When did you ovulate after miscarriage?


I had a miscarriage at 7 weeks. The bleeding has now calmed down so has the cramps. I only have spotting now which should end in a day or two. I did a pregnancy test it is still very strong positive. I called the EGU for advice and they diagnosed me as complete miscarriage from my scan last on friday. They said I should get my period in 4-6 weeks and the remaining tissue should pass with my period. They advised to wait until next period for ttc. However, I am confused how can I ovulate with alot of HCG still in my system. When will I likely be ovulating? Can you share your stories with me please of when you ovulated after an early miscarriage. . There is no point doing ovulation tests yet as they will be positive due to my hcg levels. I just want to track my cycles even though I am not ttc this month.

Hi Orangepie. There is no clear cut answer to this.  However, what happens is that it takes about 10 days for your hCG level to drop down to between 5 and 0.  Then approximately another 3-4 wks for your hormones to regulate again and ending in a bleed - which is your first period. Let's hope all falls back into place soon. Sending a gentle hug.  Diane


Really sorry to hear you've had a mc. I had medical management after missed mc and it took weeks for it to complete. 

My periods settled back to normal relatively quickly. So hopefully yours will too. They said we could try again after had had a period. It took me a long time to get over it.

I found the Miscarriage Association web site and helpline really useful.


I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I miscarried at 6 weeks, didn't have medical intervention but it lasted a little over a week. I had a period after 4 weeks but I am very regular. To be honest I didn't feel like trying again until after my next period anyway, your body might need a rest (mentally as well as physically). Wishing you all the best x
