Miscarriage on Oct 10th

I had a missed miscarriage on Oct. 10th, 2007 but the baby had died at 8.5 weeks. My body did not register the baby was gone, so I still felt pregnant. I was having the slightest cramping, so I called the doc. The ultrasound showed no heartbeat. They inserted drugs into the uterus and after 8 hours of the most pain I had ever been in, the "products of conception" as they say, came out. The doctor said to wait one cycle before trying again. What is the theory behind this?

The doctor told my cousin that you are extremely fertile the cycle directly following a miscarriage. I don't know if it's true but she is pregnant and she never had another period after her mc. She mc in june and they told her in july that she was pg again. i don't know if this is any info that you were looking for but good luck. ps they tell you to wait so that you body "down there" can be healed after the mc, that's what my dr told me.

So they can calculate the estimated due date. You probably want to wait a cycle to let your uterus "heal" and also for your mind to heal a bit also. I am sorry for your loss.
