In brief: .see GYN

Home pregnancy test is QUALITATIVE ( detects pregnancy) but not what stage( QUANTITATIVE test).
If you were pregnant and now miscarried.. hCG level may linger in positive zone until pregnancy completely terminated.See GYN for follow up care.

In brief: Test would be +

A home urine pregnancy test would be positive, even if a woman was having a miscarriage, and could remain positive for up to 4+ weeks afterwards, depending on how pregnant she was when the miscarriage occurred.
Home urine pregnancy tests are very sensitive and measure a substance called betaHCG, produced during pregnancy. bHCG levels drop precipitously following a miscarriage, but can take weeks.
