You wanted to know how long it takes to get pregnant after a miscarriage. And I'm so sorry to hear about your history, and I sincerely hope better for you in the future. You mentioned that you've been trying for about 5 months now, and, of course, you're wanting it to happen as soon as possible. Miscarriages, in and of themselves, don't affect a woman's ability to conceive. And in fact, about 1 in 5 pregnancies end in miscarriage, and most are due to chromosomal abnormalities, or basically, things weren't forming right. A woman's ability to conceive depends a on a few factors. One is how soon her body returns to a fertile state after the miscarriage. And for some, this happens 1 or 2 months later - others, it takes a little bit longer. It also depends on whether or not there are underlying issues that might contribute to infertility, like is the woman ovulating, are the fallopian tubes blocked, are there issue with the male, like sperm count, or motility, or the shape of the sperm? There's so many factors that go into conception happening, and so, for most couples, on average, it takes like 6 months to conceive, and this is because, even when things are timed just right, the chance of conception is only about 30% to 35% at best. It's not 100%. So it takes most couples several months of trying.
If you're having regular cycles, then continue to try to time intercourse with ovulation, and hopefully it will happen soon for you. But if your cycles are shorter than 25 days or longer than 35 days apart from the beginning of one period to the beginning of the next, or if you're having irregular spotting and bleeding, then you may not be ovulating, and this would be a reason to talk with your doctor, and if you are, it's hard to tell when and if it's happening. So they can give you tailored information and advice about that. Also call if another couple of months goes by. Generally speaking, if a couple hasn't had success for 6 to 12 months, the doctor will counsel with them about when and if it's time to intervene and to determine if further investigation is warranted to help you achieve the dreams of having a baby.
