How long do pregnancy hormones remain in your system after abortion?

How long do pregnancy hormones remain in your system after abortion?

A few weeks: Pregnancy hormone usually goes away in a few days to a few weeks (depending on how high they were when you started). If there is still some placenta tissue left in (which can happen even if you think nearly everything came out), then it can still make pregnancy hormone (hcg). If it hasn't gone away in a few weeks or if you still have bleeding or feeling pregnant, get an ultrasound to be sure. ...Read more

I have been diagnose of complete abortion and I didn't know that I am pregnant. But still am having high pregnancy hormones?

I have been diagnose of complete abortion and I didn't know that I am pregnant. But still am having high pregnancy hormones?

On its way down?: Beta-hcg (what we test for in urine/blood) is often known as hormone of pregnancy. Depending how far along you were with the pregnancy and when you had the "abortion." for example, your level is 12000 now and you had the abortion only 2-3 days ago, maybe it was 24000-30000 then. So, a repeat will tell if it is on a decline. If higher, look for pregnancy again. Good luck. ...Read more

I had an abortion 3 months ago and I took a pregnancy test today on 1/24/2013 that was positive, am I pregnant or is the hormone still in my system?

Likely New Pregnancy: Three months after a D&C your HCG levels should be <2. Unless you have retained tissue or a molar pregnancy which has turned into gtn (gestational trophoblastic neoplasia), both which are fairly rare after surgical evacuation of the uterus. Check with your OB & most likely your HCG levels are increasing c/w a new pregnancy. You would know if birth control was used & if you had exposures. Good luck. ...Read more

One month after abortion, I get positive pregnancy test and faint amount of hormones in blood, am I pregnant again?

Can't say for sure: It can take up to 8 weeks to completely clear HCG form blood following a termination: the higher the HCG the longer it will take. Have you had a period since the abortion? If 'no' it may still be residual, if 'yes' you probably need to follow blood levels to see what's going on. ...Read more

Is it possible for a chemical pregnancy (with the fetus "aborting" itself around 4 weeks-- when I tested) to cause a longterm hormone imbalance?

Is it possible for a chemical pregnancy (with the fetus "aborting" itself around 4 weeks-- when I tested) to cause a longterm hormone imbalance?

Unlikely: If you are no longer testing pregnant, its unlikely that the miscarriage of such an early pregnancy would have any long-term effects. There are some rare problems that can happen after a miscarriage such as gestational trophoblastic diseas and a cancer called choriocarcinoma. But both of these produce pregnancy hormone and can be ruled out with a simple blood pregnancy test. Best wishes! ...Read more

Some such as thyroid stimulating hormone can have profound effects upon the fetus. If there is a specific hormone you have in mind this question would be easier to answer. ...Read more
