Information on chemical pregnancy

It can be confusing and frightening to get your period a week after a positive pregnancy test, but it’s actually much more common than you might realize.
About three weeks after your last menstrual period, a fertilized egg implants in the uterus, and cells that would become the placenta begin to produce levels of the pregnancy hormone hCG that are high enough to detect on a blood or urine test.
Medically, a chemical pregnancy is more like a cycle in which a pregnnacy never occurred than a true miscarriage.
If you’ve been trying to get pregnant for a few months, sometimes have late periods and are concerned that they might actually be chemical pregnancies, talk to your doctor. Going through one or two chemical pregnancies can feel devastating, but it’s not cause for alarm. You’ve likely experienced what some doctors call a chemical pregnancy, or a very early pregnancy loss, which accounts for up to 75 percent of all miscarriages.
On the other hand, heavy bleeding, menstrual-like cramps and passing tissue from the vagina are signs of a chemical pregnancy. In fact, although it might sound unfair right now, doctors actually look at a single chemical pregnancy as a positive sign that you can get pregnant.


If you have heavy bleeding (with or without cramping) after a positive pregnancy test, call your doctor right away, as you may be experiencing a chemical pregnancy. Either way, if you experience any bleeding early after a positive pregnancy test, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends calling your doctor. If a health condition is contributing to your chemical pregnancies, most can be treated so you can go on to conceive a healthy baby.
If you are trying to conceive and are monitoring your ovulation and menstrual cycles, you are more likely to notice that a chemical pregnancy has occurred.
If this is not found, a chemical pregnancy will be assumed.In most cases, the uterus will empty itself spontaneously after a chemical pregnancy.
The bleeding experienced will be similar to your normal menstrual bleed, although may in some cases be heavier or last longer than normal.Grief And Loss After Chemical PregnancyMany women may be unaware they have experienced a chemical pregnancy. However, the increased popularity of early pregnancy testing kits, means you are now more likely to be aware of the pregnancy. If you were excited to discover you were pregnant, then being diagnosed with a chemical pregnancy can be devastating.


Although the pregnancy ended before implantation, that doesn’t make the loss or grief you may be experiencing any less real. Getting Pregnant Again After Chemical PregnancyMost women who experience chemical pregnancies, go on to have healthy pregnancies. You can start trying to get pregnant again immediately if you wish.If you have suffered previous chemical pregnancies, you should speak to your healthcare provider.
