What is the earliest you can take a pregnancy test after a miscarriage?

1 month: Pregnancy hormone can stay in your body for a month or more depending on the miscarriage and how much and when tissue passed. If its been a month after all tissue has passed, you can probably rely on the pregnancy test. To be sure, serial blood tests with HCG levels can be more accurate. ...Read more

Possibly: You write that you had a negative pregnancy test a week ago. Am i to assume that now a week later you're still not having it. And the pregnancy test is still negative? If that's the case then your cycle might be a little off. If you're trying to conceive, best thing to do is just to wait for your body to cycle again. Take good care of yourself, eat right get lots of rest and decrease your stress. ...Read more

Think I may have had an early miscarriage how can I know for sure ? Will the blood test still show positive after a week later ?

Think I may have had an early miscarriage how can I know for sure ?  Will the blood test still show positive after a week later ?

Maybe: It depends on how far along you were and how high the HCG was when you lost the pregnancy. HCG levels start dropping as soon as the embryo stops developing.

If you do not have a period by three months after the pregnancy test returned to negative you should see your gyn for evaluation. ...Read more

How can you find out if you had an early miscarriage if the pregnancy test came back negative?

How can you find out if you had an early miscarriage if the pregnancy test came back negative?

You can't: If all the pregnancy tests done were negative, there is no way to know. If the pregnancy tests were done around the time of expected menstrual period and came back negative, there was likely never a pregnancy to begin with. ...Read more

Passing large pieces of tissue from vagina 5 days before expected period, could this be an early miscarriage? What type test could tell?

Passing large pieces of tissue from vagina 5 days before expected period, could this be an early miscarriage? What type test could tell?

It is possible: If you were pregnant and miscarrying, then a pregnancy test would likely still be positive. You should check this. If it is negative, then this is probably not a miscarriage. Given that it is abnormal anyway, you should run it by your ob/gyn and see if they want you to be seen. ...Read more
