Yes: I'm sorry, but miscarriage sounds like a strong possibility if the size of the embryo is smaller than how far along you think you are, and also if there's no heartbeat. There almost always is an easily identifiable heartbeat by 7 weeks gestation. I could be wrong, but be prepared for the possibility that i'm correct. ...Read more

Pregnancy Loss (Definition)

A miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a fetus before the 20th week of pregnancy. (Pregnancy losses after the 20th week are called preterm deliveries.) A miscarriage may also be called a "spontaneous abortion." This refers to naturally occurring events, not medical ...Read more

Not sure why?: I am not sure why you would taking HCG hormone. You would have to clarify the reasons for its use in your situation. Also, if you think you miscarried 4 weeks ago and now are having bleeding and cramping, you need to be seen by your doctor to confirm that this is not an incomplete miscarriage, or something worse, such as an ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

Unlikely: There is some evidence that getting pregnant too soon after a miscarriage can increase your risk of a repeat miscarriage. At a minimum you should wait until you have your first period. It might be better to wait a couple of months to give your body a chance to heal. It would be unlikely that you would get pregnant 2 weeks after a miscarriage. ...Read more

Why would my hcg levels be at 13 5 weeks after a miscarriage?

Can take a long time: It can sometimes take a very long time for pregnancy hormone levels to completely go below the detection limit of the test (e.g., 5 mIU/ml). As long as there is pregnancy hormone activity around it is better to follow it to be sure it does not flare up. It is also good to be on effective birth control during this time period. Otherwise a new pregnancy can be mistaken for a flare up. ...Read more

HCG isn't the only: cause of nausea during pregnancy. High estrogen levels and other unknown factors may contribute to it. You don't mention if you've started having periods again. If all your hormones are back to pre-pregnancy levels and your periods have returned to normal, perhaps its time to look for another cause. I wish you the best. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Hcg level went up after 3 weeks of miscarriage?

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

How quickly can your hCG levels drop after a miscarriage?

7-60 days.: Return of the serum HCG concentration to undetectable following pregnancy termination varies widely from 7 to 60 days. The period of time depends primarily upon the HCG concentration at the time of termination. The HCG concentration peaks at 8 to 11 weeks at approximately 100, 000 miu. This is in contrast with term pregnancy, for which the HCG concentration is lower. ...Read more

Miscarried: An hCG level 25mIU/ml is considered positive Most women can expect their level to return to non-pregnancy level in 4-6 weeks and this time frame depends upon how high the hCG level was at the time of the miscarriage The level should be monitored by your heath care provider until it is back to ...Read more
