Just wondering at what point your bleeding started with a chemical pregnancy?

I had three days of BFPs that started fading and this morning’s very concentrated FMU came back with almost invisible BFP.

Would be great to hear other people’s experiences so I know what to expect.

I had one chemical when trying for my DS - faint positive at 12DPO, nothing at 13DPO and then AF started 2 days later. Sending love x

I had one almost 9 weeks ago. I had a fairly obvious positive line on 12 dpo. It got a little bit stronger, but not quite as dark as control and then stayed the same until about 16dpo. It gradually got lighter. At 21dpo the line was only barely there. I started bleeding the next day at 5 weeks. Unfortunately for me, it also made my next cycle quite whacky. Not sure if I ovulated and my cycle was almost six weeks long. Seems to be back to normal this cycle though. Sorry you are going through this.

Hi lovemybubba. I'm so sorry that you're going through this.

With my first CP I didn't know that I was going to miscarry. It was my second pregnancy and I had no issues with my first so I just took one test and thought I was pregnant. I started bleeding a 6 weeks and lost the pregnancy.

My second CP was the following month. I did a betaHCG with that one and the numbers didn't double. I went for an ultrasound at 6 weeks and they couldn't see anything and told me that I probably just had my dates wrong. I knew that wasn't the case and I started bleeding within the next couple of days ( I can't remember exactly).

From what I've read, every body is different. It seems as though I've been quite lucky in that my body has known what to do. Some people have needed intervention like a D&C.

About 2 days after the test had gone negative.

I've had several and they were all different as to when I started bleeding. Everything crossed that your luck changes soon.

The same day that the second line was almost non-existent, at what would have been just before 5 weeks. We conceived again the next cycle, although ovulation was delayed and we almost missed it because I thought it had already happened. He’s 8 months old now. I hope you’re doing okay ❤️
