HCG levels after miscarriage?

Postby chall » Tue May 07, 2013 5:18 pm

Hi all.. I'm hoping someone here might be able to tell me if what I'm experiencing is normal... this is new to me.

I miscarried at around 6 weeks, on around 4/25. Here is the series of hcg levels I've had and their dates:
4/25 - 430
4/29 - 304
5/7 - 264

Does this rate of drop seem normal? My doctor asked me to get checked again in another week. I really just want to get back to normal so we can try again soon.

The 4/29 to 5/7 seems a little slow. That's only a 40 drop in a week. There may be some tissue still remaining...then again everyone is different and you may be just fine GL :hugs:

Thanks for replying MT. I also thought it seemed like a smallish drop, but from what I've been able to read about this topic, there is a wide range of "normal" as far as how long it takes. It seems it's just a waiting game. I'm just having a hard time being patient. And I saw you recently had a loss too.. so sorry. :hugs: How are you doing?

Well my doctor called today and they've decided they want to do an ultrasound to check things out. Scheduled for tomorrow. Hopefully this will clarify what's going on...

Just thought I would update here in case anyone was following along.. the ultrasound showed things looked pretty much exactly as they did 2 weeks earlier - sac was still there. So my doctor recommended a D&C. I had that done two days ago, so I think I'm finally getting to the end of this saga. Looking forward to trying again...

Hi, sorry I just now saw your reply. I'm going through some craziness right now. Check out the thread on (Pee on a stick) (My Dr. said I had a chemical) I'm glad you are getting to move on. Waiting is the worst!
