4 weeks after miscarriage, could i be pregnant again?

hey girls, i've tried not to think so much about this, but i have baby on the brain so bad. i need some answers, or a period :( whichever comes first. about 4 1/2 weeks ago i had a miscarriage, which happened naturally and i wasnt very far along HCG ONLY 206 and falling. about 2 weeks ago i went to the doctors to confirm the miscarraige (miscarriage) and was told that no HCG was left in my body. she also said that my period could come any day now, and it's 2 weeks later. the HCG is all out of my body, so whats the hold up? i took a test today and it came out negative. does that mean im not? should i take another one in a week or so? anything u can tell me would be great. thank you :)

I don't know, but I sure hope you are. It would give me hope. I had d&C done 2 days ago and I want to try today!! I know that you can get pregnant after giving birth right away, so why not? My ex-husband was only 9 1/2 months older than his full term brother!

Yes my daughter miscarried naturally on October 9 and now the doctor thinks she may  be pregnant again doing another test on Monday!  So it is very very likely that you are Preganant Again congrats if that the case.

I think you count from when levels went down.B/f if levels were still pres. means still have preg. hormone in system.Witch would be positive test.Just wait for Af or test.

I had a miscarriage in August, never had a period, had sex ONE TIME, and am now 7 weeks 5 days pregnant.  :-)   Things are going much better so far.  Apparantly you're very fertile after a miscarriage.  Good luck!

I had a m/c in March and then became pg again immediately. No af. Unfortunately I m/c again, but I do know it's possible to be pg immediately after m/c. Good Luck and keep us posted!

I just had a question for all of you that had a m/c....did your doctor tell you to wait 2 cycles before TTC again after your miscarriage?  I had a m/c at end of March and that's what my doc said. Just curious since so many of you TTC again so soon.  My doc said my body needed time to heal, although hcg went to normal in a week and LH surge was detected 2 weeks later.

Daughters doctor said would have liked her to wait for 3 cycles prior to getting pg but said there are no risks either.

Hi

I am more or less the same. I had a D&C 4 weeks ago today and no signs of period. I am not sure how to get HCG levels (everyone else seem to get them!) but I did a pregnancy test last saturday and it was negative (it would be too early but I did it so if I have a positive one in the future I know it is not a false positive). I have also heard the you are very fertile after a m/c and I decided to try straight away because the doctor said that it is safe and that the only reason you are told to wait is to get dates easier. I would recommend to have another test in a few days (a friend of mine got a negative 4 weeks after her period and she was pregnant and the pregnancy was fine)

Good luck and let us know what happens!!!

It can take up to 8 weeks to get AF after a m/c.  They start counting from the day your levels went back down.  It took me 7 weeks exactly to get mine after my 2nd m/c.  With my 1st one, AF came in 4 weeks like normal.  Good luck!  I hope everything works out for you.

I had a m/c about 3 weeks ago which came as a bit of a shock as it was something we had planned for a while.  My doctor said to wait 1 cycle before trying again but how long after the m/c is your cycle supposed to resume to normality? We are wanting to start again now bu is it too soon?

Okay, I got a serious issue.  On May 4th of this year, I had a m/c, with D&C.  Didnt get a period until mid June or 7 weeks after d/c.  I then started the NuvaRing in July and have been faithful with it.  In September just out of curiosity, I took a home pregnancy test (Clearly Confirm) it was positive x 2.  Took a Clearblue easy x 2 it was negative.  Got a serum Quantitative Hcg and it was <.1 (I interpreted this as a firm negative.) October I had a cycle.  Today, I took a pregnancy test, Clearly confirm and it was positive x 2.  Took a clearblue digital and it is negative x 2.  What in the world is going on?  If I am not pregnant, why is the confirm showing positive? Could this uncertainty be in any way related to my earlier miscarriage?  I am a registered nurse, but I am dumb when it comes to pregnancy.  I plan to go to the MD asap, what could make the test positive aside from pregnancy?  HELP

I had a miscarriage about three weeks ago and was told by my doctor to wait at least 1 cycle before trying again.  I have started trying already because she says it doesn't really effect much just need to give your body time to heal. I MC naturally but I am waiting for my period and there is no sign of it. I wonder if I could be pregnant again. on 11/09 my doc took preg test that came back negative she said my HCG levels where low.

