Miscarriage & pregnancy loss

Hello, so I had a miscarriage 3 weeks and 2 days ago on the 23/05/2016 at 5 weeks pregnant. I wasn't trying to get pregnant and was totally shocked when I fell pregnant as was being really careful. After it happend I was absolutely mortified, although I didn't want to get pregnant, after having a miscarriage I wanted nothing more than to be pregnant. I'm 19 and have been with my partner for 4 years. We live together and have a very mature relationship. We want to get pregnant again as soon as possible and I'm just wanting some advice as have had no help at all from doctors. They literally told me I'd had a complete miscarriage and to test in a weeks time and as long as the test was neg they didn't need to see me again (the test was neg). They offered no emotional support or any advice at all so I took to the Internet for coping advice as I was a complete wreck. I had 2 weeks off work and then went back thinking I was ready, I was so wrong, I had a complete meltdown in the office in front of everyone and was sent home and signed off for a further 2 weeks. I'm due to go back in 5 days time and just hoping this time I am completely ready but don't want to look like I'm taking the mick with how much time off I have. So can anyone help with how much time off is acceptable and how to tell wether I'm ready to go back or not?
Also when should I do a pregnancy test? We've been having unprotected sex almost every other night since 29/05/2016 as I'd completely stopped bleeding by the 27th. I have done a test today and it's negative so just want to know how long to wait? I feel like I have a few more questions but have rambled abit so might add more later. Any help and advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

I had a mc in 2010, was off work for 6 weeks as I bled for that long. We tried for 10 months after and had no joy. We decided to stop trying and see what happened, and also bought a house. 2 months after that I was pregnant!! Had a very healthy rainbow baby who is now 4. Everyone is different, so body's do tend to not follow what everyone else does. Just don't lose hope!! It will happen.

I'm sorry about your loss, most of the time with early miscarraiges they won't give you any support or look into it unless you have 2 or more.
But your lucky you have age on your side, I'm 24 and lost my baby at 21 weeks and fell pregnant again during the second cycle. The best advice is to relax and enjoy the fun with your partner it can take up to 6 months to fall again but you should be fine just don't stress yourself out :)

Hi Lisa I'm new to opks too this month, i would take that to mean you had your LH surge today. Meaning you should ovulate within 24-48 hours. Hopefully one of the other more experienced opk ladies will confirm xx

Hi guys, iv took some time out to Get my head together, I miscarried for a second time very recently at 6weeks. Myself and my partner were absolutely heartbroken.
Im just wondering does anybody know how soon you can try again even if there has still been no sign of af afterward and how long on an average scale would it take? Also does anyone know if you have a higher chance of keeping it if you try sooner? Im not very sure of everything as it all seems unclear to me. this might sound absolutely ridiculous but does this get any easier in terms of Is the constant fear of something happening always going to be there if it is a success the next time or can I do anything to prevent it.
any help or advice is greatly appreciated as I’m kinda stuck in limbo just now. Thank you in advance.
