Iím going to ask at my next Dr appointment, but wanted to see if any of you wonderful ladies has any information on this.

Saturday morning I wanted to see how close to O I was so I took an OPK test and it was positive, probably the darkest most positive OPK test Iíve ever had so I immediately thought something was wrong. I still have IC HPT so I tested the same urine with one of those and sure enough it was positive also, and the test line was very dark also. Iím wondering if I should still be getting positives. I was diagnosed as a mm/c on April 11, I was officially 10.4w but measuring only 7.3w. I had the first dose of misoprostol on April 16 and repeated on the 18th.

If any of you ladies where following your HCG levels with HPTs and if so, how long did it take for them to turn negative?

Depending on how high your levels were, it can take a few weeks for them to come down. I think having a positive HPT is still normal for how far post-loss you are.

Thanks, I was thinking the same thing. It's extremely frustrating!!! I'm so ready for this all to be over and done with, it's hard to move forward emotionally and impossible to TTC until itís completely over.

Iím sorry to complain to you all, I know everyone here has had to go through the same thing before but since Iíve seen that positive HPT itís really set me back into a little depressive state!

I agree you can always complain here dear. And I wanted to say I would suggest calling the doctor and going in and having your betas and possibly an ultrasound done. Just to make sure your numbers are dropping at the rate they should be and to also make sure there is not retained tissue.

I've been POAS every other day to check to see when my levels are gone...Yesterday was the first day that I couldn't see a line at all. Tomorrow I am going to get my 2 week prior DandC checkup and depending what the doctors says, I'm going to be poas'ing a lot AGAIN, in the near future. I hope.

I guess I didn't even try to keep track of anything because I have so long to wait until I can TTC again. But I understand the frustration. Time seems to creep by while you're recovering and meanwhile you just want to be pregnant again.
