Hair Loss : Is this a Symptom of Chemical Pregnancy ?

A few months ago after trying to conceive I felt that I was experiencing pregnancy symptoms (sore breasts, difference in discharge, nausea, etc.) but began my period a few weeks later. I was actually surprised when I started because I thought I was definitely pregnant as I was experiencing similar symptoms to when I had my first child. With him I experience these symptoms right away, as soon as a few days after conception. Now it is three months later and I am experiencing similar post pregnancy symptoms as I did with my first child. One of the most noticeable being hair loss. I believe I had a chemical pregnancy and it was possibly the second one in a year. Has anyone else experienced symptoms like these esp. the post symptoms? I have looked online and cannot find anything about symptoms after a chemical pregnancy takes place.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
The medicines used for pregnancy initiation can cause pregnancy symptoms.That is the reason you had those feeling and still persisting few.Pregnancy,even a chemical one,must have a demonstrable positive urine for pregnancy testing,however faint it is.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
