Brief Answer:
Delayed periods

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Greetings
If you had miscarriage on 23rd July,you won't be ovulating on 31st Aug and 1st of September.
Even if bleeding stopped it will take more than 12 to 14 days to ovulate.That also depends up on period of pregnancy and abortion you had it now.
Some times it will take more times to ovulate.
Hence I think you should wait again ,either to test for pregnancy or for periods.
Hope you are convinced. Regards

I completely agree with you and understand what you are saying but I did an ovulation tests on both days and came back positive, and then on the tuesday and ever since the ovulation tests came back negative so i am just so confused! And what would you make of the pains lower down that i am getting? So when exactly do you think i should be expecting my period?

Brief Answer:
Delayed periods

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Since you had recent miscarriage,your ovulation test was positive .As I told you, it depends on the hcg hormone level at the time of abortion.
You can wait for 5 to 7 days .If no periods you can repeat the test with early morning urine sample or scan.Pain may be premenstrual cramps.
