How long after delivery or miscarriage are pregnancy hormones still in your body? adult content

We really jumped the gun on having sex before the 6 weeks were up, and I want to know if I take a test and its positive next week, if it would still be the hormones leftover from my pregnancy or if it would be accurate.

  • Well going off of my second miscarriage, my level was back to zero a couple of weeks after the bleeding stoppped. Your doctor would be able to tell by doing a blood test.

  • In a complication free birth or miscarriage it is usually 2-6 weeks. However it remains in other women's system longer and if there are complications of any kind it can be months.
