Sad news - need CBFM advice urgently

I've lost my baby. I was six weeks pregnant and it just happened really suddenly yesterday. I am trying to stay positive and want to think about trying again once my body has recovered. I just wondered whether I should set my CBFM now as if this is 1st day of my AF or wait till a proper AF arrives? Does anyone have experience of this? I don't want my monitor to get confused as it worked on month 3 and I am pinning my hopes on it working again quickly. Thank you so much, Emma


  • Hi Emma - So sorry to hear your news, I'm sending you a big hug. I had a MMC in October and had medical management so can't give you advice regarding your CBFM, but I just wanted to say you've come to the right place for some support as everyone on here is so lovely.
    I was exactly the same as you when I found our I had miscarried, I just wanted to focus on trying again... My period came 6 weeks and 4 days after my MC, and me and my hubby are TTC again already.
    If it makes you feel any better apparently you are very fertile followign a MC.
    So sorry, take care, rest up and look after yourself.

  • So sorry to hear your news. Look after yourself.
    When I mc'd at 7+4 I decided to wait until had normal AF before I reset CBFM. It worked for me, I fell pg again that month.
    Best wishes xxx
  • Hi Emma,

    I'm so sorry to find you here. I had an ectopic in September. I also have a cbfm and to be honest I would wait until you have a proper period before setting it. It could take 6 weeks to get your period and I know cbfm doesn't go on that long.

    I know not what you want to hear as I wanted to re-set mine immediately. Big hugs x x
  • i did reset mine but as it took 8 weeks for AF i went through a LOT of sticks as i kept restting it and then had to reset it the month after because it was such a long cycle! xx
  • Thank you so much for all your advice and I am so sorry to hear all your sad stories too. I am going to wait till my next AF before re-setting. I just feel so impatient at the moment like I want to try again today! I don't know how I am going to wait until the new year before trying. I just want to wish time away. I will be on this forum alot I think!
