  • i have seen it mentioned too , so me too what is it?
  • It's when the sperm fertilises the egg, but it doesn't implant in the uterus. So it is passed when you have your af. xx
  • Does anyone know what one is? Or has someone made it up? image
    I'd like to know to.

  • so how do you know you have had one then? sorry i sound thick!!
  • A chemical pregnancy is when the egg implants in the uterus but fails very early on...so u may get a faint bfp a few days b4 af is due...or be a few days late (having had a faint bfp) then af starts, i hate the term chemical pregnancy, its still a miscarraige at the end of the day, they just name it that until your 5wks.
  • Oh, I thought hcg was only produced on implantation? Anyway, this describes what I've just had only the doctor never mentioned the term 'chemical pregnancy'. The moral of my story is don't test early! I would have never known as af came on her due date.

    Thanks for your replies. x

  • That's why they say the number of mc's seem to be rising. The experts don't call this a proper mc. I'm sure they ladies who experience them may disagree.

    I so don't want to get into that ethical discussion! xx
