I had a reasonably heavy 5 day period earlier this week, my first post D&C. I assumed hcg must be pretty low to get AF - part of its job is to prevent AF - but when I took a cheapie test this morning to check that it was negative, I still got a line. On the faint side, but I didn't need to squint to see it.

I'm just curious if anyone else had a similar experience? I wouldn't think much of it but there's a possibility our pregnancy was partial molar. That raises a concern that hcg will start going back up due to abnormal growths, so it made me a little bit nervous whether it's normal or not to still have hcg in your system after a period.
