User avatar Hi Momoftwins,

Following a miscarriage it is very common for a woman's cycle to be irregular or change from its previous pattern for a while. Often it will return to normal but this may take several (meaning >6 in some cases) months.

Regarding your question about ovulation, ovulation is generally thought to occur 14 days before the next period is expected. With a 28 day cycle this is mid-cycle. With a 24 day cycle, ovulation would be expected on day 10, slightly earlier than mid-cycle.

Best wishes.

User avatar If I'm understanding you correctly your last period was on Sept. 25th. If so, it is likely that you are still early for your period. Your body may be returning to its prior 28 day cycle. I would suggest that you repeat the pregnancy test during the 5th week after your last period if you are still suspicious that you may be pregnant. At that point the test will be most accurate.

Best wishes.
