Is it normal after a miscarriage that the pregnancy symptoms go away and then come back? We have not had sex at all

Hormones: There are hardly any symptoms of pregnancy that are not also felt with periods or other times of hormonal fluctuations. You are not pregnant. Your body is recovering.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Over 8 weeks late, for second period after a suspected miscarriage ( +2 miscarriages) I have pregnancy symptoms but negative hpt. Could I be pregnant?

Over 8 weeks late, for second period after a suspected miscarriage ( +2 miscarriages) I have pregnancy symptoms but negative hpt. Could I be pregnant?

Unlikely: If you did the test correctly and it was negative 8 weeks after missed period, you are not pregnant. You may hormonal imbalance that is causing symptoms. Since you have missed two periods, it would be prudent to see your doctor for an evaluation. You may consult this site for info on the topic. http://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/menstruation/conditioninfo/Pages/causes.aspx

Cycle reset...: ...and you ovulated--in proximity to an unprotected sexual encounter. Only condoms or BCPs reliably reduce risk. Good luck!

My ob told me I have a pending miscarriage. I'm not showing any signs of a miscarriage and am still having pregnancy symptoms. IS he wrong?

My ob told me I have a pending miscarriage. I'm not showing any signs of a miscarriage and am still having pregnancy symptoms. IS he wrong?

Probably not: It depends on how he made that determination. Most likely, he is following BHCG levels and they are not rising appropriately or falling. you need to spas, him to explain why he said this. If he called it a threatened miscarriage, though, it doesn't men for sure you will. Again, you need to ask him for more information.

I : I am sorry that you are going through all of that. That is a wide variety of symptoms. The best advice would be to seek out a low cost or no cost clinic in your area. The best start may be to start at planned parenthood who could evaluate your abnormal periods and discharge, and could refer you to another low cost or no cost provider for assessment of your other symptoms. There are providers who will help you so please be sure to start calling to be seen.

When will pregnancy symptoms stop after a miscarriage?

When will pregnancy symptoms stop after a miscarriage?

A few weeks: After a complete spontaneous miscarriage, the pregnancy hormones should be gone and the uterus back to normal size a few weeks at most. If bleeding, pain, or pregnancy symptoms last longer, it's possible there have been complications and you should see your doctor.

If my pregnancy symptoms are becoming absent and I'm only 8 weeks am I at risk for a miscarriage ?

If my pregnancy symptoms are becoming absent and I'm only 8 weeks am I at risk for a miscarriage ?

Miscarriage : Absent any bleeding and cramping, the fact that some of your early pregnancy symptoms are improving does not signal impending doom. Enjoy the break, and should you develop heavy bleeding accompanied by bad cramping seek care

Miscarried 16 days ago had unprotected sex 4days later feeling pregnancy symptoms but test was negative?

Miscarried 16 days ago had unprotected sex 4days later feeling pregnancy symptoms but test was negative?

Ovulation: After a miscarriage ovulation occurs 14-28 days later. Intercourse 4 days after would be too soon for another pregnancy. The earliest a pregnancy test might be positive would be if you ovulated and conceived at 14 days post miscarriage and missed a period at 28 days.

I've had 2 pos pregnancy tests, my dates show 9wks but i'm showing lot. My symptoms have waned. I've had 3 loses, dya think i've miscarried?

Ultrasound?: It sounds like you're pregnant. If you had a recent ultrasound and it showed a heartbeat, that's an excellent sign, as risk of miscarriage drops when heartbeat present. Sometimes symptoms (breast tender, for example) can wane and is not necessarily a sign of miscarriage. If you're worried, though, call your doctor and ask for an ultrasound, not unreasonable given your history. Good luck!

I have lost my pregnancy symptoms at 9 weeks, is this normal? I have had a previous missed miscarriage so i'm a bit concerned?

Genetic counselling: Early pregnancy loss is usually due to defective genetic make up of developing fetus. Your doctor will offer genetic counseling if you are interested to help you have healthier pregnancy in future.

If my pregnancy symptoms suddenly stopped after a very tragic incident does that mean I'm miscarrying?

If my pregnancy symptoms suddenly stopped after a very tragic incident does that mean I'm miscarrying?

Not necessarily.: Pregnancy symptoms can come and go, and there are many things that can impact those symptoms. An ultrasound is the best way to know the status of your pregnancy. And if it's very early, blood tests can tell the same information. Good luck.

Had a miscarriage a day after unprotected sex. Took shot, but having pregnancy symptoms. Could i be pregnant ?

Please clarify: How could anyone think they are pregnant from sex before a miscarriage and bleeding occurred? That has to be one of the more unique misinformed situations I have ever heard here on health tap.

Miscarriage 2 mos ago, first pregnancy at 39. Is it possible to get pregnant again? Feel symptoms again not sure what to do

Miscarriage 2 mos ago, first pregnancy at 39. Is it possible to get pregnant again? Feel symptoms again not sure what to do

Sure it is!!: Get tested to see if you are pregnant. If you are, get in right away to see your OB. Get on prenatal vitamins with folic acid, hopefully you are already taking that. The fact that you had one miscarriage does not mean anything for future pregnancies. If you are pregnant, CONGRATS!

My gf is having pregnancy symptoms after her miscarriage little over a week later and we have not had sex at all, what is going on?

My gf is having pregnancy symptoms after her miscarriage little over a week later and we have not had sex at all, what is going on?

I am not sure what : You are referring to by pregnancy symptoms. However, she is likely experiencing hormonal variation so soon after her miscarriage.