It took from May 4th, the day of my d/c to June 17th for me to have a period.  I guess you could be pregnant, but probably not.

I had a M/C  2 weeks ago and only found out the babys heart had stopped when went for a U/S ,so i had a D/C  and just getting back into sex again this past weekend,my doctor told me today that i could try again before i have my first period after my misscarriage , so with that view we are and will see what happens, i had thought you had to wait for your first period to try again but with her advise am going for it and will see what happens, all doctors will say differant advise i think so go with your feeling and when your ready i suggest.

Hi I miscarried on July 9th , 2008 went in for blood work twice so they could monitor my HCG's back down to Zero . I also took a pregnancy test to make sure it was negative to ensure I did not get a false positive it was negative. I found out exactly 4 weeks to the day that I was pregnant again! You are extremely fertile after a miscarriage from what I've heard. I'd wait a week and test again.... You may be testing too soon but also I've heard after a miscarriage it can take up to 3 months to receive your period again.
  Hope this helps and I hope you are pregnant again! We are praying everything goes great this time! I was 7 weeks when I miscarried not sure how far along I am with this one.

I had a miscarriage in Feb of this year. I had my first appt Feb 24th and was told It was measuring 9 weeks at where I should have been and there was no heartbeat. Feb 26th I had to have a D&C. My husband and I started trying again March 17th (our anniversary). It's been a month as of yesterday since my D&C and I still haven't gotten my AF. I'm getting feelings that I'm pregnant again. I'm scared to take an hpt because I feel if it's positive that I may get my hopes up even tho I know it could be from my miscarriage. I'm 21 (will be 22 in May) and my husband is 22. We have 2 healthy kids together. A 2 1/2 year old boy and a 1 year old girl. We were devistated after the miscarriage of our 3rd and are ttc. Idk when I can test?

I also had a miscarriage and on march the 19th and on this day i passed the fetus. The bleeding gradually stopped completely after about a week. When I went to see my obgyn he told me I didn't need a D&C but they found a cyst on my right ovary, they told me it should go away by itself and come for another check up in may. This was my first pregnancy I'm a healthy 23 year old, always had regular periods and I just got married in January so when my husband and I found out we were expecting we were over the moon and told everyone. It was sad for the next two weeks having to tell everyone that asked how i was doing and that we lost the baby. I lost my baby at 6 weeks and now it is the 8th of April and my husband and I had unprotected sex about 3 times after i stopped bleeding and i think it was during the time i ovulated. I could tell i was ovulating because i always get ovulation pains on my right or left ovary and it lasts for about a day im not 100% sure though. But to make the long story short I'm experiencing the exact same symptoms i was when i was pregnant last. I had every thing but morning sickness....this time however i have everything and the past couple of days I have been very nauseous. Could I be pregnant after just having unprotected sex 3 times???? I hope so we really want a baby. Then again its going to be so stressful worrying about weather this one will be strong enough and if we miscarry again I don't think I will be as strong as I was last time.

Ok I had a miscarriage a little over a month ago and now my boyfriend has been noticing that i've been showing signs of pregnancy.  Now i'm a couple days late for my peroid and i've tried taking almost 4 pregnancy tests and they all come up negative.  So does this mean something is wrong? Or i could possibly be pregnant again?

Hello Everyone, thought I'd share my story.  I had a miscarriage on June 18th of this year 2010, had my period a week after, then became pregnant quickly right after, found at at 4 weeks that I was pregnant.  It is possible to get pregnant quickly right after a miscarriage.  Remember that your body is already quite fertile, don't wait for your next cycle to TTC, it's up to you if your up to it.  I didn't wait and I see many other moms didn't wait either.  Just keep track of your body and listen to it.  I am currently 6 weeks pregnant and am grateful to God for his wonderful miracles.

