Missed period,lots of blood clots before very short light period.another missed period with negativePregnancyTest w/ pregnancy symptoms?

Ectopic pregnancy: This presentation could be one of a tubal pregnancy. In order to completely rule out pregnancy, you need to have quantitative beta HCG measurements to make sure that you are not pregnant, or have miscarried. You could also have endometriosis or other uterine disease that is causing pregnancy symptoms. You may need an ultrasound to rule out ectopic pregnancy if your HCG levels are low. ...Read more

Surgical abortion 7/7/15.blood hcg level 8/6/15= 9. 8/19/15 ovulation positive.8/22/15 pg test positive. No real period since the abortion.Help please?

Pregnant: The most likely explanation is that you are pregnant again. Did you have sex after the abortion? If your BHCG was 9 back on 8.6.15 then that gives the doctor a point of comparison. Another BHCG can be done now. That number can be compared to the other to see if this is a new pregnancy or lingering BHCG from the pregnancy termination. ...Read more

Can you get implantation bleeding w/ ectopic pregnancy?

Can you get implantation bleeding w/ ectopic pregnancy?

Implantation: Implantation bleeding is not really as common as the internet would have you believe. When it does happen it's usually 6-12 days after ovulation. A pregnancy test 7-10 days after unprotected intercourse is much more helpful. Implantation bleeding occurs exclusively in pregnant women. If you have a positive pregnancy test and are experiencing bleeding then you need prompt evaluation. ...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?

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

Home pregnancy tests are very accurate.: They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Early abortions X 3: Since your miscarriages are very early this suggests something other than the uterus. I recommend that you have several serum Progesterone drawn at 3 days intervals after ovulation. It may be that with a low Progesterone supplementing with vaginal Progesterone will get you through the critical period. ...Read more

Period 2 days early, blackish blood the first day and heavy. Actively trying to conceive, early miscarriage?

Possible cyst: Generally that would not be a miscarriage because the embryo would not have implanted yet. You may have had a small ovarian cyst from your last ovulation that just broke down and allowed you to begin your cycle early. I would just see how this cycle goes and as long as you regulate back to your normal i would not get concerned. ...Read more
