    You may have a longer cycle this time a round since you had a D&C. Your HCG levels were not back to 0 when you had the D&C so as they lowered, it could throw off O time for the month. If you were BDing through this cycle...it could be possible although it may just be a longer cycle. My dr told me to wait for bding for 6 weeks so I just waited for a new cycle to start. I guess you could test and if neg, give AF a week to show up and test again. I know a lot of people have a 40-50 day cycle after a m/c and/or d&c. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I know that after my D&C I didn't have my period until almost exactly 6 weeks later. It is a rough thing emotionally to go through, because you can't help but get your hopes up. I would take the previous advice and wait a while. I know you posted this a week ago, so if you still haven't started a the HPT gives you a negative, maybe call your doctor if you're worried. Best of luck to you on this journey!
