had a natural miscarriage, can I be pregnant again so quickly?

had a natural miscarriage, can I be pregnant again so quickly?

I had a natural miscarriage on April 11th after 10 weeks pregnancy, last night I noticed my boobs are heavy and “full”, and was wondering if I can be pregnant again already?

  1. Hi Alia, So sorry to hear you are going through this. It is true you can get pregnant the first cycle after a miscarriage or delivery, so I would be sure to follow-up and take a test if your period doesn’t come back when it is expected (keep in mind, though, that often a delivery/miscarriage that first period can be a little irregular too, so not getting your period right when you expect it doesn’t mean you are automatically pregnant). In the meantime, take a prenatal vitamin with folic acid and be sure to reach out for any support you need. Good luck!

  2. I did a urine test and got a faint second line, is there any chance it’s only from leftover HCG?

    1. Hi Alia, sometimes faint lines can appear if the test was read too late. If you followed the instructions exactly however then that is a positive test. If that’s the case I’d recommend checking in with your doctor or midwife to better understand it, so you get the proper evaluation and treatment!
