I know after my miscarriage my dr continued to check my HCG levels until they dropped below 5 which took about 4 weeks. How long has it been since your miscarriage? It might be that they have just not returned to normal yet. I know when I stopped bleeding from my miscarriage I did not have another period until after my levels dropped. Have you had another period yet? Hopefully this is just a slow starter and your levels increase with your next blood work.

My last loss it took 6 weeks for my levels to drop and I had a D&C. I'm sorry this is so frustrating. Give yourself time to heal.

Your numbers don't drop right to 0 after a D&C/D&E/etc. Hormones take a bit to come back down. That being said, that doesn't put you out of the game for a new pregnancy, that could be a very early result for a pregnancy. If you had your period on the 12th, that puts you at about 2 weeks late for AF if you were on a 28 day cycle, but that is not likely, because you wouldn't be at CD1 the day after your D&C. SO, you could be very, very early.

GOOD LUCK!!

The negative may have been a false negative. I am so sorry You should be back to 0 and ready to TTC again soon though. Did you ask if they can monitor the levels until they are back to 0 so you don't have to go through this again?

I'm so sorry. I was hoping that you would get a different result. I agree with Carey, I would ask them to monitor your levels until they are back down to 0. My dr monitored mine until they dropped below a 5. I got my period back shortly after my levels dropped all the way down and then we started TTC immediately and got a BFP that next cycle. So hopefully the same will happen for you.

I'm so sorry.

That is a tough thing to hear, I'm sorry. Your body needs time to heal and the levels to drop. It took exactly 28 days after both my natural MC and my D&C for my levels to drop enough to have my next cycle, but honestly they weren't natural cycles. I spotted for weeks, had heavy flow on and off for 8 - 10 days and spotted again for 2 weeks. My first real cycle was 60 days after each loss. Each subsequent cycle after my last loss has been different with mid-cycle spotting and different lengths.

I hope you get to some normalcy and your levels even out and you can get back to TTC asap!

I'm sorry. Being that the numbers are SO close I would definitely ask that they monitor you until they get lower.
