Hi ladies, I hope I am posting in the right bit...I am pretty sure I have just had a chemical pregnancy (2 faint lines on first response tests at 13 and 14 dpo then af like cramps and started bleeding today and it looks abit like clots). If this has happened to anyone here do you know if I need to go to the doctors or will I be ok just waiting for the bleeding to stop? Thankyou in advance

Im so sorry Coi :-( , Im not sure what you need to do but you could always call your GP and ask. Take care of yourself x

You don't need to do anything, you will have a period as normal and then carry on TTC as usual x

Hi Coi,

I had one also. Nothing you can do as passmethewine said. You will just have your period and carry on TTC after like normal.
You can ring the doctor but they won't say much at all. I just said it in passing when I went next time. Doctor said no way to tell as it was so early but was getting negative pregnancy test by then also.

With my chemical my period lasted a bit longer think 10days, one big clot then heavy and painful.
The next cycle I got pregnant and now 18 weeks.

Fingers crossed for you xx

Thanks so much ladies. I lost my baby at 17 weeks in October and it doesn't hurt anywhere near like that did but it's still so disheartening :-( fingers crossed for the next one. Thanks again xxx

I am so sorry Coi - this is exactly like my story. I has a miscarriage at 12 weeks and then5 months later I had a chemical pregnancy. My doctor simply said so long as you don't have an infection of strange smelling discharge you don't need to do anything other than be kind to yourself.

I hope you are ok and have someone to hug and care for you.

If this helps 2 months later I fell pregnant again and had a lovely baby girl.

Sending you hugs and best wishes.

So sorry for your losses. I had a CP. it was useful for me to tell the GP as I had two other MCs and it meant since I had 3 MCs on record, I have been consultant led this time (am 20weeks) and they also did tests to see if there was a reason for them (there wasn't). flowers x
