A "chemical pregnancy" is just another term for an early miscarriage. Many times this happens without the woman even knowing she is pregnant. Usually the reason for this is because of abnormalities with the developing fetus or due to the embryo not implanting properly within the womb lining itself. Your doctor will probably advise you to wait for 2 - 3 months before trying again to conceive as it can take a while for your hormone level to return to its normal level. Usually it takes longer if you miscarry further along. So given the fact that you were only a few weeks along it should only be a week or two. Try not to worry.... it is perfectly normal and happens more often than a lot of people realise as it often occurs very early on after conception and most people assume it is their period but a little late. I have had this happen myself and have gone on to have a perfectly healthy baby since then so it does not mean that anything is wrong with you. Hope this helps and good luck =)

With a tubal, there would be intense pain, and by 3 months she would have had symptoms because the size of the baby at this point would have ruptured her fallopian tube. So I seriously doubt it is a tubal pregnancy. Also, you are incorrect that an ectopic pregnancy doesn't show up on a pregnancy test. It does. The embryo is developing and therefore the pregnancy hormone HCG will be present. I do not think your friend is pregnant. But if she hasn't had a period in three months when she has otherwise been regular, she needs to go to the doctor, insurance or no. She could have an STD or other illness that has affected her cycles.

It normally takes around two weeks from the point of conception for your body to produce enough HcG (pregnancy hormone) to be readable on a typical at Home pregnancy test. I believe blood tests can tell sooner but you'll need to make an appointment with your doctor for one of those. Good luck!

most likely not, you are pregnant. The levels of pregnancy hormones leave your body right after giving birth, it takes a total of 6 weeks. If you are breast feeding the chances are still low, the hormones needed to maintain a pregnancy and create milk are separate. To be super sure get a blood pregnancy test, getting pregnant right after having a baby is close to a sure thing....good luck

You can TRY 4-5 days before with Dollar store tests, Answer Early Detection, First Response Early Detection, Walmart's Equate Early tests, and Walgreens early detection tests. They ALL detect 25 mlu of the pregnancy hormone. They ALL work well. I used the Dollar Store tests myself.
