Well: The pregnancy likely stopped evolving at 5-6 weeks though you were 11 weeks pregnant, these usually pass on their own, Misoprostol at 800 mcg vaginally can speed things up but at 5-6 weeks it doesnt always come at once leading to heavy bleeding and a d@c. Don't worry, ask about misoprostol, look it up, and get some pain medication to expedite. Sorry for your bad news. ...Read more

Is this a definite miscarriage my levels dropped from 93004 to 80000 in 48 hours i am 8 weeks?

Most probably no: If you have no pelvic/abdominal pains and no vaginal bleeding, you are very unlikely to be having a miscarriage. A pelvic sonogram will go a long way to reassure you. At this point in your pregnancy, blood betaHCG levels are not very accurate and not useful. Trust your body and see what happens. Consult your obstetrician and sonographer. ...Read more
