Is this normal???


Hi ladies not sure if this belongs here. I tested positive at the beginning of December, sadly I miscarried on the 27th of December at 6w5d it was quite horrific and the worst experience Ive had...Im gunna cut to the chase the hospital asked me to test in 2 weeks and if it was positive to go back to the hospital. Well I tested today 10days after and my test is still a blaring positive. Is this normal?

Yes it can be very normal, it sometimes takes a while for the hcg to leave completely and tests are so sensitive these days that they pick up on very small amounts. Did they scan you after you miscarried?

Oh ok thank you, no they didn’t scan me. They said from what I had described and the pain that I was in that it was a miscarriage and to test again in two weeks and the test should be negative.?

I dont think id have been happy with them just writing off the pregnancy without doing a scan or bloodwork. Especially considering you were in pain, they should have scanned to rule out ectopic.
Lots of people bleed in pregnancy for reasons other than miscarriage. Of course, I'm not wanting to get your hopes up, but I'd definitely be asking for a scan.

Id had a scan a week prior to the miscarriage because Id had shoulder pain and some spotting so they thought it was ectopic. The scan showed a sac in the right place and some free fluid I had a scan booked for the 2nd for a follow up but when I rang them to say Id been bleeding and lost huge clots they didnt seem phased just said test again in 2 weeks and the test should be negative and also cancelled my scan. My morning sickness has disappeared and Im not feeling pregnant anymore but the test just seemed very in your face still.

You need another scan. It's not uncommon to still test positive though. My last mc my hcg was still at 17 6 weeks post natural mc.

I think it's really bad practice of them to have cancelled the scan. Maybe try testing again in a couple of days see if the lines got lighter and if not get back on to them?

I personally thought that they would have wanted to scan and atleast check. But they didn’t seem interested. I’ll give it a few more days and if the lines haven’t faded I’ll ring the epu.

Well I rang up for advice and said to them about my scan and they said dont worry about the scan well cancel it. So I feel like Im in limbo. I had a mc earlier in the year and my tests where negative by now.
