Hi bakingtins spoke on another thread prev how you doing ? I am awaiting AF since mc if a 28 day cycle then was due AF yday still no sign as yet I had negative preg test tues week after mc tues 23rd but one before that was the 13th so confused used the cleArblue ovulation and had flashing smily for 8 days and have up then tried one 3 days later and got a blank circle ! I'm thinking I didn't ovulate too although not sure why had high fertility for so long

Chocolate frog and pizza queen so sorry for your losses x

thanks Baking. I got a negative HPT today so fingers crossed my AF will follow.

It's taken me 3 weeks each time ( after MC at 8-10 weeks) to get a negative HPT and I've had AF 5 weeks after MC. I don't think I ovulate that cycle. Once you get a negative hopefully not too long until AF.

Thanks pizza. It's been 3 weeks since ERPC and i'm still getting a faint positive. It's comforting to know it took others a long time for their HCG levels to fall. I didn't realise you could a period so quickly once they reached zero, I'd assumed it would be another month after that for a period.

yes your levels need to drop before you will ovulate.

everyone's different as to when they get their first period after miscarriage but I got mine 1 week after my hcg levels dropped to 0. but it took 5 weeks from starting bleeding for my hcg to reach 0.

Do I need to have HCG levels below 5 before my body realises i'm not pregnant and then resumes a normal cycle? Would a period follow on average a month after HCG levels reach zero? Any advice would be great.
