    I'm not sure how quickly my levels doubled. ...

    But I've had bloods at 15hcg (11dpo) and 67hcg (17dpo) in seperate pregnancies. The results of the prefnancies are 5 and 1.

They should have been much higher though, but the window for what you "should" be at X amount of weeks differs greatly. I should have requested an ultrasound but I didn't know and trusted the doctors. Could have maybe saved me losing my tube in surgery if it hadn't have burst.
    I do know someone who had an original result of 19 and they went on to have a healthy baby though. Don't lose hope yet x
    Thanks for letting me know. I find this forum so helpful! Ectopic was one thing that crossed my mind but as my levels rose by 2 I'm hoping it's nothing lol.

    I asked the nurse whether I can get a period with a HCG at that level and she said yes and also said I can still fall pregnant with it so that's a plus too.
    Hopefully this bleeding ramps up and another cycle begins. I was so naive as to how tricky it can be to conceive and deliver a healthy baby!!

    I'm naive to this.. With a Chem pregnancy do you just end up with AF?

    Yup, it was a light AF. However the next month was extremely heavy. Like soaking through super tampons and pads in 30 minutes. Although, that only lasted a few hours and then it was gone.

    In retrospect I should have gone to a GP or told my OBGYN - but I never did. So I can't say 100% it was from the chemical - but there was no other reason for it, and it never happened again.

    I did another pregnancy test today and there is still a faint line there. Approx the same as yest and Monday. I have no idea what is going on. So frustrating!

    I'd be asking for a scan. Could be possible to still have retained product.

    Can I have retained product after a HD&C? Man that would suck.
    It's so weird because I've had a period since my surgery, then this is second cycle.
    The nurse just said to let them know if no AF by next week. Then Implied I'd have another BT.

    How heavy was the last one. Unlikely but still possible.