I recently had a m/c...I had my d&c done July 29th had maybe 3 days of bleeding...I had one day of bleeding on August 12th. I just did a pregnancy test on Aug 31st...It was a very faint positive...Did a pregnancy test Sept 3 and it was positive.. Went into the er on Sept 5th and found out I'm pregnant. Don't know how far alone but the did a pregnancy test by urine and by blood and the blood came out to by 980 in beta count...They also did an ultrasound and of course didn't see anything so they said its inconclusive right now! I have to get my blood drawn again tomorrow to make sure the numbers are doubling.. VERY SCARED seeing that I just miscarried...Of course the er doctors talked about the negative before the positive.. They are bringing up ectopic pregnancy, and tubal which are kind of similar.. I don't have any history of tubal or ectopic pregnancies...Just the 1 miscarriage....I don't want to go through devastation again.. Anywords of encouragement? Please help

Hi, hope everything turns out for you all. I just need advice and support really. On 30th August i found out i was approx 6-7 weeks pregnant (1st pregnancy). And on the 5.9.10 i lost it. I was heartbroken and devestated. I cried for days. approx 2 weeks after m/c, i was still feeling tendor, and just out of curosity i did an ovulation test, and it came out i was ovulating. I felt relieved knowing my body was getting back to normal. My husband and i started trying again around this time. I am now feeling nauseous and my breasts are becoming very tendor. I want this so bad, but on some level i feel as though my mind is playing tricks on me. I am too scared to even do a test, as i dont want to go through the devestation again. I cant talk to anyone about this not even my husband, as i dont want him to get his hopes up> when is the best time to do a test?

I had a miscarriage on July 9th. I bled for two weeks. My husband and I started having sex again after I stopped bleeding, today Aug 17th, I tested POSITIVE! My period never came, so it is very possible to become pregnant right away after a miscarriage since you are very fertile.

I know this is an older thread but I figured I'd add my experience. I had a miscarriage Jan 2, 2012 at 4.5 weeks and bled for about 5-6 days. Had a BhCg test the day after the miscarriage and it was <2. Had some slippery CM but didn't think much of it. About 4-5 days ago I had a tiny bit of spotting then 2-3 days ago my bbs started to hurt a LOT! Like more than PMS soreness, and I don't ever get that anyway. Well today I got a BFP! Still a bit nervous as I wasn't really expecting to be pg again so soon! Miracles do happen, and God really does have good plans for us! Keep hoping ladies!

Hi TroubledGirl,

well i believe you should go to a clinic and do a blood test for pregnancy, this will end up all this anxiety :)
if it's positive then congratulation from now and if it's negative well good luck for later on but at least you will not be thinking you are pregnant and continue your daily life normally. less thinking => less stress

PS: one note on stress. Stress is the major issue that could delay the ovulation leading to a delayed period. it is very stressful when trying to conceive after a miscarriage..
so some exercising like jogging, yoga or any activity you add to your life will be a stress relief.
let us know about the blood test :) best of luck

I was told my hold entire life i would never have kids, so i never took the proper precautions to keep from being pregnant, for 8 years. On January 13 2012 Started feeling like i was pregnant so i took a test. (actually 5) ... with in 3 seconds these tests turned positive. i couldn't believe it. three days later on the 16th I went to the hospital because i started spotting, While i was there the did the first ultrasound and i found out i was 4 wks and 4 days with TWINS! We were very shock, scared but excited. I was blessed with not one but two. everything was fine i was just bleeding because of plantation. We went to hear the babies heartbeats on The babies fathers birthday February 8th, at 7wks 6 days. He said it was the best birthday present ever. all was well. On March 7th we went in i was 11wks and 6 days we went in expecting for them to be wiggling. Well they werent. There was no heartbeats on either one. they had stopped growing at 9 wks and 3 days, and 9 wks and 4 days(they were gone for three weeks). Of coarse i flipped out. i couldnt believe this was happening to me. I was scheduled for a DandC the following morning on the 8th of march,  I was in pain but i was and am still heart broken. On the 13th i passed a clot the size of a large pad, and i freaked  and rushed to the hospital. Come to find out they had left some " product" after the D&C. The hits just keep on coming. I had intercourse on the 16th,19th,20th-23rd. After my D&C all my symptoms literally stopped. Now 19 days after i feel like i am pregnant: heartburn nausea, but i dont think i have had a period. COULD IT BE!! :) I would be happy if so, but i dont want get my hopes up if its not possible. PLEASE HELP!
