Quantitative hCG?: Has your hCG level (pregnancy hormone) gone down to zero? Your period will not/cannot come until it does. You cannot answer this question without knowing the hCG. Sorry about your bad experience and best wishes. ...Read more

I haven't had a period for three months. I miscarried at the beginning of the year at 8 weeks with low hCG what affects your urine hcg?

Pregnancy: Urine HCG levels follow serum (blood) levels. Hcg in blood comes from the pregnancy and nothing else; a miscarriage (often) has low HCG because the pregnancy is abnormal, the low HCG doesn't cause miscarriage. ...Read more

Patience: A woman with regular periods can wait until her period comes. Only if her normal, regular period doesn't come does she need to check a pregnancy test. If her normal, regular period occurs at the expected time, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

Difficult to tell: Your question was cut off, but your spotting on 8/14 may have been a period. If you are trying for pregnancy, there's no harm in unprotected sex. If you want to wait a cycle or 2, i would use protection until you have a normal cycle, just so you know in your mind, that your body is 'back to normal.' after a miscarriage it can be up to 6-8 weeks typically for a normal cycle. ...Read more

I'm almost three weeks pregnant and just finished my period. The hospital said it could be a miscarriage. Is it possible that i'm still pregnant?

I'm almost three weeks pregnant and just finished my period. The hospital said it could be a miscarriage.  Is it possible that i'm still pregnant?

Imagine: No. It is not possible. Imagine for a moment that a new fetus smaller than the tip of a pin trying to live and survive in blood in the uterus and then the blood sloughs off in a period. The fetus does not live through that. In most cases there is no fetus to begin with and it is a normal period. Viable pregnancy stops vaginal bleeding. ...Read more

Vaginal bleeding: There are a number of women that will continue to have menstrual flow during first trimester of pregnancy. The bleeding in itself is not unheard of. Miscarriages are usually associated with cramping. You need to recheck with OB. They may want to check quant hcg in 72 hours or get ultrasound. ...Read more

I had a missed miscarriage then a d&c three wks ago now I am having ovulating pains and a clear white discharge. Does that mean I'm getting my period?

Yes: This sounds like "mid cycle" ovulation. You should expect your period in two weeks. Most women will have their first period 4-6 wks after a surgical procedure for a missed miscarriage ...Read more

Can be normal: i would have to get more history to answer your question , and you age , menstural history etc., if you are saying you had 5 NEG pregnancy tests and you are still late and this is new for you , than you can wait , some times stress, medications etc can cause a person to have delayed period. however if your pregnancy test were postive than it is a different management ...Read more
