Error C and recently pregnant

Hi! I bought a Clearblue Digital ovulation test (7 packs) and on day 4, the test stick indicated the picture of the book corresponding to error C. I did not bother calling the Careline because I am in Hong Kong and the number on the box id for Australia and NZ. I bought another kit but I still have not have detected my LH surge and I should have ovulated. On the instruction sheet it says that "if you have been recently pregnant you may get a misleading result". I gave birth (to a still born) 8 weeks ago, is that considerate "recent"? Thank you.

We're so sorry to hear about your loss, Annie-Claude.

The pregnancy hormone hCG can trigger a positive on an ovulation test for up to 9 weeks after a miscarriage.  Because of this, we don't recommend using our products until 9 weeks after a recent pregnancy.  Once 9 weeks have passed, you can begin using our ovulation tests when your next menstrual cycle begins.  

We're sending good thoughts your way :-)
