  • What can I expect of my hCG levels after a pregnancy loss?
    Most women can expect their levels to return to a non-pregnant range about 4 - 6 weeks after a pregnancy loss has occurred. This can differentiate by how the loss occurred (spontaneous miscarriage, D & C procedure, abortion, natural delivery) and how high the levels were at the time of the loss. Health care providers usually will continue to test hCG levels after a pregnancy loss to ensure they return back to <5.0

  • I have tests from when I had my first that still show positive, and he's 7. The tests were taken in February 2001. They look faded, but the lines are still easily visible.
