Quoting Amelia Margaret:" It depends on how much HCG was able to get built up before the chemical. The more HCG you have, the longer ... [snip!] ... each woman has can still vary quite a bit. In general you can expect your next period to be about a week late, give or take."
Quoting Rista Kat:" That makes sense. When I was in the ER it was only 0.5 so that's very low. I just don't know when I should start testing this month."
Quoting Amelia Margaret:" Anything less than 5 is considered not pregnant. I would say your cycle had already started by then. What day was it? Also, very sorry about the loss. It sucks, I know."
Quoting Rista Kat:" That's what the docs were saying too, but I was showing up positive on the pee test they gave me and ... [snip!] ... blood. I didn't go in until I was gushing blood though and that was December 14th I believe. I started spotting the day before."
Quoting Amelia Margaret:" Are you trying to TTC again or just want to know when to expect your next period? If TTC, you may be ... [snip!] ... first from blood before urine. So it's totally normal to have a negative beta but still have a positive HPT when miscarrying."
Quoting Rista Kat:" We're not actively trying, but we're not preventing either. So whatever happens, happens. I did an ovulation ... [snip!] ... stretchy discharge about a day before we started BD'ing. So I just want to know when I should expect AF so I can start testing."
Quoting Rista Kat:" I just counted on the calender and 4 weeks from last AF is this Friday on the 11th. That's sooner ... [snip!] ... That's sooner than I thought! ETA: But then on the ovulation calculator it says AF should be due the 15th. I'm confused."
Quoting Amelia Margaret:" Personally (because I'm a poasaholic ) I would start testing the week of the 21st. If we're correct ... [snip!] ... put you at about 10dpo. Closer to the 25th would be a safer bet though. Depends on how many HPTs you're willing to go through. "
Quoting Amelia Margaret:" I never use ovulation calculators because it's really just a guess. Have you ever considered temping/charting? It makes my ovulation date crystal clear."
Quoting Amelia Margaret:" Heh, I never even asked how many days your cycles are. I just pretended it was 28 days. "
Quoting Rista Kat:" Why the 21st? That's almost 2 weeks after expected AF. I'm going to start testing possibly this weekend or the beginning of next week. I already have insanely sore boobs and bloat."
