This happened to me with my 2nd mmc. I wanted to miscarry naturally and for two weeks had very heavy bleeding. I had to go back for a re-scan after two weeks and fully expected to be told that my womb was empty. However, the baby was still there and my pregnancy sac had carried on growing. My doctor described it as (and this upset me soooooo much so apologies in advance) as a "half-life", ie my body still thought it needed to nourish a pregnancy so carried on trying to support it. After a further 3 days I opted for a D&C.
That said, even with complete miscarriages (where everything is expelled as expected) women can still get BFP's for up to a month as it only takes a miniscule amount of pregnancy hormone to show on an HPT. Keep an eye on it and don't hesitate to call your doctor if you're worried. Take care.xx
I had a D&C and then had my first AF 6 weeks later. I had a hysteroscopy right after my first AF where they inserted a small camera into my uterus to look for polyps. It was very clear that there was no tissue left. I had blood drawn after all of this, and my hpt was still not down to 0. I was at a level 6. It can definitely take some time to get a BFN, even after you get AF.
