Talk to your OB MD about this issue especially if this OB MD is not aware of your history. ...Read more

Miscarriage(7 Weeks) Nov21,heavy bleeding & spotting until Nov29. Had(+)preg test Dec9. Obgyn withUSG confirmed new preg Dec10. hCG drop_am I pregnant?

Follow up: If you have a positive pregnancy test, you should see a doctor right away. You need to confirm that your miscarriage was completed, and not an ectopic or a continuing pregnancy. It seems unlikely that you could have a positive test from a new pregnancy so soon after miscarriage. You expect to ovulate no sooner than 2 weeks after the loss, and the test usually doesn't turn positive for 10 days. ...Read more
