Miscarriage is a common problem in pregnancy. Chlamydia does not appear to increase the risk of miscarriage. However, it could happen with or without chlamydia infection.

If it's a miscarriage, you'll have a positive pregnancy test. But bleeding isn't normally a sign of pregnancy, and you didn't mention being pregnant. It sounds like sex and its consequences are causing you a great deal of stress. Consider abstaining for at least a while as you get control of your health.

Yes. This is because it takes a while for your hCG levels (the hormone detected by home pregnancy tests) to drop low enough to show a negative, especially if you were very far along. If you think you are having miscarriage contact your doctor right away and go the the ER.

After a miscarriage and home test is still positive is it possible that you are still pregnant?

Wait a few weeks to take a pregnancy test after a miscarriage. It will take a while for the pregnancy hormone to get out of your system, so a test will show up positive even if you are not pregnant. Hope this helps. And I am sorry for your loss.
