    That is not true. You can loose a real forming human fetus before 15 weeks and it wouldn't be a "chemical pregnancy."

  • A chemical pregnancy is the clinical term used for a very early miscarriage. In many cases, the positive pregnancy test was achieved before the woman’s period was due but a miscarrige occured before a heartbeat was able to be seen on an ultrasound.
