So I'm sitting here getting my levels drawn again because Monday they were 4.2 and I'm five weeks past my miscarriage .... Blah I really don't want a d&c shouldn't they be zero now ?

If your levels are below 5, then why are they still drawing blood?

Have the dr's said anything about you needing a D&C because of your levels?

Are there any factors that lead you to believe you would need a D&C? ie. continued bleeding.

I was told it could take 6 weeks. If your under 5 though you shouldn't need anything.

They stopped drawing my blood and told me there was no tissue left when I was down to 7. My OB said that 5-0 is back to normal (meaning not pregnant)

The other ladies are right-below 5 is "not preg"... even without being preg my number runs about 2-3 at points in my cycle, so your number may never be zero. Hugs you shouldn't need a dnc

Monday was 4.19 ..They are now at 4.2 idk what the issue is .. They are making it out to be a big deal . They drew my blood and told me to come back in a month which is why they drew it again :/ they say I really need to see my doctor but don't have appointments till Monday. Well I start my new job Monday so ..... The chance of me making an apt is slim

Just a random question- but do you still feel any pregnancy symptoms? The slight raise (0.01 to be exact) doesn't really have me concerned.

And if they act like they don't know what they are doing- find someone else.

I had a miscarriage early March 2013. My levels were going down very slowly after my miscarriage. I finall had a D&C and levels went to zero in like 3 days. Good luck to you. Hope everything works out.

I agree with the other ladies if your levels are below 5 then you shouldn't have to do the blood draws anymore unless you are still having some bleeding.
