Earliest You Can Have A Miscarriage
1 month: Pregnancy hormone can stay in your body for a month or more depending on the miscarriage and how much and when tissue passed. If its been a month after all tissue has passed, you can probably rely on the pregnancy test. To be sure, serial blood tests with HCG levels can be more accurate. ...Read more

Miscarried at 5 1/2 weeks. Do I have to wait three months before trying again or could i start again at anytime sense it was fairly early on?
Anytime: There's no data to show that waiting three months has an effect on next pregnancy. Eat healthy, get 7-8 hours of sleep a night, be at a healthy weight and exercise are the best ways to make sure you're in good shape to get pregnant again. I typically tell patients to wait at least one menstrual cycle, but again, there's no evidence that you need to wait. Fingers crossed for you! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why do I keep having early miscarriages? I have had two. The second was at five and a half weeks along. What could this mean?
See a REI specialist: You still have a chance of a healthy pregnancy 'on your own', but after 2 or more miscarriages we do tests to find out why. Possible causes include autoimmune conditions like antiphospholipid antibodies, blood clotting disorders, low egg supply, problems in the uterus like fibroids or a uterine septum, hormonal problems, or male or female genetic problems. Get checked out by a rei specialist. ...Read more

Not necessarily: Do you know why you miscarried, and how many times has it happened?. You are not getting younger (profile says 39), so I would suggest two pre-natal consults. One with a geneticist, and one with a fetal-maternal medicine specialist. You live in LA so many excellent docs of both of these specialties available in your area. They can guide you through this assuming you want a child... ...Read more
Depends: It depends on the desires of the patient and the size of the fetus and sac. Its ot technically too early but some women prefer to "pass" and smaller pregnancy naturally. Occasionally this process is longer than expected and she will request a D&C . Larger pregnancies > 7-8weeks may cause a lot of bleeding and trips to the er so often a D&C is offered. ...Read more
