How long does hCG at 400 take to drop down to 0 .its been 5days and pregnancy test still coming positive had a miscarriage a month a at six weeks?

Roughly: hCG drops at roughly the same rate it rises when a pregnancy fails, so an hCG of 400 can easily take 30 days to drop down to 10 or less. If you are concerned you should ask your doctor (or a doctor) to check a quant hCG again. ...Read more

If there's a possibility of miscarriage how long will a pregnancy test show positive?

Several weeks: A pregnancy test will be positive as long as there is tissue in the uterus releasing hcg, or "pregnancy hormone". A growing pregnancy will always make hcg. A miscarrying pregnancy will still have a positive urine test, but may have a decreasing trend on a quantitative (numeric) blood test for hcg. Hcg will remain present for several weeks after a complete miscarriage. ...Read more

Wondering if I am pregnant I have had my tubes tied for 13 yrs. But had miscarriage 2 yrs. Ago. Now I am 2 weeks late on my period my family dr. To me take a home pregnancy test if i didn't start by tuesday or wednesday so i did and it read negitive and

Wondering if I am pregnant I have had my tubes tied for 13 yrs. But had miscarriage 2 yrs. Ago. Now I am 2 weeks late on my period my family dr. To me take a home pregnancy test if i didn't start by tuesday or wednesday so i did and it read negitive  and

Obviously : Obviously when you had your tubes tied you should not have gotten pregnant again. I am concerned that you were able to even detect a faint negative on your home pregnancy test. We can detect pregnancy hormone (HCG) when the home pregnancy test is negative but you can see a faint line in the test area. I would recommend reporting this to your doctor and asking for a serum quantitative HCG test to make sure you are not pregnant. The reason for this extra concern is that with a prior tubal ligation, a pregnancy can be a tubal pregnancy which can be very dangerous. You need to be absolutely sure you are not pregnant and only a serum blood test can do this for you. ...Read more

Just took a pregnancy test and it came out positive but i bled last week..Did I have a miscarriage?

Need to repeat test: Loght bleeding during pregnancy doesn't necessarily mean a miscarriage, but it could. A pregnancy test can stay positive for a few days after a miscarriage. A doctor can perform a quantitative HCG test. This is a pregnancy test that has a number. If the number goes up by a certain amount when the test is repeated, you are still pregnant, but if it goes down, then there has been a miscarriage. ...Read more
