Hi. I am an older woman who has been trying to get pregnant for about 2 1/2 years. For the past year I have noticed consistent chemical pregnancies, where the tests get a second line, but then my period arrives on time. Is this a product of age? Is it due to my use of early test strips that detect HcG at levels of 20 mui? Will this kind of thing happen indefinitely until I go into menopause or do chemical pregnancies signal possibly that there are some good eggs left.
I also want to note that I my cycles are painless and that I never get PMS. I ovulate very regularly, I take no medications, except for bioidentical progesterone from Day 13 of my cycle.
On July 10 I slept with this woman I know I used a condom and afterword I didn't think much about it then her ex came back to town and they got back together and had unprotected sex. Three weeks after I had sex with her she told me she thought she was pregnant and when I asked her if she thought the child was mine she said no that it was her ex boyfriend's and I said how do you know for sure that the child isn't mine and she said that besides us using a condom she had her period later that month which she said she knew the child couldn't be mine and then a week later she told me she had a miscarriage. I asked her how long she was pregnant before she had the miscarriage and she said a couple weeks and then I found out today that she is between 5 and 6 weeks pregnant again and I'm concerned that there is still a chance that the child could be mine even though the timing doesn't add up from when her and I had sex to when she got pregnant the second time. What are the chances this child could be mine and is the information that she has given me accurate as far as when someone can get pregnant again right after having a miscarriage and does the fact that she had her period sometime later that month after we had sex does eliminate the possibility of her child being mine. She did say she has had 3 miscarriages before. How soon could she have found out that she was pregnant and how soon could she have had a miscarriage. Do you believe all these things she has told me are accurate and truthful?
