the hormone can stay in your system for up to 8 weeks. this can make a PT show up positive.

Speaking from my own experiences. I had two miscarriages. Your hormones should return to normal within a week or 2. My hormones returned to normal within a week.

Occasionally the baby dies a while before the miscarriage and the hormones will have almost disappeared by the time you actually miscarry. It all depends on the reason for the miscarriage and most of the time no-one knows the reason.

Why would you still have sickness after a miscarriage?

You can still have pregnancy symptoms after a miscarriage as the hcg pregnancy hormone is most likely still in your system. After a miscarrige it can take 4-6 weeks for the hcg levels to get back to their normal range.

How long does it take for the pregnancy hormone to leave your system after a miscarriage?

Hello. I am very sorry for your miscarriage. I hope you are coping well and doing ok. I know how difficult it is experiencing a miscarriage so I wish you well and be strong. It will get better. Honestly. When a woman experiences the miscarriage, once the Embryo has been expelled from your system, HCG decreases daily until there is no HCG left in your system. It usually takes about two weeks for HCG to be completely eradicated from your system but it can sometimes take as long as four weeks. It is also not unheard of for women to experience pregnancy/light pregnancy symptoms after having a miscarriage for four weeks. Good luck and take care.

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.

When taking a pregnancy test what will it say if you had a miscarriage?

Pregnancy tests simply "look" for the presence of a hormone that is present when a pregnancy has occurred. After a miscarriage, a pregnancy test may remain positive for a while until all of that hormone has disappeared below the level the test needs to be positive. A blood (serum) pregnancy test (that you can obtain at a physician's office) can tell about how far along a pregnancy is, and this can be compared to how far along the person should be; the test results will drop in number over time if a miscarriage occurs until it reaches 0. How long it takes the hormone to leave the system is highly variable from several days to several weeks. Hope this helps! Dr. B.

Is it possible to be pregnant if your period was two weeks late with blood clots but when you took a hpt it was positive?

it is likely that you had a spontaneous miscarriage, which means you were pregnant but miscarried and that's why your hpt came out positive (the pregnancy hormone needs a while to get out of your system after having miscarried)

Can getting a tattoo cause a miscarriage?

No, tattoo's don't cause miscarriage. Doctors suggest you wait until after having the baby due to your compromised immune system during pregnancy can delay healing or cause infection.

How long after a miscarriage will a pregnancy test still show positive?

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 had a miscarriage 2 days ago and tested positive in pregnecy testis it right?

I'm sorry but probably not, hcg th pregnancy hormone stays in your system for at least a couple of weeks and can give you a false positive.

You just had a baby 4 months ago if you take a pregnancy test will that show the pregnancy hormone for this last pregnancy?

Hi ,in my own personal experience the pregnancy hormone would not be in your system unless maybe you`re pregnant again you should see your g.p.

How do you no if you have had a miscarriage?

A indication of a misscarriage is a confirmed pregnancy folowed by bleeding and abdominal pain. If you suspect you are having a miscarriage, see your Doctor within 24 hours for a blood test to check the HCG in your system. You will need to have the blood test performed 2 days later - if the HCG has decreased, you are most likely having a miscarriage. You will also require an abdominal scan or a trans-vaginal scan to see if you have expelled the foetus.

How long after having an ectopic pregnancy removed does the hcg hormone stay in your system?

If the ectopic pregnancy has been terminated (either medically or naturally) it should take around 2-5 weeks for your body to realise what has happen and ovulate again.

Does pregnancy test say positive if you misscarriage?

Yes it can. hCG can take 24 hours to a month to leave your system completely depending on how far along the pregnancy was and why the miscarriage happened. If you are unsure if you had a miscarriage or feel that you may still be pregnant consult your Dr as soon as possible.
