QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I'm 22yrs old and had a miscarriage at 12wks in mid September. I had an emergency D&E and lost a lot of blood. Now I am severely anemic and have to take iron 3 times a day. I also have PCOS and didn't think I could get pregnant.

Now I am having pelvic cramps, nauseousness, frequent urination and my gut tells me I could be pregnant again. I missed my period. It was supposed to come on the 25th but took a HPT and got a negative this morning.

How long should I wait until I test again? And I am at a lower rate for miscarriage being I already had one at such a young age? Thanks in advance. Smile

ANSWER

If you took the test after January 8, then you are not pregnant. Your symptoms are being caused by something else, so you may want to get a check-up.
