Positive pregnancy tests 3 weeks after miscarrige

I had a miscarrige 22 days ago and still getting positive pregnancy tests.

I started bleeding when I was 10 weeks pregnancy but the baby was very small 4/5 weeks in a much larger sac. Over the next 6 days I passed lots of clots etc and what I think was the sac just over 2 weeks ago.

I had a scan 4 days after I stopped bleeding and they confirmed there were no retained products.

Is it normal for the pregnancy test to still be positive? I am also getting some signs of ovulation ewcm and cramping, but is this possible with a positive pregnancy test?

Sorry for your loss. I've just left the EPU after having a MC confirmed and they told me to test 3 weeks after the bleeding stops. They said it takes that long for all the hormones and accompanying symptoms (bloating, tenderness etc) to go. So it sounds like you may need a few more days still before testing again. If it's over 3 weeks since the sac passed, then maybe book back in with the EPU or doctor to be checked.

Sorry for your loss flowers

I still got a positive test until five weeks later and then I got a positive opk ten days later but my bbt shows I didn't ovulate that cycle at all.

Just to add, I had surgical management so didn't have any additional clots and my bleeding only lasted a week.

I'm abit confused too. I had a MC on 10/07 I was only 4 weeks if that by time bleeding she said my HCG was 55. I bled for 3 days.

I then started bleeding again on 22nd? My opks had started fading but have been positive for the last 5 days. I've still got preg symptoms. I wonder if I've caught again but if I test then surely I will still pick up from original preg?

I'm not sure what to do? Whether to call epu for a blood test? I'm getting so impatient not knowing!

I got a negative test this morning smile but I feel awful so dizzy and sick. Presuming this is just another hormonal thing!

Hugs mcbaby,

I still feel awful, 17 days later. Exhausted, run down. I hope it gets better!

I had previously really long cycles so ordered Angus castus to see if this will help rebalance me. Fingers crossed!!!
