Hi I miscarried on June 14 on July 15 I had a positive pregnancy test can I still have HCG in my body or am I pregnant?

Hi I miscarried on June 14 on July 15 I had a positive pregnancy test can I still have HCG in my body or am I pregnant?

Yes and Yes: If your HCG level was not followed after your miscarriage until it was zero, then a positive HCG level now could mean that you did not clear out all of the tissue or that you have HCG producing tissue still in the uterus. This could be a very serious situation and should be check out soon. It is also possible that you are pregnant again. ...Read more

5 weeks ago my hcg levels went from 380 to 140 in 48 hours but I still haven't experienced a real period and today I got a positive pregnancy test.

Low hcg level.: you most likely have a failing pregnancy. You need close GYN evaluation to make sure you don't have ectopic pregnancy. If you start experiencing severe low abdominal pains, don't hesitate to visit the ER. Otherwise keep an appointment with your GYN. ...Read more

I got a positive pregnancy test Saturday. MOnday my HCG was 152 and yesterday it went down to 143. Is it possible to have such a slight decrease and have a healthy pregnancy?

I got a positive pregnancy test Saturday. MOnday my HCG was 152 and yesterday it went down to 143. Is it possible to have such a slight decrease and have a healthy pregnancy?

Unlikely: The hCG levels typically rise throughout pregnancy until about 12 to 14 weeks when the levels decrease slowly for a few weeks. In early pregnancy, when the levels fall as you describe, it is a sign of a failed pregnancy and there is very little chance for a successful pregnancy outcome. You should be prepared for a miscarriage. See your doctor and keep your followup appointments. ...Read more

Hi if I had a positive pregnancy test then spotting and a negative blood test of only 3.4 for HCG was I pregnant or not pregnant at all?

Hi if I had a positive pregnancy test  then spotting and a negative blood test of only 3.4 for HCG was I pregnant or not pregnant at all?

Pregnant: The hCG level initially was high enough to trigger a positive pregnancy test. The low hCG level of 3.4 means that the pregnancy is probably declining if not now non existent. ...Read more

Inconsistent info: An HCG level of 8 is not diagnostic of pregnancy, the level needs to be 25 or greater. Your question was incomplete, but you need to repeat the HCG level to see if it has increased. In a normal pregnancy the level should double in two days. ...Read more

Even : Even though bleeding can be a sign of miscarriage, there are instances where bleeding can occur (especially in the first trimester), but the baby is still ok. I'm afraid you are going to have to wait until your appointment to know for sure. They may do additional blood testing and/or an ultrasound depending on your symptoms and how far along you are. Reasons to go to the er are fever, heavy bleeding, or severe pain. ...Read more
