Hi Hannah -
I am so sorry about your miscarriage.
I don't know that their is any clear answer to this question. The answer comes from when you feel ready both physically and emotionally. If you lost a lot of blood during the miscarriage it may be beneficial to wait until your iron stores build up. When a planning pregnancy it is always beneficial to do some preconception care. Making sure you are in top physical shape helps ensure a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
From a practical point of view it is helpful to try again after you've experience a period following the miscarriage. This way you can note the first day of your last menstrual period which is very helpful when calculating your estimated due date.
