Until all the hormones are washed from your body, you can still show positive on an OTC pregnancy test. The earlier you miscarry the sooner the test will become negative as there are fewer hormones in the body.

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.

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 have a miscarriage will you still show pregnant on a home pregnancy test?

If the miscarriage was recent, yes, probably. I took a pregnancy test on the day I started bleeding from my miscarriage and it was positive. The ER docs said that only conformed the presence of pregnancy hormones, not whether it was a viable pregnancy. However, my midwife took blood a week later and advised me to take another pregnancy test at the end of the month to confirm my pregnancy hormones were going away. She said if the test was positive in a month, and I was sure I wasn't pregnant again, to come back in and make sure there wasn't something additionally wrong, a thing called a molar pregnancy. if its an early miscarriage there may be no hormones left after a week of bleeding and it will come back negative.


If its a tubal pregnancy will it show positive on a home pregnancy test?

If you had a miscarriage could you take a home pregnancy test to confirm it?

Yes. After you have miscarriage, your hCG levels will begin to drop dramatically. Depending upon how far along you were, will depend upon when a home pregnancy test will no longer detect your hCG levels and show positive for pregnancy. Eventually though after your hCG levels have dropped enough, a pregnancy test will show up negative. You should still consult your doctor. He/she may want to provide you with extra care or perform a D and C and clean your utuerus to prevent infection.

Does your body still think it pregnant during a miscarriage?

Yes. It take some time until the hormones catch up and go back to normal. During that time the test will still show positive and you might have pregnancy symptoms. It's a bit cruel but that's how we function.
