In brief: Until tissue is out

Sorry to hear you had a miscarriage.
Some people will pass everything naturally. Others will need a minor surgery called a d and c to remove the tissue. Your pregnancy test will continue to be positive until all of the tissue is out. How long that takes is going to vary from person to person. For some it is a few days and for others a few weeks.
