Losing the plot so thought I'd ask on here! I'm a regular lurker but don't post often.
I miscarried at 5+4 on 10-15 Oct, scanned 15 th & had blood in my uterus but hcg was at 12 which was a negative on a preg test, told no further action needed. I bled fri-weds, had some spotting after sex a week ago.
I've been doing ovulation tests to find out what's going on and they've been + for 4 days, I randomly decided to do a preg test this morning & it has a very very faint pos line. Now I'm confused if this is remaining hcg from my miscarriage two weeks ago or potentially a new preg??
I'm going to speak to my gp about bloods to check hcg tomorrow but in the meantime I'm googling myself mad!!
Wouldn't you have to have ovulated (and dtd) basically the day after your miscarriage, in order to now have a positive test? (An early bfp might show from day 10 post ovulation.) I suspect it is residual hormone, but to know for sure you'd need further hgc tests - this would confirm it as they'd either be going up, or down, over a period of a few days. This is very unsettling for you just now Very sorry for your loss.
I don't actually see how I could be preg again so soon. I'm assuming my hcg has dropped from 12 from two weeks ago though. I had sex fri (10th) began bleeding, bled slightly heavier over the weekend, tested sat and had a very very faint pos so knew I was miscarrying, tested tues after bleeding turnt to spotting and was a definite negative. Scanned weds and blood in uterus, hcg 12. That was on the 15th. Had sex on 10th & 20th. It's a mystery and I'm clueless?!
After the internal scan on weds (15th) I passed some clots and black blood, then had brown spotting for the afternoon. Nothing since then apart from small amount of spotting after sex on the 20th. Maybe I haven't passed it all but it's strange I had a negative on the tues before my scan, and now pos? I'll speak with the gp tomorrow see if I can get bloods done
I got pregnant immediately after a miscarraige that happened at about 5 1/2 weeks. It took about 2 weeks for the miscarraige to be totally over and I had a negative test at that stage. Two weeks later a positive pregnancy test and I am now 13 weeks. It can happen, in fact you are more fertile than usual for up to 6 months after a miscarraige (or so I have read anyway).
It does seem very early for you but I would leave it a few more days (if you can, I know it's not easy) and test again. Hopefully you'll get a stronger line and then you'll know for sure. Best of luck!
You could be pg 6 days post ovulation, but I've never heard of a pg test that would show positive at 6 days. I think you will hurt yourself more if you keep thinking this way tbh - get blood tests to know for sure.
I'm not convincing myself I'm preg, just mystified by it, there is a 7% of pos tests at 6dpo, unless I ovu sooner, I dunno! I've phoned the gp, they're calling me back for a phone consultation, I need bloods and the nurse does them so once I've spoke with the gp I can book in with the nurse
I've been away for a few days, got back this evening, peed on a preg test and an ov stick and both have faint pos still. I think it's hcg from the miscarriage and my body is all over the place but time will tell
It seems strange that you would still have lingering hcg after a miscarriage at 5weeks op. I only say that because I miscarried twice at around 5-6weeks and my hcg levels were back to normal within days. Definitely go see your doctor again.
Is it possible that you have not passed everything yet, could retention make a pg test positive? Sometimes women need a procedure to make sure everything has come out. I know you were scanned already but it was really close to the actual miscarriage wasn't it.
