How do you know if you had a chemical pregnancy? Besides having a BFP and then a BRN???

I found out when I got a bfp, and went two days later for a blood test. Hcg came back a 17 and then I started bleeding, etc. If I was not ttc, I would have no idea. It was just like a normal period, 4 days late, for me.

The only way to know is to get a BFP and then have AF show up a couple of days later. This is why they recommend that you don't test until your period is due. Many women have chemical pregnancies and never know it because they didn't take a pregnancy test before AF. Sometimes it is better not to know because the emotional rollercoaster of getting a positive and celebrating, then getting your period is too much to bear.

I agree with deb, don't test until 3 days after your period. I'm on an emotional rollercoaster because i tested pos 3 mths in a row, each time having a period a couple of days later. Its very hard to resist the urge to test when you feel soooo pregnant. Will have a month off and try again. If you have recurring chemical pregnancies, then its best to get some tests done. A low progesterone level is a cause and can easily be treated.

Same thing has happened to me 2 times last time I was 2 days late this time I was 3. I kinda feel like I shouldn't test until I miss 2 periods.
