Could I have miscarried if I had no period sept. And one in October after unprotected sex In Aug?

Could I have miscarried if I had no period sept. And one in October after unprotected sex In Aug?

Good Question!: That's a good question. A lot of unsuccessful pregnancies go un-noticed early on (I guess that means a lot of successful spontaneous abortions go un-noticed, depending on what you wanted). You might have known had you done a urine test after you missed that period in September. Did you want that pregnancy? If yes, sorry. If not, then why the H-- were you having unprotected sex? ...Read more

Pregnancy test: If you want to know if you are pregnant, take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage August 24 & had a regular cycle September 21. I've had unprotected sex but I've got two negative test & I'm 2 weeks late now. Help?

I had a miscarriage August 24 & had a regular cycle September 21. I've had unprotected sex but I've got two negative test & I'm 2 weeks late now. Help?

???: If you DID NOT have a DnC procedure and you DID NOT do blood work to follow the bHCG to zero, I recommend that you see your doctor for a blood test ASAP. If you did either of the above, then it is more than likely that all is well. You are either pregnant and simply need to repeat the pregnancy test or you could just be having an irregular cycle, which is very very common. So, repeat the UPT. ...Read more

Should I take a hpt if me & husband have had unprotected sex after my miscarriage on march 8th they did a test march 12 it was -?

Should I take a hpt if me & husband have had unprotected sex after my miscarriage on march 8th they did a test march 12 it was -?

When to test: No. You would be wasting money on a test that would not in any way be valid. You must wait long enough for a new pregnancy to manifest, grow and to be sharing blood and chemicals with your body. That means if your next expected period does not arrive then that will be when you should next test. ...Read more

Had miscarriage at 7wks then unprotected sex 8-9days later, what's the chance of conception? Is it safe this early after miscarriage? I'm 26

Had miscarriage at 7wks then unprotected sex 8-9days later, what's the chance of conception? Is it safe this early after miscarriage? I'm 26

Low: The chance that you would ovulate 8 days after completing a miscarriage is not zero, but it is low. If you're concerned you can take a pregnancy test to see if you're pregnant. There are no studies to show that getting pregnant again after a miscarriage has any bad effects on that subsequent pregnancy. Some women, however, like to have at least once cycle before they try again. Best of luck! ...Read more

I miscarried I believe on 03/08 took a hpt 03/13 was - period not back me&husband had unprotected sex today so should I take a hpt if yes then when?

Sure: If you miscarried, you were very early in the pregnancy if the test was already negative 5 days after the miscarriage. It is possible that you are close enough to ovulation to get pregnant. A test will turn positive about two weeks after conception - so take a test in two weeks. ...Read more

Is it possible to have had unprotected sex and 6 days later have brown tissue in red blood, could that be an early miscarriage?

Is it possible to have had unprotected sex and 6 days later have brown tissue in red blood, could that be an early miscarriage?

Please Clarify: There is way too much missing from your question. Did this sexual encounter happen during your ovulation or is this blood tissue the beginning of your normal period? If you are on birth control pills then why would you think this bleeding is from an early pregnancy? Your question stimulates many more questions and almost no answers. ...Read more

Probably not: One prior miscarriage is unfortunately an extremely common story. The chances of a miscarriage with any new pregnancy are as high as 15%, but not increased because you have only had one prior. ...Read more

Its been 28 days since my miscarriage bleeding has stopped I had unprotected sex n he came in me how soon should I test for pregnacypregnacy?

6 weeks: A urine pregnancy test may not be accurate after the miscarriage because pregnancy hormone can still be present. If you do not get a period within 6 weeks, check a urine pregnancy test and if it is positive then you may also need a serum or blood pregnancy test. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex the 20th of last month. I was ovulating. I started 3 days early, light bright red and creamy. Is this an Early miscarriage??

Take a preg test: Irregular bleeding is one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

6 weeks preg had a miscarriage on the 15 had unprotected sex continuously a week after and today tested positive is it new preg or HCG still in system?

NO: You would not have ovulated in the time between your miscarriage and the time of the positive pregnancy test. The pregnancy test does not drop to zero (non-pregnant levels) immediately after a miscarriage - your positive test is likely a result of the pregnancy hormone still in your body from the pregnancy you lost. You should probably repeat the pregnancy test weekly until it is negative. ...Read more

It: It would be reasonable in that situation to take a pregnancy test. If you have continued clots or spotting, with your history it would be reasonable to see your provider, as you have a history of pcos and uterine septum. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage about 8months ago, rectley got my period for 2 weeks, why? . Also me and my partner are having unprotected sex for the last month

Miscarriage or not: The two may or may not be related. Due to the fact that you are not using protection, the possibility of pregnancy and another miscarriage is high. However, there are many other reasons that can cause abnormal bleeding - ovarian cysts, thyroid problems, uterine problems.

I would suggest that you monitor your periods and if they continue to be abnormal, you should have labs and an ultrasound. ...Read more

If I start my period 2 days after unprotected sex and there's more clotting than normal is it possibly a miscarriage?

If I start my period 2 days after unprotected sex and there's more clotting than normal is it possibly a miscarriage?

Not if...: If one had normal periods the last cycle and the cycle prior to the last cycle, that means no pregnancy from the last 2 months. Two days after sex and then a period means no pregnancy this cycle. By definition, one cannot have a miscarriage if one is not pregnant. ...Read more

Missed a few pills. Been feeling nauseous and have headaches. Been nauseous but hungry. Had unprotected sex. Recently had miscarriage. Could I be preg?

Missed a few pills. Been feeling nauseous and have headaches. Been nauseous but hungry. Had unprotected sex. Recently had miscarriage. Could I be preg?

Yes, of course: No single birth control is 100% effective at preventing pregnancy. Statistically, your chance of becoming pregnant increases with each instance of unprotected sex.Your nausea may have little to do with this--I encourage you to explore my prior healthtap answers regarding causes of nausea). A pregnancy test now is a very prudent step, as is adding a 2nd birth control method if pregnancy undesired. ...Read more

I hd miscarriage on 12/07, I hd unprotected sex wit my hubby on 30, 31&1st on vacation, I'm Delayed period 1-2days now. Pls advice asap?

Hmmm....: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

3 days before my period had unprotected sex. I got my period as usual. I get my period for 4-5 days. It's day 7 and dark blood. Is this a miscarriage?

Unlikely: Although abstinence is the only 100% contraceptive method, the timing of this makes it almost impossible to be pregnant. However, you have exposed yourself to sexually transmitted infections as well as pregnancy. Get on birth control and also use condoms. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage 3 weeks ago im 21 years old. My partner and I have been having unprotected sex now super light spotting. Is it my period?

Likely: Quite possibly it is your period. The bleeding will vary depending on if you had a suction D+C after your miscarriage or not. I am sorry for your loss. You should avoid unprotected intercourse after a miscarriage until after you have your first menses or the bHCG returns to zero. You should have discussed this with your doctor. ...Read more

Mother to 5 but recently had miscarriage 2m ago light period last m but had unprotected sex loads this month what r chances of preg?

High: Do you not like the answers you are getting here? You are asking the same doctors the same question. Sperm in the vagina when you are ovulating means pregnancy. Having a miscarriage does not in any way prevent you from ovulating when the HCG hormone goes down to zero. Of course you can be pregnant. What are you not understanding about how babies are made and when they are made? ...Read more
