Yes: But repeat HCG one last time.

sounds like: U did since your bhcg went to less than 5 which is considered negative, but you should check one more just to make sure it is still low as rarely you could have developed a molar pregnancy after a misc- very uncommon but possible, if the HCG is rising again this would need to be considered, if it is still less than 5 then u need evaluation for your GI symptoms.
