Can sudden bleeding for one day with a large blood clot be a miscarriage? Tested pos on pregnant test today 4 days lat, just stopped hCG diet shots 3 days
May not be pregnant:
The HCG diet shots will make a pregnancy test positive.
If the bleeding occurred when your period was due its most likely a period. Go to a doctor and have them evaluate you. Depending upon the dose the HCG can stay in your blood stream for several days and give you a false positive pregnant test. ...Read more

Need another...: A single HCG level isn't that helpful. Usually a second measurement is needed to see if the level is going up or down (and by how much). This will be interpreted by your provider. For example, a declining HCG level is a miscarriage. Best wishes! ...Read more
HCG levels: The HCG levels will decline rapidly to zero in about 6 weeks if you had a complete miscarriage. I wouldn't check it again unless there is concern about incomplete miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. If there is no pain or persistent bleeding, then it is a good sign that you are healing. ...Read more

Pregnancy hormones: Hcg should increase (double) every 48 hours. A normal pregnancy can have some form of variation to this. Follow up with your obgyn to make sure they are actually decreasing or increasing. A normal pregnancy can sometimes not follow this rule. ...Read more
Possible Pregnancy: Whatever clots or specimen you had when you had the miscarriage should have been examined by the pathologist to determine the presence of embryonic or fetal parts because otherwise the HCG elevation means you still have the conceptus/embryonic/fetal parts inside you. Other possibility is a growing tumor that is secreting hcg. ...Read more
Not necessarily.: As with anything else in nature, there is a physiologic variation regarding the doubling time for beta HCG in the first trimester. The rule of thumb is that it should double every 48 hours if it is a viable intrauterine pregnancy. Failure to do so suggests blighted ovum/miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, or even normal early pregnancy. See your gynecologist and get pelvic ultrasound to know for sure! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not really: One BHCG level really only confirms you are pregnant. It needs to be compared to subsequent levels and in the context of your clinical situation. How far along are you or should you be? Are you having bleeding and/or cramping etc. All these play into a possible diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Soon: 10 is nearly negative. You can resume ovulation within 2-4 weeks of a miscarriage. However, I would talk with your OB about possible causes of your miscarriage. In addition, take prenatal vitamins before conception to decrease the chance of another miscarriage. In addition, once you have a positive test ask your OB to check a progesterone level in case you have a luteal phase defect. ...Read more

I passed a sac 4 weeks ago and my hCG test came back negative. Could I still have had a miscarriage?
Miscarriage: Yes this still could have been a miscarriage. It all depends on when the test was done in relation to when the miscarriage actually occurred versus when the sac was passed. In other words we don't know when your body quit producing hcg. ...Read more
Hcg level 450 one week before natutal miscarriage. Now hCG level 950 one week later. What's going on?
Repeat the HCG: It is possible that your HCG level continued to rise after the first one a week before your miscarriage and is now slowly declining. There could be retention of some residual placental tissue that is still producing hcg. If there were still a viable pregnancy present one would expect a much higher HCG level after 2 weeks. Repeat the HCG to see if it is rising or falling. Consider an ultrasound. ...Read more
I had a miscarriage on February 11, 2015, and my hcg level was at 18.2 on March 5, 2015, my hcg level was 13 is that normal?
Not normal: Typically, the hcg level drops by half every 48 hours. So after 3 weeks a level of 18.2 should have completely gone to below detection limit of the assay (which can be, e.g., 5). You may want to continue having the hcg checked until it is below detection limit, which can take several more weeks. ...Read more
My hCG 11/29/12 1157 12/1/12. 501 12/4/12. When up to 959. Will i be having a miscarriage? Please help I'm confused and worried.
Yes: A decreasing b-hcg is not the sign of a viable pregnancy. I'm sorry, it's not gonna work out. You'll be ok. It will not affect your chances for the next one. We can find out so early now that many miscarriages that would have been un noticed get noticed and the rate of miscarriage or no implantation is as high as 70% of conceptions. Don't play the no baby ever thing on yourself; good luck. ...Read more
