Positive Pregnancy test after D&C

Just after others experience after a D&C?
I found out I had mmc at my 12 week scan. Did two rounds of medical management which didn’t work so had to have a D&C. Had the D&C on 29th September was told to wait 3 weeks to take a pregnancy test. It came back positive. Called the hospital advised to wait another test in a week and if still positive then they will scan me.
Has anyone else experienced this? What happened? Did you have to have another D&C.
I was asked on the phone whether there was a possibility that I could be pregnant, which I don’t think could be. But has this also happened to anyone?

I'm so so sorry for your loss. I can give you my experience, I was still getting positive tests after my D&C. I was told to wait one week after my period to see if the tests were still positive. They were (albeit) fainter and a scanned showed up a lot of retained tissue left.
I asked for a hysterscopy, but they gave me tablets (third time) and I went back the following week. I had to beg for a hysterscopy, I mean really fight for it. It was done and there was tissue there that had calcified and causing ecoli.
I would suggest ringing the EPAU in the morning, asking for a scan and see what comes out of that conversation

Thank you, I’ve rung them and I’m off for a scan tomorrow. I just hope that my HCG levels are still high although I just want to be normal again! Thank you sharing your experience.

The same happened to me so they booked me in for a scan. No retained tissue but it took 10 weeks for me to get a negative pregnancy test. They just seemed to go down really slowly. Fingers crossed it happens a lot sooner for you x
