Pregnancy: Urine HCG levels follow serum (blood) levels. Hcg in blood comes from the pregnancy and nothing else; a miscarriage (often) has low HCG because the pregnancy is abnormal, the low HCG doesn't cause miscarriage.

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
