Post subject: HCG after birth *Updated*
Well I posted a few weeks ago that we haven't exactly been careful since LO. After taking over 3 years to conceive we were just out of the habit of using contraception (silly I know). I was breastfeeding until she was 3 months old and think we have only 'dtd' once since then. This was 19 days ago. I tested about a week after and got a very clear BFN. I have just tested again though (with the intention of starting the pill tomorrow) and have got a very slight pink line.
I am so scared! Will test again in morning to see if any darker.
What I'm wondering is how long does HCG remain in your urine after birth? Is there any possibility of a false positive?

Well after a very sleepless night I've got another faint line! I am so confused. Surely when it is almost 3 weeks since we dtd, even if the swimmers lasted 3 days before ov, it would show up darker by now.
Panicking as well that the leaflet says a false positive could be caused by breast cancer. Guess I'm going to have a weekend of worry and a trip to the doctors next week.

Feel for you... I had this after my daughter in 2008.. in 2009 I had another beautiful girl 11 months between them... im a great believer in fate everything happens for a reason.. I was petrified and a sobbing mess when I found out but wouldnt change it for the world now...
Im more worried now about this pregnancy 4 years later and how we will cope.. lol
