Talk to your Dr: HcG levels can persist up to one month after a misscarriage or D & C. Talk to your Dr about your concerns post pregnancy. They can also monitor your levels until they are completely gone. An ultrasound can also confirm complete evacuation of the uterine contents.

Need more info: A laboratory may report a result of less than 5 that may be interpreted as 5. However a report of less than 5 may be anything less than five, including zero. Your doctor may wish to check with the laboratory for an explanation. Wish you good health!
