    Default Morning after pill fail. Need opinions plz help!

    Ok so bizzare story please dont judge me.

    Had a one night stand 19/12/16 (3 weeks into my cycle lmp 1/12) then took a morning after pill on the 20/12/16.

    (I met my current partner (whom i adore) 1 week after the one night stand.)

    24/12 - 31/12 i had what i thought was a period which i then started my pill packet. All was good until i started getting morning sickness and other pregnancy symptoms which i decided to take a pregnancy test to rule out. 9/1/17 dark positive.

    One problem. My partner is not the baby daddy and he knows that so we decided to book in a termination as none of us are in a position to be able to support a child.

    Had bloods done 10/1 which HCG was 340. Had ultrasound same day they couldnt find anything. I instantly knew it wasnt a healthy pregnancy and it would pass and i was ok with that.

    12/1/17 got admitted to hospital thinking i was having an ectopic but ended up being a "miscarrage". Hcg that night was 260 and the following morning 198 so they discharged me and told me i miscarried and to come back for follow up bloods to follow the hcg back to zero. (They DID NOT do a D&C.)
    Had follow up bloods 16/1 which showed ZERO hcg. I started back on my pill that day.

    ALL WAS PERFECTLY FINE. Around 25/1 my pregnancy symptoms started to come back along with morning sickness and no appetite. In my head i knew i couldnt be pregnant again cause we didnt have sex for 2 weeks from when i found out. And after that it has been strictly protected. (need to be careful 1st month taking pill).

    This wasnt all just in my head i kept telling myself stop being silly its probably from the pill.... right???

    Took a test 30/1 POSITIVE!!!!

    it cannot be a new pregnancy it has to be the one i "miscarried". Someone please tell me what could be happening? Waiting for blood results and getting ultrasound. My dr didnt even know he was speechless.

    If a bloodtest returned a result of 0 hcg, it couldn't be that first pregnancy.
    Hcg doesn't drop to zero & go back up again

    A stab in the dark but maybe you were pregnant with twins, miscarried one twin. The blood test could have been wrong - samples get mixed up, labs make errors sometimes. It's not common but it's not unheard of.

    Edit: another potential is that you're not pregnant and the recent positive test was picking up residual hormones from the previous miscarried pregnancy. Again this would only be possible if the zero result on the blood test was wrong. Pregnancy symptoms could be ovulation / period symptoms.

    Exactly this.
    The first pregnancy with a complete miscarriage so there is no way it could be that.

    It is very strange. Go see the dr asap. Get bloods done. Have a scan done. Then go from there. Good luck.

    Yeah wow.. I don't have any answers for you there. I know the morning after pill is useless if you've already ovulated (or if you were just about to). I haven't heard of a pregnancy dipping in hormones only to rise again.

    I DID recently read about a woman who conceived 2 babies 10 days apart from the same night of intercourse. Apparently the sperm lived 10 days in her vagina (which is highly unusual) and so she ended up with 2 babies born on the same day, conceived 10 days apart.

    I guess the body is capable of amazing, whacky things. The best thing you can do is get an ultrasound. Wishing you luck!

    Did you dtd in early Jan? All I can think of is you miscarried the first pregnancy but before the hcg dropped to 0 you ovulated again and concieved. Or if you've done at hpt it can pick up hcg levels of 10-20. Werr you told the test was zero on 16/1 or that it was negative? Did you see the actually hcg number?
