Suspected mc but still bfp???

Hi ladies,

Had what I would call heavy bleeding at 6 half weeks, fresh red but no clots. Was convinced I was miscarrying. Went to docs but he wouldn't refer me for a scan cos he said there was nothing they could do either way. He said if I had miscarried I would have a negative hpt after 72 hours so if I do one then and it's pos then I'm still pregnant and just had a bleed. It's been that long and I had a definite bfp and my boobs still sore and very tired but I'm still worried. Any similar experiences???? Good or bad??? Thanks x

I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks (confirmed by a scan) and was told to do a home test after 3 weeks and it should be negative. Which makes me think after 3 days it wouldn't necessarily be clear.

Do you have a walk in clinic/minor injuries unit you can go to? You could ask them to book you a scan. Actually, some hospitals let you self-refer to the Early Pregnancy Unit so you could do that.

Your doctor sounds really unhelpful - I'd be pressing for a scan to check. Fingers crossed everything is ok for you.

I'd second everything soundsystem said. I'd be annoyed with your gp for not referring - perfectly reasonable to want to know if you've mc or not.

I thought he was useless too but what can you do? He actually said do u 'feel' pregnant! When I said what do u mean he said most women feel pregnant. I thought yeah fair enough they may do but not exactly medically reliable! There is an emu at local hospital so maybe I will try calling them Monday, I wasn't convinced he knew what he was on about, and being a man just didn't seem to care I wanted reassurance one way or the other. Does anyone know if it's less likely to be a mc cos no clots or is that irrelevant? Thanks x

sorry you're going through this flowers

it took a few weeks for me to get a bfn after an early mc last year, so highly doubtful you'd get one after 3 days. my mc wasn't particularly heavy but did go on for a while, however in this pregnancy (currently 38+4) i also had breakthrough bleeding and several additional bouts of bleeding in the first tri and all was fine...mother nature does like to mess with us!

He's right that they can't 'do' anything, but it doesn't mean you don't want to know for sure! I'd see if you can self-refer to your epu, or try to see a different gp for a referral etc.

best of luck

So ladies, was very worried after ur advice so rang epu who said I need a scan but can't self refer. So spoke to a different doc at my surgery who in more polite words said the doc I seen was talking shit so she referred me for scan. And I am very happy to say that all is well and am now 8 weeks 😀 Sonography the said timing suggests a heavy implantation bleed. Have had a little spotting last few days but brown not fresh blood so assuming that's ok? X
