Had unprotected sex after bleeding from miscarriage stopped, trying to get pregnant. Headache, bleeding. Am I pregnant ?

Hi, I just had a miscarriage on January 23rd and bleed for a week and two days. Had unprotected sex with husband since I stopped bleeding. Was checked out by my OBGYN he said everything looked good, suggested we wait to try again about three months. I had being trying for over 18yrs to get pregnant with the help of clomid the first try we got pregnant but lost it. We didn t wait and now I started bleeding very light and have headaches like crazy. Took a ovulation test but it was negative. Could I be pregnant so soon after my miscarriage and without a menstral cycle?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pregnancy is not likely so soon after a miscarriage. It takes 4-6 weeks for the periods to become regular after a miscarriage. The symptoms that you are having could be related to a mild hormonal imbalance.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Thanks for the query.
After undergoing miscarriage it will take some time for regrowth of the endometrium.
The time of onset of periods after miscarriage differ from person to person.
Usually it will take around 2 weeks for the resumption of Ovulation.
So if you had unprotected intercourse around that period, there is possibility of pregnancy.
The spotting you had could be:
-Post ovulatory Spotting
- Implantation bleeding
-Spotting in the early pregnancy etc.
So, once consult gynecologist, get examined and go for ultrasound.
By this the possible cause for your problem can be identified and treated.
Better to have 2 to 3 months gap after miscarriage for better recovery.
Take care.
