  • Yes. Pregnancy tests measure the hormones in your body, so until those hormones are absent or low enough to no longer register, you will still test positive on a pregnancy test.

  • Yes. Your hormones don't go back to normal right away, and as long as that "pregnancy" hormone is present in your system you'll get a positive test.

  • It depends on a lot of things. How far along the person was before the miscarriage, how long the pregnancy hasn't been active, how much and how quickly her body produces and changes hormones. A pregnancy test will just judge your hormones which your body won't adjust for a little while. A friend of mine never had a positive pregnancy test, after taking 4, she went to the ER for pain and no period and turns out she had miscarried. Another friend got a positive test in a very similar situation. Either way I would imagine a doctors visit would be important.

  • Hcg is made by the placenta. So until it passes yes.
