Hi, I'm 33 years old, have 1 DD now 3 going on 13. Happily married ttc #2, problem is I have full blown PCOS and Endometriosis, started having a few fluttery feelings about 3 weeks ago, so did pg test. There was a very very faint line, so did another test a few days later, no line. Did another test a few days later, faint line made an appointment with my GP and she said I was pregnant and to go away and come back in 2 weeks time, which is tomorrow. Did another test this am and again negative. Last month I had a period which came 44 days after my last one started. On day 2 I was crippled in agony, in tears, full works and my DH didn't know what the hell had happened. After a couple of hours and 2 lots of Nurofen the pain went away. Now my DS is telling me that this could have been a miscarriage as the hormone that makes a pg test positive (the hcg) is in your system upto 7-12 weeks after a miscarriage and can make an incorrect pg test result. Does anyone know if this is right, or is she completely off her rocker...

Hi Malinki, I think the hcg rises by doubling every 48 hours after conception. When you miscarry it falls at the same rate ie halving every 2 days. So, I suppose there could be have been a tiny amount left in your blood though if you had a very early miscarriage I would have thought any hcg would disappear quickly. Hope that helps a bit.

Hi Malinki! (from the kids books Slinky Malinki by any chance?) I can't really answer your questions you posted, but I think it's better if you don't think of them as miscarriages, and just take each cycle as it comes. I do know that some tests can be unreliable or not as sensitive as others, particularly the cheaper ones . Let us know how you get on at your doctor's - isn't necessarily bad news yet.
I'm ttc#2 as well, dd is 2.6 right now, but not quite going on 13 yet!!

Hi, Hana you are right (Slinki Malinki - fantastics books, I use Malinki all the time - real name Sharon is it any wonder).
Had my urine pg test back from the hospital, Negative a big fat no no. Still no bleeding or pain, so I don't know what to do now. Going to see my GP again tonight, any thoughts anyone!!!
