Is 2 weeks since miscarriage too early for a positive pregnancy test?

Is 2 weeks since miscarriage too early for a positive pregnancy test?

Hi I miscarried on June 14 on July 15 I had a positive pregnancy test can I still have HCG in my body or am I pregnant?

Yes and Yes: If your HCG level was not followed after your miscarriage until it was zero, then a positive HCG level now could mean that you did not clear out all of the tissue or that you have HCG producing tissue still in the uterus. This could be a very serious situation and should be check out soon. It is also possible that you are pregnant again. ...Read more

Had a natural miscarriage 15 days ago. I only bled for a few days. Hormone levels were at below 20 within 4 days. Now testing positive pregnancy test?

Had a natural miscarriage 15 days ago. I only bled for a few days. Hormone levels were at below 20 within 4 days. 
Now testing positive pregnancy test?

Promising but...: Occasionally, you can have retained products of conception that would make the BHCG linger. Admittedly, even the most sensitive tests are sensitive to 20mIU so this would suggest that you are pregnant again. The only definitive way of knowing would be to repeat theBHcg quantitative. A number greater than 20 mIU suggests that you are indeed pregnant again. I am sorry for your loss. Good luck! ...Read more
