  • Your levels might not dissipate enough to read a 'neg' on a pregnancy test for up to two months.

    Your levels are down, but are still high enough to register on a pregnancy test....which, by the way, why are you taking anyways?

  • My sister had a D&C and her levels didn't go down to a zero until 2 1/2 months later. It varies from person to person.
    It wouldn't make sense for your levels to just suddenly drop to zero. Hormones take longer to disspate, even if your pregnancy has been terminated. Its the same thing if you miscarry...your body just doesn't dissapate all the hcG in your body.

  • D&C you need to know a little about the uterus and cervix. The uterus is a pear-shaped, muscular organ that sits in the lower abdomen. The top of the uterus is wide and it narrows like the neck of a bottle at the bottom. The lower third portion of the uterus is its neck which is called the cervix. The cervix is round and has a small opening called the OS. During your GYN exam your physician can see the cervix by using a speculum -- an instrument used to separate the walls of the vagina.

    The inner wall of the uterus is lined by endometrial tissues. The endometrial tissues thicken during the first part of your menstrual cycle. Once ovulation occurs progesterone acts to stop this thickening, and changes the endometrial lining so that it is ready to accept a pregnancy should it occur. If pregnancy doesn't occur, hormone production ceases and the endometrium breaks up and is shed as menstrual blood
