Blighted ovum
At my 8 week scan only the sac was visible with no fetus. the sac dated 6.5w. Dr said we should wait and scan after 10 days. The next week I started spotting, it bacame heavier with some blood clots. Back to Dr. and I had a D & C that same day, Gyn said it was blighted ovum and that it happens only once to most women. Gyn said we could start trying immediately, as some of the other patients having a D&C did not even start their cycle 'cause they were pregnant.

Should I follow her advice and start trying to conceive immediately? Many other info suggests waiting at least 1 to 3 months?

There is a better succes rate if you wait at least 3 months.
