My hCG levels haven't decreased to zero since three weeks early miscarriage and i'm spotting lightly again. What does that mean?

Could be normal..: Your level may never reaches zero--as some nonpregnant females have level at 3-4 all the time, up to 5 is considered normal. Having a miscarriage just few weeks ago, your next period may not be normal--could be lighter or heavier than usual. If you are concerned that you could be pregnant again, do a quick hpt. Consult with doc. Good luck. ...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

Blighted ovum: There are so many things that must happen just right at just the right time for us to have normal babies that it is miraculous that it happens at all.Some studies suggest that 1/2 of all pregnancies end in miscarriage and 1/2 or the time we don't even realize we are pregnant.There are a lot of things that can cause this including genetic problems.See a doctor specializing in high risk pregnancies ...Read more

I had a miscarriage two 2 weeks at 6weeks and 4 days.Is it to early to start and try to concieve.I  have no bleeding and hCG level is down to 4.?

Sure, if U want to.: There is no limitation to sexual activity after a miscarriage, other than how you feel and if you think you are ready for it. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily orally and resume sexual activity as soon as you feel up to it - with or without protection depending on whether you desire a pregnancy at this time or not. Best of luck! ...Read more

Just had my third miscarriage in a row and when i started bleesing went to a&e and was told my hCG level was 5 can it be a problem with the progestron?

Could be cervix, etc: This could be due to an incompetent cervix and may need what is called a cerclage to correct it. There could be a Progesterone deficiency and so supplements may help. There could be other issues, like chromosomal abnormalities, preeclampsia, and hypothyroidism involved, so it would be smart to see your doctor for an exam and hormone studies to find out. Best of luck. ...Read more
