly when to try - worked for us both times I got pregnant (although still took a few months of using them unfortunately).
Best of luck and it will happen for you -you have been pregnant and you will get pregnant again.
I was so releved it came. I thought though it would be heavier than it has been becasue I never bled alot after the D & C but I have never been a heavy bleeder so I suppose it's normal. I can't wait to start trying again, and I just hope that we conceive straight away again like we did last time.
I am going to work my ovulation days out on a 26 day cycle (as I was having my period every 26 days before I fell pregnant the last time) hopefully my cycle will be the same.
So wish me luck I'm trying to keep relaxed but It is hard. I'm not taking any chances this time. I am not drinking or taking any medications etc to decrease that risk of m/c, I couldn't cope with going through that again.
Talk to you soon

I thought I would post a reply to your question as I am in a very similar situation.
I too fell in my first month of ttc and had a m/c at nine weeks unfortunately! I then had to have a d&c. Before this, my period was very regular at about 28 days. I found that my next period came almost exactly a month after my D&C - it was very heavy and quite quick which was not normal for me. After that, I have been using ovulation predictor strips and hopefully, I should ovulate 12 - 14 days after my period started I am told. I am in that time frame now and like you, I am hoping that I fall as quickly as I did the first time.
The thing that I worry about is how much worry I will feel when I do fall again. I don't think I could go through another MC again just like you said! I am 36 years old and time is not on my side, so I am hoping :)
I wish you lots of luck too!
