Probably...: Cytotec (misoprostol) will usually cause you to pass the tissue left in your uterus. If it doesn't, a D&C is frequently performed. Its also a good idea to continue repeating the HCG level after the D&C until it is zero. This will ensure that there is no other problems related to the miscarriage such as gestational trophoblastic disease. Best Wishes!

Too early: It is really too early in pregnancy to see HB on ultrasound with hcg of that amount. Wait another week or two and look again. Good luck!
