How long is it good to wait between pregnancies?

Those of you that got pregnant more than once, how long did the doctor recomend you to wait between pregnancies? My dr said about 5-6 months, also a nurse from my job said it's good to wait a while, because some women get pregnant right away and that is not good for my body, I need to recover first. Any other advices? I think waiting about 3-4 months is ok, but maybe it's even better waiting more? like 1/2 year?

My doctor said 1 month, the gyno who did my D&C said 3 months and my doctor changed his mind to in between when I questioned him.

My opinion? If your body is ready to do it it will. Let nature take it's course. Maybe we try to control things too much. I don't know.

I've heard it depends on how long you were PG. My doc always said after an early m/c there's no reason to wait to get PG again. Sometimes after an early m/c you can be more fertile. But after a full term PG, it's best to wait at least 6 months, preferably longer (a year, WIC says 15 months) to make sure you don't deplete your nutritional stores too much. I think it can be bad for your bones and stuff. That makes sense to me.
