Chemical Pregnancy – it is an early pregnancy or in other words a very early miscarriage, which takes place before Ultrasound is done. Chemical Pregnancy can show positive Beta Test result in the beginning but eventually, women will not be pregnant. From the scientific point of view, that occurs when the sperm fertilizes the egg, but the egg doesn’t survive.
What to expect during chemical Pregnancy?
A person who has chemical pregnancy has initially positive urine and Beta HCG Blood tests, and later either the Pregnancy test results are negative or bleeding begins.
Sometimes on the early stage of pregnancy test can show positive results because of the change in hormone levels. That hormone is known as hCG or human chorionic gonadotropin.
Chemical pregnancy can have no symptoms or signs. Symptoms can vary from person to person.
Among possible chemical pregnancy symptoms, we can distinguish: light bleeding, cramping or spotting prior to bleeding.
