HELP PLEASE
Hi

A couple of weeks back (7 wks) i gave birth to a stilborn baby boy. I was spotting all the way till Friday when my normal period returned. Will i be ovulating soon? I always had a 28 day cycle does it mean that my cycle will be back to normal now that my period returned? Please help or advise me cause i really really want to try and have another baby. I spoke to my doctor on my 6 weeks check up and he was rather impressed with the way my body healed and i am very positive to conceive again. Should i try again?

You are likely to ovulate 2 weeks after your period. If the cause for the stillbirth was something that could recur, it might be better to wait a bit longer before trying again, to give your body the bets chance to recover fully.
