I'm currently miscarrying what seems to be a chemical pregnancy. I had several both positive and negative pregnancy test results over the last week and I started bleeding yesterday (day 31 of my cycle).
I spoke to a doctor on NHS 24 who advised me to see how things go and if the bleeding continues to consider it a miscarriage. He said to do a pregnancy test next saturday and if it's negative, leave it, but if it's still positive to get back in touch. I think it's highly unlikely to be positive but wonder if perhaps I should still do one to make sure the hormones are down...?
My other question is, if the bleeding comes to an end this week, should I just carry on as normal or do I need to be checked out to make sure everything's gone? I know for a fact that if I'd not done any early pregnancy tests I would be none the wiser and would have thought this was just my period.
hi thank you for responding. there seems to be a mixture of opinions about when to ttc. I'm really worried it's going to happen again if I don't wait but your story is encouraging. congratulations. I take it that the subsequent pregnancy was ok?
That's excellent news Hazle. I"ve read a lot of women seem to conceive quickly after. I've just had a negative test back today so hoping to get back to ttc (once the spotting has stopped.....) and "conditions" are right. Still quite worried about it happening again though but I suppose there is only one way to find out.
