In brief: When YOU are ready
Family or friends with good intentions might pressure a couple to "try again" right away.
But both partners must go through a process of grieving for the baby they thought they would have and preparing for what's next. When they get healthy, eat right, avoid toxins and exercise, odds of having a successful pregnancy might increase. They cannot replace the one lost but can often complete a new one.

In brief: Until neg pg test
You need to wait until your current pregnancy test is negative until you try to get pregnant again.
Otherwise, if you present to the provider with a +preg test without having had a negative one, it is difficult to know with certainty if the test is from a new or the old pregnancy. From a physiological standpoint, there is no carryover effect from one pregnancy to another, so no other need to wait.
