I had the surgical management for miscarriage 2 weeks ago today. I did a pregnancy test on Monday just out of curiosity to see if my hormones were back to normal and it was positive, so far I have resisted testing again as I don't want to upset myself and will test at the weekend, but I just wondered how long it usually takes to get a negative test after the surgical management? I guess I am just paranoid that they haven't removed everything as i'm still bleeding lightly too. Seeing my GP on monday.

Hi. I'm so sorry for your loss. It does take some time.

I've had 3 mc's and my time to get a negative tests was as follows.

Mc 1 - 1 week
Mc 2 had ERPC and was negative after 2 weeks
Mc 3 had ERPC and negative after 4 weeks.

It's so hard to keep seeing positive but if you are waiting to try again it does need to be negative

Depends how far along you were. It can take up to 5 weeks.

Sorry for your lost pregnancy.

It's not quite the same but it had a tfmr at 22 weeks. I didn't test bit was advised not to for at least 6 weeks as I could get a 'false positive' (as in positive from our lost dd2 rather than a new pregnancy)

It may take a while but it reLly depends how far you were
