I'm not sure, Usually after a miscarriage it can take weeks to get the HGC (pregnancy hormone) out of your body..Usually after a m/carriage a pregnancy test will give you a positive rusult for a couple of weeks after even when m/carriage happens in early pregnancy,

My first period after having a normal healthy baby was pretty bad, being heavy and crampy and feeling ill, and I did not have a period for 12 months after having baby #1. If you don't b___stfeed, you can have a period 6-8 weeks after a birth, and any b___stfeeding can postpone it further. It's possible you had a false positive on the hpt, in light of the negative test at the doctors. It's very confusing, and even more difficult to figure out how to respond emotionally not being sure one way or the other. You could ask for an HCG test, as if you were pregnant, some of that will still be around, but it's certainly gone from the first pregnancy. Therefore, if you are positive, you had a m/c. Does that make sense? Let us know how you are doing.
