How many ladies had their period after a miscarriage but still had some levels in them?

Ok for those who don't know. I had a D&C 8 weeks ago becuase I had a blighted ovum and was not miscarrying naturally on my own.
I had my period last week Jan 30th. I had my levels checked and they were at 17.5. Ok so you would think being as though I bled heavily for 4 days they would be to under 5 now right? So why am I getting a faint line on my pregnancy test still? Has anyone ever experienced anything like this. I am loosing it here. I just want to try again for our second baby!!!

  • This is something you should discuss with your doctor.

  • Plan on it when I get my report back where my levels are at. But I wanted to see of any other ladies had experienced this.

  • You can still test slightly positive and have low HCG levels in your blood for a while after a miscarriage.
