I hope you don't mind me asking more questions. I'm 8 days past my ERPC and still getting quite a strong positive on a test. How quickly did you guys get a negative test after the procedure?
Also, when did you stop bleeding?
How quickly did your period return?
Thanks in advance everyone.

Hey mac girl.
I hope you're doing as ok as you can be, hugs for you.
I didn't test after my erpc as I wasn't told to, so I can't help on that front. I know CA tested following hers so maybe she'll be along soon and be able to answer that.
My period came back after 5 weeks, I think I initially bled for about 10 days.

Hi mac girl, hope you are doing as well as you can be.
I can't remember exactly but I think I had a negative test around two weeks after my (second) ERPC although I don't remember testing much at all. Bleeding was really light for me that time, and stopped within a couple of days but I remember being told it could be a couple of weeks.
My period returned 4.5 weeks after.

I hope you're doing ok lovely, or as well as can be expected.
I was asked to test 2 weeks after and phone with the result. It was still a faint positive at that point. I eventually got a BFN about 3 weeks after. Everyone is different with this though.
With regards to the bleeding, I didn't bleed very much at all so I can't really help with that I'm afraid.
Take care of yourself xxx

Hi lovey, I hope your doing ok.
Ask anything you need to. I had the ERPC on a Monday and tested for the first time 2 and a bit weeks later on the wed (so 16 days after) and I had a fairly faint positive but you could still see the line (I was totally unprepared for this as I thought it would be negative and it was just heart wrenching). I tested again on the Sunday (so 20 days after the ERPC by this point) and it was negative.
We had zero plans to try again that month, one because they advise you to wait (although they told me there's no medical reason for this but it guess they recommend it to let you get over the procedure a little at least both physically and mentally).
I decided to do OPKs so I would know when I might be ovulating and a couple of weeks after my negative test I got a positive and after 3 positives over 3 days I did a pregnancy test and I was pregnant again. Working it out now, we DTD (for the first time since the ERPC) on day 22 and I must have ovulated on day 23. I was still trying to look out for ovulation and it had been and gone. So my period would have been just over 5 weeks after.
I bled quite heavily and much like a bad period for about the first week and I had light bleeding in the second week and then it stopped. I remember the bleeding had stopped when I took the first test so it must have been by day 16.
I'll never forget how I felt when I was going through it but I promise you it gets easier. I hope your doing as well as can be expected. Also just wanted to add, despite getting pregnant again right after the ERPC everything was fine and I went on to have a healthy pregnancy xx
