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.

If you still have a positive pregnancy test a week after a suspected miscarriage what does this mean?

It means that there is still the presence of the pregnancy hormone (hCG). Home pregnancy tests give positive results when they detect the presence of hCG. It can take days to several weeks for a woman's hCG levels to return to baseline after a miscarriage; it all depends on how far along she was. Taking home pregnancy tests in the first few weeks after a miscarriage is not a reliable way to check for pregnancy because of all of the false negative results, due to the lingering pregnancy hormone in the woman's system.

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)

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.

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.

What can make a pregnancy test positive if you are not pregnant?

I don't think anything can to be honest. For a pregnancy test to be positive you have to have the HCG hormone in your system, this hormone is only in your system when you are pregnant so if it's positive then i think you are pregnant.

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.

What is the HCG in the female reproductive system?

Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin is pregnancy hormone. Pregnancy tests are designed to detect the presence of the pregnancy hormone called human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG, the hormone produced by the developing placenta) in urine. The hormone hCG is mostly concentrated in the urine that is discharged upon waking up in the morning. This is the best time to use the test. Discover more about HCG in recommended related lik below.

Can a blood test say ur still pregnant after you've just found out your miscarrying I went to the DR to check on my baby cause i was bleeding the blood test said i was still i miscarried that day?

Hcg or the pregnancy hormone stays in your system anywhere from 24 hours to a month after a miscarriage depending on how far along you were and reason for the miscarriage. This can cause false positives on home pregnancy tests and on blood tests.Your Dr should have a made a follow up appointment for you in the next few days to few weeks.

Will an ectopic pregnancy show up on a regular pregnancy test?

Yes. My sister-in-law had an ectopic pregnancy. Pregnancy tests measure the level of HPC (human chorionic gonadotropin) in your system, which is a hormone produced early in pregnancy by the placenta (the sac surrounding the baby). Regardless of the type of pregnancy, a pregnancy test will tell you the correct answer.

How long after having a baby does the hcg pregnancy hormone stay in your system?

The maximum HCG is reached between 9 and 10 weeks and then falls until 18 weeks when it remains level until the end of pregnancy. It then starts falling as soon as the placenta is delivered. I am not certain, but I believe it is negligible after 3 days.

Can vicodin give a false positive on a pregnancy test?

No. Pregnancy tests are looking for hCG - a hormone found in the system of women who are pregnant, or very rarely by certain medical conditions - the test is not sensitive to drugs.

What are the reasons a pregnancy test would show a false positive?

; Chemical Pregnancy : A chemical pregnancy is basically an early miscarriage. Research has shown that half of all first pregnancies end in miscarriage. Due to the high sensitivity of home pregnancy tests, many women catch early pregnancies but end up going on to have their periods due to a chemical pregnancy. :;Evaporation Lines: While technically not a true pregnancy, some pregnancy tests leave a faint evaporation line as the urine crosses the test. This faint very light grey evaporation line in the test area is often interpretted as a positive result. ;Chemical Interference: Drugs that have the pregnancy hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in them can cause incorrect results in home pregnancy tests. The Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in them may be responsible for the false positive pregnancy test. If you have had an HCG shot due to infertilty treatments, you need to be sure the shot is out of your system before you attempt to use early pregnancy tests

Can you have a false positive after a miscarriage?

Yes, but it depends on how soon after the miscarriage. Ask your doctor for sure, but HcG remains in your system for awhile after the miscarriage.

Could you still be pregnant if you have been bleeding with clots but have no pain and your doctor said your cervix was slightly open?

When you are pregnant your cervix should be closed tight, and you shouldn't be bleeding clots. Ask for a series of beta HcG blood tests to confirm or simply take a home pregnancy test. Just to clarify on some comments made about home pregnancy tests. The only definative test is the Beta Hcg taken 1-2days apart. Home pregnancy tests can tell you only if you have the pregnancy hormone in your system not if it is going up. I had positive pregnancy tests for 4 weeks after a miscarriage, but my hcg level was dropping. It is always important to see your ob/gyn if you are having problems or think that you might be pregnant. A urine test is accurate but can also give false hope esspecially if you are having heavy bleeding.
