    Hi all - I miscarried at 8+2 4 weeks ago and was told by my doctors to take a test after 3 weeks to make sure it was complete. I put the test off until yesterday as I didnt want to risk seeing 2 pink lines if the HGC levels were still high enough to be picked up.....but i've done the test and a strong line appeared immediately.

    Has anyone else experienced anything similar this long after a miscarriage?

    :cry:

    I bled for just under 2 weeks and didn't DTD with OH until 2 weeks ago and we're using contraception (decided to go back to WTT until we have moved house) so i think it's really unlikely. I've looked it up on the internet and some people have said they were getting positives for up to 2 months afterwards...but I thought that would be really unlikely as levels drop so quickly after the miscarriage??

    Hi

    I m/c 2 weeks ago and am still going for blood tests to monitor hcg levels as they are not dropping very quickly. I went yesterday and they were 50 which would still show on a hpt. I think it's horrible of them to tell you to 2"just take a test". I think these things can take a while to get back to normal. I've gotta go again in a week.

    xx

    I had a D&C two weeks ago, and had strong lines today when I tested. I had a partial molar though, so I guess I should expect this. I'm going back for blood work on Monday to test HCG levels :(
