Just looking for some advice from someone who has had a chemical pregnancy before. I have had 2 mcs before. First was 2 years ago, 2nd was beginning of october. I was 7 weeks and 5 weeks with them. I got a positive pregnancy test last tuesday, af was due on the Friday and she turned up right on time after having the positive test. I am still testing and getting faint positives, my question is how long should it take the hcg to leave my body? With both mcs my levels were much higher but went back to 0 within 2-3 days so a bit confused as to why it's taking longer with a chemical considering af arrived the day she should have. My boobs are also still really painful also.

Sorry to hear about your MCs and potential chemical. I had a chemical one in January. Was getting weak positives for about 3/4 days before I got pain and bleeding at 4+3. I didn't keep testing because I knew it was game over but they were so so so faint and not getting stronger. I can't imagine they'd have stayed positive for long.
The bleed was heavy and painful, more so than a normal period even though it was only 3 days late.

@Wanderer1 Thanks for replying. Sorry to hear you have had a chemical also, it's awful. With my af coming on the day it was supposed to I just cant understand why I'm still getting faint lines. I am still bleeding now and like you i felt the bleeding was a little heavier than a period for me. Not really sure how long i should let it go on for. Never had this problem with my mc's and my levels were much much higher.

Are they test you’ve used before? I can see the lines on your pictures but on the photos they don’t look like they have colour really, are they pinker one real life?
I know it’s really really had but all you can do is wait a week and retest. Unless you start loosing lots of blood (I think they say fill a pad in an hour) then you will need doctor ASAP

Yeah there is some colour to them in real life just hard to capture on camera. My bleeding is very light today so I assume itll be gone by tomorrow and it has been the same length as a normal period would be for me. Just hate the inbetween stage 😔
