Dating pregnancy straight after a miscarriage
"There is no reason to delay pregnancy after a single miscarriage," says Sami David, MD, a New York City-based reproductive endocrinologist and pregnancy loss expert.
"If the woman has had two miscarriages or more, she should not get pregnant until a complete investigation for the causes of miscarriages has been completed." This investigation can take up to three months.
I was also on metformin for these last 2 pregnancies due to my pcos. I guess every ones path is different but don't give up hope.

Women who waited two years to conceive after their miscarriage had a higher risk for potentially life-threatening ectopic pregnancy (when the fertilized egg has implanted outside the uterus, usually in the fallopian tubes) and/or pregnancy termination than women who conceived earlier.
These women were also more likely to deliver via cesarean section or give birth to premature or low-birth-weight babies than women who became pregnant within six months after their miscarriage, the study shows.
I obviously have no idea what the future brings for this pregnancy but I'm doing weekly hcg levels and I've only done 2 so far but they're doing the right thing. Go from confusion to clarity with our easy online guides.Specifically, women who conceive within six months after a miscarriage are less likely to miscarry again or experience other pregnancy-related complications when compared with women who wait for longer periods of time. "Women can be broadly reassured that the next pregnancy is likely to have a positive outcome, and they should try to conceive as soon as they feel physically and mentally ready," says study researcher Sohinee Bhattacharya, MD, an obstetrician at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, in an email.Exactly how long a woman should wait to conceive after a miscarriage is controversial.The study did include women who had miscarried later in pregnancy, and the findings were broadly similar to those who had miscarriages earlier in their pregnancy.There are some subgroups of women who may need to wait longer before becoming pregnant again, including women who show signs of an infection, the researchers caution.
It may not be possible to generalize the findings outside of the population studied, Bhattacharya cautions.
