    Default Positive HPT 2 weeks after D&c :(

    how long should it take for my body to realise I’m no longer pregnant? It’s been 15 days since my D&C but I still tested positive today in a pregnancy test

    I am so sorry you are going through this. I think everybody is different. For me, I had two missed miscarriages and D&Cs last year. The first time it took 4.5 weeks for my hcg to drop enough that I had a negative hpt and my period returned. The second time it took over 6 weeks. I hope for you that you don't have to wait that long. The waiting is so hard. Big hugs xx

    So sorry for your loss hun!

    Wish I could give some more helpful advise. I too had a miscarriage 18 days ago and on the day of the miscarriage my HCG was still in the 600 range still waiting for AF.

    Maybe you could see your GP and have a blood test just to see what level your HCG is sitting at?

    Might be good to wait a week before doing another HPT too, I have had to avoid them as I can't imagine how gut wrenching it must feel seeing a positive after such a difficult time, hope your taking care of yourself!

    Sending lots of love, I hope you get some clear answers sooner rather than later xxx

    I had a natural mc where growth stopped 6w but hb stayed until week 8. It took 2.5 weeks from full red blood until end of brown spotting to completely go. They say the hcg goes down at the same rate it goes up, so it would go down approx by half every 2 days

    Thank you and so sorry to hear about your loss too!

    I went to the GP today and my blood test came back with 77 HCG so my GP thinks it’s normal and I should just wait.

    Hope you’re okay!

    No I’m not. I feel like I’m back to normal. I went to the GP today and my blood test came back with 77 HCG so I’m hoping it’s just a timing thing and I should just sit tight and wait.

    Thanks for responding!
