This is what is called a chemical pregnancy It is an early pregnancy that generates beta hcg, the pregnancy hormone, but never produces an embryo or continuing pregnancy. It is an extremely early miscarriage and is due to the pregnancy being abnormal. It happens much more frequently than we know. It occurs when a woman is late for a period and then goes on to have a heavier than normal period. Ther
