New Preg or Leftover Hormone 9 weeks after D&C?

Postby torostars » Wed Oct 21, 2015 8:43 am

I had a D&C 9 weeks ago, at 11w1d. I've been testing out the hcg on IC's, and finally, after 8 weeks of positives hpts, the test finally tapered off to a negative. I eagerly awaited my period. But after a week and no AF, I tested again and it was back to a faint positive, and now seems to be getting darker. This means I'm on CD 69 (!) post D&C.

What could this mean?

It doesn't seem that I could have ovulated, if I was still testing positive on the pregnancy tests during the time that I would've needed to conceive in order to have a bfp now. Or can you still ovulate if the hcg level is low? I've been charting, but bbt has been all over the place and not helpful.

I've had 3 losses in the last 16 months, so I feel like my perspective is skewed. With the first 2 MCs, which were natural, my body resumed regular cycles in a month.

Any thoughts or similar experiences are appreciated.

It's possible if hcg is low enough. I'd call your doctor and see if you can get a scan. You might have a true bfp and they may be able to see something. If not they can run blood work to try and see what's going on.
