    Like a lot of pregnancy things, there’s no clear cause. The important thing is that they’re common, and not an indication of you or your partner’s ability to conceive—it’s not your fault, and it’s not your partner’s fault.  Many women experience no symptoms, and don’t know that they’ve experienced a chemical pregnancy. For others, it can feel like menstruation and involve some vaginal bleeding. Some common symptoms include getting your period after a positive pregnancy test, light spotting (this can be a result of implantation bleeding, so it doesn’t necessarily mean chemical pregnancy), and menstrual-like cramps.

    Same boat. One naturally conceived child now age 5. One success with ivf, now 13 months. And did ivf 2 more times, both times getting one healthy genetically tested embryo and both times resulting in chemical pregnancies. I have no diagnosed health issues. Devastated!

    I am 19. I wasn’t trying to become pregnant but I have had one successful pregnancy before and I found out I was pregnant again. I should have been around 6 weeks when I started to feel dull cramps which I thought were implantation cramps. But I had a really sharp pain and went to E.R. I did more lab work two days later. They did an ultra sound and could see gestational sac but nothing in it. I was then told my hormone levels went from 267 to 126 over two days and that I had just had a chemical pregnancy. I have now started cramping badly and bleeding a bit..but I have no idea what else to expect. Please help!

      Hi, I’m the same age as you and I’ve been going through this as well I did a test a few days ago come back positive and then I started cramping and now I’m bleeding heavily I’m waiting for a phone call off my doctor I wasn’t trying for a baby but it’s horrible when things like this happen because I’d of been quite happy to of had a happy healthy baby. Just hoping nothings wrong with me this is the first time I’ve been through something like this. Hope you’re okay babe and if you ever need someone to speak to quite happily contact me and we can share details and at least we can speak to eachother about it xx

    I am over weight, 42yo, with three healthy kids but have had many early loss:( In the last two months I have had two consecutive ones and at this moment I am 21days past ovulation(had my squinters at 9/10dpo and big fat positives at 11/12dpo then negatives) but no spotting/ cramping/ period still nauseous. It’s like NOTHING I have experienced. Normally I get the loss symptoms within a day maybe two of BFN but there is nothing. I am frustrated and weepy.
    I know why I have had so many losses after lots of testing they found I have a blood clotting problem called Lupus anticoagulant syndrome (not Lupus that most people think of) with low S protein. The ob says take an baby aspirin from O on and if the little bean is viable we can start the heprin injections after 8 weeks but they never seem to make it past. Just sharing my journey and wishing you all loads of sticky baby dust.

      Have you gone to see a hematologist? I have anticardiolipin antibody which makes me susceptible for blood clots. I do IVF now and everyone they have me start lovenox before the embryo transfer and I continue it throughout my pregnancy. My hematologist is much more cautious than my fertility specialist high risk doctor and obgyn so if you haven’t seen one yet I would highly recommend it!!

    It’s not to do with age, I’m 24 and this was my first time pregnant. It’s just unlucky if it happens to you but hopefully we will conceive and be successful soon

    I think it’s our age. I will be 35 in 2 months…I just experienced a chemical pregnancy. I have 3 natural born children, youngest is nearly 12. Our age along with all the new chemicals in our food, clothing, household goods, air quality, everything. I hope you all are feeling better. We were not planning a child however I am still very sad.

      I’m very much on the similar boat. Turning 35 in 2 months, have 2 beautiful boys conceived naturally and just had a biochemical miscarriage with the third. It quite a toll on you emotionally and traumatic with the initial shock of knowing it. However we all have to believe in a bigger purpose and God’s purpose in our lives. Our bodies are created so beautifully that it knows what it should reject had there been an abnormal fusion. Still hoping for another successful pregnancy.

    Did either of you find out what the issue was or had any success since. I have a 3 year old conceived naturally and have been ttc a second for two years. Had lots of tests but couldn’t find anything wrong. I had 1 failed cycle of IVF and then in the second cycle we had a chemical pregnancy. They are now testing me for natural killer cells and thrombiotic clotting to see if that is preventing the pregnancy devloping further.

    I had done 1 fresh IVF cycle in Dec. – Jan. 2016 with negative results. I have 2 children (7 y.o. and 1 y. o.) conceived naturally, so I know I am normal. But now, I am concerned that either stimulation medications or something affected my reproductive system, and now I am experiencing chemical pregnancies, 2 in the row. My guess is that the stimulation medications irritated my eggs, and now my eggs are abnormal. I wish I’ve never done it, but I can’t change my past. I will be 36 in June 2016. If you have any knowledge about this please help.
