    Hey bettyboop - sorry to hear about your m/c. Apparently when you are not pregnant your hcg should be 5 or less. But I guess everyone's body takes a different amount of time to return to less than 5. Given that it's only been two weeks then things may be progressing ok but it just may take a little longer to get back to 'normal'. Have you been told to go for another test in a week or so? From memory my body took a little over two weeks to return to less than 5.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Bettyboop,

    I had a D&C 6 weeks ago now and O'ed 4 weeks to the day after it. I never had HCG levels checked, but would assume that it took at least 3 (maybe closer to 4?) weeks for my HCG to return to 0. I know how hard it is waiting :hugs: but hang in there for another couple of weeks and I'm sure your levels will be back to 0. I'm so sorry for your loss

    Hey betty boop - if you are still worried that there is something there then ask to go for another blood test so you can be sure. Don't sit and stress over it because that will get you nowhere, believe me I've spent so much time stressing over things and it's like taking one step forward & 2 steps backwards. Sometimes doctors aren't that forthcoming with info or tests either so you may need to be a little firmer with the doc. I always say to trust your gut instinct. Good luck, am sure things will be back to normal real soon & you'll have that BFP before you know it.
