Having a previous miscarriage wouldn't change the outcome of a pregnancy test.

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.

No, if you're having a miscarriage, the pregnancy test will still be positive as you're passing the pregnancy.

Will pregnancy test still read positive after miscarriage?

User Avatar

I guess it depends how long after a miscarriage you test. But I have read that you will remain with a positive up to nine weeks after a miscarriage... but many times not that long.

no probably not. What probably happened was a very early miscarriage. The pregnancy test stays positive for two weeks after a miscarriage. sorry,honey joymaker rn

A pregnancy test can remain positive for 2 weeks after a miscarriage. Sometimes longer.

Once you have a positive diagnosis of pregnancy then losing the pregnancy is considered a miscarriage. ~pawsalmighty

Yes, because the pregnancy hormones are still in your body even after a miscarriage.

If you're having a miscarriage, your pregnancy test will be positive. Take a pregnancy test, and contact your health care provider if it's positive.

Pregnancy is rare when using the contraceptive implant. If you had a miscarriage recently, your pregnancy test will be positive.

after 10 days miscarriage pregnancy test is positive. what's my problem?

User Avatar

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.

Yes you can. Pregnancy tests can come out positive weeks after a miscarriage. but you should still get checked by a doctor because you may have just been bleeding. you can't tell for sure if you had a miscarriage unless you see a doctor.

User Avatar

Not necessarily. The hormones that make a pregnancy test read positive stay in your body for a little while after a miscarriage.

User Avatar

No , but a negative test can be a false positive .

User Avatar

If you started to bleed soon after, then there is a possibility that you could of had a miscarriage. Pregnancy tests are not always acurrate though and that could of been the problem. If it was a miscarriage then I would go and see the docter, because you should get cleaned out nad the docter will tell you if you really were pregnant or not.

It can detect pregnancy as long as the HCG hormone is in your body. So anytime during pregnancy. If you get a positive test then a negative go see a doctor because a miscarriage is possible.

User Avatar

Yes, if the miscarriage was recent then your hormone levels are still not back to normal and it could cause a false positive result on a pregnancy test.

User Avatar

if the home pregnancy test reads negative then there was no pregnancy, ive had 2misscarages and all tests read positive even 2wks after. you are probably just suffering from a bad period but if it gets worse speak to your gp. hope that helps

Absolutely! While birth control does not affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test, the body will still have some pregnancy hormone (hCG) that will show up in blood or urine pregnancy tests even after a miscarriage. As the levels drop, the test will eventually become negative.
