In brief: Yes

Yes beta h cg levels take some time to go to zero again after a miscarriage sometimes there can be retained products of conception in the uterus which causes the HCG levels to stay increased.
Sometimes there is a abnormal proliferation of placental tissue. If it persists for more than three weeks please have this evaluated with your ob/gyn.
