Yes. But if you take a test now, it would likely still be positive if it was a CP. It takes time for the hCG to go back down to zero.

smiles4jo:  It’s possible, but a randomly late AF with no particular explanation is probably even more likely. Happens to myself and other ladies here all the time.

It’s possible, and a chemical pregnancy would not necessarily still show a positive at this point but FRERs are very sensitive and after my miscarriage I was still getting faint lines at an hcg level of 6. Not encouraging you to test, just saying if you did it could go either way as far as confirming if it was in fact a chemical.

Having been there, I’d suggest not testing. Chances are that your cycle was just off, and it’s heartbreaking to get a confirmation if it was a CP. I totally wish I could un-know my early (only a few days late) CPs, and they didn’t really affect anythign treatment-wise. If you weren’t tracking your O date, you might not have even noticed that anything was up, and your doctor will say that it was a random chromosomal problem and not a big deal. Anyhow, my cycle’s been all over the place the last few months (early AF that lasts a day, temps that stay higher longer than usual), and I’m most definitely not pregnant. Our bodies are weird.
