Miscarriage: You need to see if there is still pregnancy tissue in the uterus from the miscarriage. Sometimes not all of the tissue is passed. It is all possible that you have conceived once again and this is a new pregnancy. If you miscarried on May 6th and passed ALL of the tissue naturally, your HCG level should have been zero by May 20th.
