Can a urinary tract infection cause miscarriage? and your hcg levels to drop?

Not likely except...: Generally only a severe urinary tract infection leading to a kidney infection could cause a pregnancy loss or miscarriage. And unless that happens (again truly rare) it is unlikely that pregnancy hormone levels will drop.
