Hi there, I have understood your concern. I will suggest you the best possible treatment options.

1 ) First of all do not panic .Sorry to hear about your previous pregnancy loss.

2 ) please fully trust in your treating doctor .
You are rightly advised to wait for 3 months before you plan to get pregnant. Also, it is a very right advice to start prenatal vitamins.
Usually, I suggest to start with Folic acid, Vitamin B 12 and Omega 3 supplements at least 3 months before you plan to get pregnant. This helps to prevent many problems during pregnancy and delivery.

3 ) As you might be aware that in a woman with regular cycles day 10 to 20 of the cycle is the most fertile period of cycle. If you have unprotected sex act in the fertile period, at least on alternate days, then you stand chance to get pregnant. Also, you can Get HSG - hysterosalpingography done, to know about the patency of your fallopian tubes.

I hope this answer helps you.
Thanks.
