[QUOTE=Faith73]So as much as I wanted to not expect too much, I did anyway. Did 4 IUIs, then pregnant on 2nd (cryo) IVF. Then lost it at 5 weeks and am very sad.
I was wanting to ask how long until I should do another IVF cycle? Is there a time?
Also, is there anything to do but wait & see once you are pregnant? Meaning how do I avoid a miscarriage? (this may be a dumb question)
Trying to stay positive. Thanks for any insight.[/QUOTE]
I’m sorry to hear about the loss. A lot of people here know how you feel here, including my wife and I. Our first cycle was a pregnancy, but ended in miscarriage as well. It’s hard not to get your hopes up. We stipulated that we wouldn’t before the cycle, but did it anyway. However, it turned out to be a significant learning experience and it helped us change our circumstances to improve our our odds next time. We also learned later that the pregnancy was very “iffy” anyway to begin with, so there was really no reason for us to get our hopes up to begin with.
As far as how long to wait, a different RE will give you a different time. Three months seems to be pretty common from what I’ve heard, though a few recommend sooner.
