HCG wouldn't have left your body in 24 hours, even if you miscarried.
When was your period due? What kind of test did you get a positive on?

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think you can ovulate and bot have a period unless you are pregnant. It's not possible to release an egg every month and not bleed if you aren't pregnant. Maybe you should make an appointment with your doctor and have your hormones checked.

So you take medication that causes false positives and you only ovulate once a year? Oh nevermind I just reread that sentence, you have one period a year. I still think if you aren't having regular periods you are more than likely not ovulating. What test has your doctor performed to check for ovulation?

what does it matter what tests hes performed? just so you know he checked my ovaries and yes i do ovulate.. dont believe me research it and ask my doctor. trust me it does happen.. and i still get everything that comes with my period like the moodiness and what not just no blood..also im not exactly sure if its the medication thats causing it.. he just said it was a "possibility"... as he put it.. more like now that i have insurance i need to find a different GOOD doctor!

Not true. The levels drop dramatically. Even overnight. It happend to me.



OP- google chemical pregnancy. It wont help with the sadness, but it will inform you. I had one 2 cycles ago and it still hurts. The good news is, no waiting to try again. :DKeep your chin up and dont listen to negativity.

Did you dr mention that because you ovulate but don't have a period that the chance to continue having chemical pregnancies/mc's is high due to the lining of your uterus not being able to sustain a pregnancy. W/o the proper building up and shedding that is supposed to occur in a ''cycle'' a fertilized egg will have a difficult time implanting properly & growing correctly.

I have hypothyroidism because I had my whole thyroid removed. I also have pcos. The pcos causes false positives on opk. The thyroid, when it isn't managed, causes skipped periods and annovulatory cycles. I manage mine and have regular 30 day cycles and still can't always ovulate without clomid half the time.



Even the cycle you DO have and manage to ovulate on your own, you wouldn't be able to maintain the pregnancy until your levels are fixed. If you're only getting one period a year then your levels are very off.



Honestly, I don't care if you catch an attitude for me saying this, but either this post is just a strange attempt at getting attention...or your doctor is an idiot and you need a second opinion.

not for attention just expressed how i felt at the moment like it said you DONT have to read it and ive already come to the conclusion that i needed a new doctor but sense i have new insurance i need to figure out what doctors in my area takes my insurance. im thinking maybe a thyroid specialist might help better?

Yes, definitely see an endocrinologist. They can help you the most with thyroid issues as they know much more than other doctors. I would suggest doing that and once your thyroid is back to where it should be, seeing an RE. Good luck!

There is a baby, it just doesn't implant properly or arrests very, very early.



OP what medication are you taking? The only one that would cause a false positive pregnancy test is HCG.
