How long did it take for your test to go negative?


Hi all,

As the title says, just wondering how long after your losses it was until your pregnancy test went back to negative? I'm dreading having to do one and see it still positive. The hospital have told me to do one 10 days after.

It took 21 days for mine to go negative after a 9wk loss, not nice seeing a BFP or a BFN, but now i know its all out my system

My doctor ordered blood work for me every two weeks after my miscarriage, so I never used a home pregnancy test. I'm glad for that, because I really didn't want to see a BFP or BFN. If I had been testing myself, I probably would have gotten a BFN within 2 weeks since my HCG was down to 14 by then (many tests only detect the hormone after 25 I think). My HCG didn't go down to zero (less than 5 - mine was 3) until 4 weeks after my miscarriage. As hard as it is to see that BFP or BFN, it's good to know where you stand. I'm still waiting for my first period since my miscarriage 6 weeks and 3 days ago. I took a test last Sunday just as a reference point since my husband and I have had unprotected sex, but it was negative. So who knows what's going on with my body. I'm so tired of waiting for something to happen. I don't feel like I can really move on until I get that first period or a new pregnancy. Just trying to be patient...

It can take a while...Mine took almost 6 weeks, though I was pregnant with twins and lost at 11+4

Hi, I had my ERPC on Dec 23rd and was testing positive until this Monday (10th Jan). although i had stopped bleeding on Mon 3rd. I thought i was back to normal, but was still testing +ve. I had a big bleed last Saturday (8th) where i passed lots of clots, and since then my tests have been getting lighter, and are now BFN. so i believe that the reason it took so ong for my tests to go -ve was because it had not all cleared.
Hope this makes sence and helps xxx

hiya it took me 2 weeks. I became obsessive about testing - i don't think i will every wish for a BFN that hard again. I'm getting AF symptoms now which usually start 1 week before AF so if she comes next week it will be a normal cycle (time wise). Hope you are doing ok? Are you back at work?

Ahh thats good then. Fingers crossed you do fall straight back into a normal cycle. I'm due back at work on Monday, so it will have been 4 whole days since it actually happened. I feel ok in myself, tbh it doesnt really seem real atm. But my bleeding is still quite bad and I'm still losing fairly big clots, so if it hasnt slowed down a bit by Monday I'll see about seeing my GP and signing me off for a few more days. My office isnt exactly the easiest to be in when you need to dash to the loo every hour.
How are you now? Has all your bleeding stopped? xx

4 day goodness thats quick to go back to work I was off 2 weeks after and just about felt ready to go back. Take care of yourself and don't rush back. I hardly bled at all apart from the actual day in hospital. I was less than a period and I didn't have clots I stopped bleeding after 6 days. Everyone is so different tho I really expected to bleed more. I am feeling not too bad now even though it was only 3 weeks ago it feels like a lifetime ago. I still makes me sad when I think about it and what might have been but i'm looking forward to trying again next month. How are you feeling?
