It depends. I know this is likely not what someone who is hoping to be pregnant after a miscarriage wants to hear but there isn't a definitive answer since it depends when the miscarriage happened (how far along was the woman?) and also how long it takes for the hCG (the pregnancy hormone detected by pregnancy tests) to leave her system.

If a woman is wondering if a positive test is indicating the hormones left by a miscarriage or is a sign of a new pregnancy, she should go to her doctor or midwife for a quantitative (not qualitative) blood test or an ultrasound. A quantitative blood test will measure how much hCG is in her system while a qualitative blood test will do the same thing a urine test does -- say whether or not there is any hormone there. An ultrasound will examen the contents of the uterus to see if there is an embryonic sac or missed particles from the miscarriage.

If you have had a miscarriage before can a home pregnancy test show negative and actually be positive?

Having a previous miscarriage wouldn't change the outcome of a pregnancy test. ~pawsalmighty It may actually read a positive result if you miscarried early enough before. The length depends on how long you were pregnant. This is because your hormone levels are dropping but still exist; therefor a + reading will show up.


Are you still pregnant if you were told you had a miscarriage but you are still showing?

It depends how long ago your miscarriage was. As you don't start showing until 14-15 weeks it is possible you had a miscarriage, one of twins and you are still pregnant with the other. Take a pregnancy test if it was more than 4 weeks ago.
