It can take a while for the hormones to leave your body so yes until it goes all the way down it is possible to have a positive HPT.  And not all miscarriages do you need a D&C, there are quite a few that they can miscarry naturally without medical assistance.

I had a mc on my own, and did not need a D&C. While reading everything you have posted, I have questions. First you stated that your dr was saying you were having a mc because your hcg levels are at 44, what were your levels when you first went in with the pregnancy? Second- about how far along are/were you?


A home pregnancy test will return positive if you have a hcg level that is above 5 (for some tests, others will return positive if over a higher number). Please understand that when your hcg level is below 5, then you are considered to be "no longer pregnant" or "negative" for doctor terms. I've also had an ectopic pregnancy where after the pregnancy was removed they had to ensure that my numbers returned to zero/negative.


If you want to have a D&C that is your decision. Some women choose to have one because they want to know why the loss happened, others choose not to due to fertility complications. Other times a D&C is needed because not everything came out on its own, or a woman is hemorrhaging and dr intervention is needed.

 I've had three miscarriages. I tested positive with a HPT for two of them (I didn't bother with the third), even after my doctor told me that I was having a miscarriage.

You don't have to do a D&C. I've had three miscarriages, and only had a D&C for one.

It can take a bit for your levels to go down. I used cytotec (wouldnt recommend it) an miscarried at home an there are people who wait to naturally miscarry. You don't need to have a D&C.

I'm not saying that you need to find another doctor, for the moment. I'm just trying to understand why your dr would say that you are having a miscarriage, if he/she only bases on your hcg level.

How many times have you seen this dr for this pregnancy?

Okay, so with this added information, you are miscarrying. I'm sorry for your loss. You have a very special angel who tried to defy odds.
