The pregnancy hormone disappears very quickly. Sometimes it is gone before you even know you are miscarrying.

If you think you are about two weeks pregnant and had a once off heavy bleeding and the pregnancy test showsis positive does that mean you had a miscarriage?

It is possible, but the bleeding could also have been from implantation bleeding. A pregnancy test will show positive for a while after a miscarriage because your body has not rid itself of the HCG (pregnancy hormone) levels yet. The further along you were, the longer a pregnancy test will show positive. I would still be on the lookout for any symptoms of pregnancy, continue taking your prenatal vitamins (or at least folic acid), refrain from alcohol and tobacco and caffeine then in a couple weeks take another test and see. Or you can go to the doctor to either confirm pregnancy or miscarriage.

If you mean "miscarriage", it is when the baby dies and is expelled from the body, usually early on in the pregnancy.

Should a pregnancy test be positive 4 weeks after miscarriage having started a period?

You can still be tested positive after a miscarriage and a period. A pregnancy test is based on the levels of hormone you have in your body. It might not have gone back to normal. And your bleeding can be caused from the miscarriage itself and doesn't necessarily mean that is a period. Check again in a week or two and then ask your doctor if it still shows up positive just to make sure that you really aren't pregnant.

At what value of hcg indicates pregnancy?

at any value! hcg is a hormone only produced by a pregnant or recently pregnant woman...that is to say is she had a miscarraige she could still be carring the hormone in her body but it will decreases over time instead of increase as it does with a normal pregnancy. Well, I had a miscarriage and the obgyn attending me said that an hcg level of 5 or below is considered a negative reading for a pregnancy. Therefore, once you reach that level, the pregnancy is definitely over.
