The pregnancy hormones stay in your body 2 to 3 weeks after miscarriage depending on individuals. The best way to find out that you are completely clean for another pregnancy is through an ultrasound.

Yes, you can get positive pregnancy test after miscariage if your hormones have not gone down completely. As your pregnancy progresses, the hormone level go on increasing.

you can have a miscarriage at any time of pregnancy

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.

Get it confirmed by a doctor, Some preganancy hormones may be still showing up in the test, unless you are one hundred percent it was a miscarrage and not implantation bleeding.

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

I'm wondering the same thing. I ovulated 2 weeks after my miscarriage. I was still spotting heavily. Beacuse I was only 5 weeks at the time of the miscarriage and everything was fine my dr. said to go ahead and start trying. So we did. I spotted lightly for the next 1.5 weeks. Now, 4 weeks later (from the time I ovulated) I am having pregnancy symptoms and a positive HPT. Could it be positive from the miscarriage or a new pregnancy?

The test will show positive for a few weeks after a miscarriage until the hormones have settled. You need to get a ultrasound to be sure.

Yes. It can take several weeks for the hCG to clear from the body. It depends what stage of pregnancy you were at.

Yes, the hCG can remain in the body for up to six weeks after a miscarriage. The tests done by a doctor can show if the level is rising or not. If everything is OK, the levels will be going up.

After a miscarriage you can tell if your pregnant again about 2-3 weeks after the previous pregnancy. Im sorry about your loss. YOu may ovulate about 2 weeks after an early miscarriage so if you have intercourse then you might have a positive test 2 weeks after that.

Yes, if the pregnancy hormones haven´t left your body yet. It can take a few weeks.

Yes, it can take the hormones a couple of months to settle. unless you've had unprotected sex of course, then you could be 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.
