It takes a few weeks: It takes a few weeks for the beta HCG level to drop after a miscarriage.. If you did not have a D&C and aborted spontaneously, you should be getting blood drawn every week for a quantitative beta HCG level to make sure the beta level goes down to zero. Ultrasound is not perfect at diagnosing retained tissue. If you continue to bleed, you may need a d&c. See your doctor !
