    Default HCG after early miscarriage

    Hi,
    I'm after some advice because I can't find the answers I'm looking for. I had an early miscarriage/chemical pregnancy on the day I would've been 5 weeks pregnant. I got my BETA 23/11 & hcg was 312. I had blood tests on 30/11 as I had started spotting & my hcg had dropped to 180 & my progesterone was 7, on 2/12 my levels had gone to 190 & 5. I saw my OB 8/12 who confirmed everything & did an ultrasound which looked good & he couldn't see any retained tissue, I'd bleed for 5 days with 2 days of spotting before & after that so he didn't see the need for a d&c thankfully.
    I've had positive OPK's all this week, which tells me I still have HCG in my system but I'm wondering if anyone can provide any insight on how quickly it will drop to 0 so we can start TTC again? This was our first natural pregnancy after 2 successful ivf pregnancies & 1 failed cycle, so it was a miracle & very devastating but we're hoping we can get another miracle that sticks! We've been seeing a natural fertility specialist as we won't be doing any more Ivf so we are really keen to try again.

    TIA for any info.

    Default HCG after early miscarriage

    I ovulated 2 days after hcg was completely gone. (2 days after brown spotting stopped)
    Have you tried using a preg test to check?

    Thank you for your responses. Hpt's are still positive. I just figured because it was so early & my levels were so low, it wouldn't take this long to leave my system. It's so frustrating

    Thanks ScubaGal. I think I'll leave it for another week & then get some more blood tests to make sure it is going down. Know my lucky there's something they've missed. Sorry for your loss as well
