HCG Level 9 Weeks After D Amp C

JandD - January 5

I had a D&C on 11/1/05. I had twins and my levels were at 167,000 at the time of D&C. They have not dropped back to 0 yet. Last week they were at 181, 2 days later at 125, 5 days after that at 79 (over 9 weeks after the D&C). What is going on? My doctor wants me to come in next week for another BETA to keep an eye on it, but tells me that she is not worried at all. This is completely scaring me as everything I read says the level should drop to 0 in 4 to 6 weeks, especially after a D&C. Could this be normal??? I am assuming this is left over tissue that was missed during the D&C. Could this be scarring my uterus???

Oh gosh Jan I am so sorry! I a__sumed that with a D&C your levels would fall a bit quicker than naturally. I would be nervous too - how pregnant were you when you miscarried? I wonder if having been pregnant with twins just makes it take longer to come back down? But you would think if all the tissue was removed with a D&C, that wouldn't be the case. I'm stumped. Let me know what your doctor says.

JandD, it took 11 weeks for me to get a period after a d&c, my levels were 50,000 at the time, so they took a really long time to drop also, hang in there!
