i had my 10 week appt on sept 18th, 2008, they did an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy and they said i was 5-6 weeks rather than 10 weeks.
sept 19th, i started bleeding, they had me come in for a blood test to check my hcg level, and it was decreasing.
it has been almost 2 months and my hcg is down to 36 and ive had constant bleeding since sept 19th. i made an appt w/ the doc for monday, hes concerned that my hcg level is taking too long to drop to zero and is also concerned that im still bleeding heavily. my question is, is it normal for a miscarriage to last this long? my hcg level started at 10,000. also why is it taking so long for my hcg to get to zero?
i have 2 children and this has been my 1st miscarriage.
thank you in advance for your replies!

Hey jray,
I was diagnosed with a blighted ovum at 8 weeks. Took misoprostol on Oct 18 (at near 10 weeks) to induce a miscarriage. It's been 30 days since that day and I'm still bleeding. The bleeding starts and stops. Some days I spot brown all day just to bleed bright red again the next day. My HCG was 39 this past Tuesday and 23 two days later. I haven't gotten an order to get another blood test done this coming week but I will request for one tomorrow. If my body keeps following this trend of dropping about 16 every 48 hours, I'd be down to about 7 tomorrow. Today I was just spotting brown, then I started cramping and saw more red blood by the late afternoon. That totally sucks. I was really hoping to stop bleeding as I really dislike having any bleeding. I don't know what to say to you about how long a miscarriage is supposed to last as mine was medically induced, but I understand your grief of bleeding and taking a long time to get your hcg levels to go down. I recently had a natural miscarriage in June and I bled for 16 days, but I was only about 5-6 weeks along. Keep me posted.

It's kind of hard to say, exactly. I'd been dealing with some of that brown, light spotting for a while (to which every medical professional I spoke to said was normal), but I went to the ER with bright red blood on December 27 and was told that day I was miscarrying but hadn't yet passed the tissue. On December 30, I passed it. I was roughly 10-11 weeks when I miscarried...the reason why I didn't know exactly was because I found out late I'd been pregnant. I'm supposed to get my updated hcg levels on Friday because there was a mix-up with them, but since December 30, my bleeding has tapered off slowly. Still bleeding, but definitely not as much. I'm supposed to get AF soon.

It lasted all of 3 days from the time we found no heartbeat during the US. But I had a D&C because my body was showing no signs of naturally miscarrying.

Mine was sudden. Baby at heartbeat at 4pm that same day at midnight I passed my baby boy at 10 1/2 weeks. I felt a little sick like I was getting diarrhea(TMI), had little cramping wwnt ot the potty & passed some large clots & then 10 mins later baby landed in my palm. I forgot to say I had been bleeding on/off for over 10 days but 4 ultrasounds showed healthy baby.

I spotted brown for 10 days and red for 2 before passing the "bulk" of the pregnancy yesterday, I'm still bleeding but yesterday was by far the heaviest.
