how many weeks following a miscarriage is usual? im interested in others experiences? I miscarried 2 weeks ago and bleeding has stopped and pregnancy symptoms have disappeared, shall i check yet or leave a while longer?

Mine took 3 weeks or so. Horrible isn't it sad

Mine also took 3 weeks, or maybe even a little bit more, despite the bleeding finishing after not long at all. I kept doing test after test, wasted so much money on them, so I think it might be worth waiting another week or so to save you some money. Really sorry you are going through this, it's horrible, but when you see that negative on the pregnancy test, hopefully you will feel like you can move on.

thanks, I will wait a week i think otherwise could spend a small fortune, I just want it to feel over!

About two weeks for me, both times. Don't waste too much money on tests though, especially if you are still seeing positives as it is a heartbreaking way to spend money. Get some very cheap tests (Asda have some that are 1.44 for three behind the chemist counter) and just do one a week.

Very sorry for your loss and I hope you see that negative soon. It isn't nice but it does mark the whole awful thing being physically over and it does help with the moving on process.

I had a mc 18 days ago,I had to go to the hospital 10 days after 1st scan and they did a test which was very faint,they told me to do another 1 in a week (which is tomorrow) and if its still pos to phone them,they gave me some testers to take home,Im hoping it will be neg tomorrow so I can start to move on.

Sorry for your loss and hope everything goes ok in the future.

Mine took over 5 weeks too. You can get really cheap pg tests if you google, if that helps. I had high levels of hormones- right for the 11 weeks I was even though the baby died at 7 weeks so I guess that's why.
