please see your gyn: U need an exam a quant bhcg and an ultrasound , depending on how high the beta HCG got, it can take a while for it to go to less than 5, also you want to make sure u do not have any retained tissue which would give u a perisitent+ bhcg also u want to r/o the uncommon occurence of a molar pregnancy so please see your obgyn.
