Depends: It depends if the pregnancy was biochemical then restarting the Clomid (clomiphene) once you have a menstrual cycle is fine. If the miscarriage was further along then approximately a two month wait would be helpful.

A 37-year-old member asked:

Does light bleeding in early pregnancy mean I am having a miscarriage?

Specializes in Preventive Medicine
No: There are many benign causes for spotting or bleeding early in pregnancy, and 30% of all women with normal pregnancy outcomes will actually have bleeding in the first trimester. Of course it is important to contact your physician if you are having bleeding with your pregnancy, but it does not mean the pregnancy will end in miscarriage.

Does painful ovulation mean there will be a painful menstrual cycle?

1 doctor answer4 doctors weighed in

Not necessarily: Painful ovulation can potentially be caused by a large preovulation cyst, or a small amount of blood was released during ovulation, or scar tissue being present around the ovary. Subsequent menstruation may not be painful.
