Wait on delivery: No they are not going to make you wait too long. Nature is in control and man will probably not intervene unless there is a problem. Then you can discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

I just had a stillbirth delivery at 38 weeks, first pregnancy , no know cause. How long should I wait to get pregnant again?

I just had a stillbirth delivery at 38 weeks, first pregnancy , no know cause. How long should I wait to get pregnant again?

Give it some time: Speak to your obstetrician and make sure that all aspects have been evaluated for the stillbirth. If there was a compromise in the umbilical cord that may potentially give an answer. Also chromosomal evaluation may be helpful along with familial thrombophilia clotting studies. Allow yourself and your partner to grieve the death of the child before jumping into the next pregnancy. Make sure that all potential causes have been evaluated before attempting another pregnancy. I personally would have my patient waited at least 4 to 6 months before trying again. ...Read more

How long after a miscarriage was approximately 4 weeks pregnant do I have to wait before trying to conceive again?

How long after a miscarriage was approximately 4 weeks pregnant do I have to wait before trying to conceive again?

Waiting: I assume you mean an uncomplicated miscarriage. Reasons include 1) your HCG level from the miscarriage must fall to zero, 2) you must resume ovulating, and 3) you must re-establish a cyclic endometrium. I recommend waiting 1 full cycle after an uncomplicated miscarriage and confirming the HCG has fallen. Many doctors recommend a longer wait, but it seems arbitrary to me after 1 cycle. ...Read more

OPKs: You might want to try repeating your pregnancy test in a few days or doing a serum (blood) test. I would also recommend using OPKs (ovulation prediction kits the next 3 cycles) to see if ovulating. Most OB's and fertility specialists would appreciate having that info before you start meds and it may be that you aren't getting the day right. Find these next to pregnancy tests. ...Read more
