Sorry if this is long....on 2-21-07 I got a + PG test. On 2-26-07 I started bleeding and had bloodwork done. My HCG was 80. On 2-23-07 I had HCG done again and it was 66 amd the nurse said I would miscarry. I bled the Mon, Tues & Wed than it stopped. I have beening feeling SO sick the last 2 days and having a metal taste in my mouth....out of curiosity I took a HPT and STILL positive, with a darker line than before. What is going on?

it could be left over tissue causing the + or left over HCG from the m/c that is lingering. You can have symptons of pregnancy 4-6 weeks AFTER the m/c, cruel I know. I would see my dr and get my HCG taken again it is possible but very rare to get pregnant the following week after a m/c.

It does not sound like you had a M/C. I have had 2 M/C and have had 2 weeks of bleeding on one, and the other I had almost 4 weeks of bleeding. The one that was 2 weeks I was only approx 5 or 6 weeks along, but the other I was around 10 or 11 weeks. I would go back to the doctor, because it sounds like you could still be pregnant.

I was about 5 or 6 weeks along too....and the bleeding was mild Monday, heavier Tues and than about the same Wed...and it tapered off from there.

My last m/c i was between 5 and 6 weeks, i bled very very heavily the first day, moderately heavy the second and then down hil from there. If I were you I would just have a quantative test to measure your HCG levels done again to see where you are at. I believe it takes longer for HCG to leave the system than it does to get there. So sorry to hear about your loss.

I sugest going ot the doc. First off, it may take awhile for all the hcg to leave the body and it is possible to test pos after all tissue has pa__sed. Just because the test line is darker does not mean anything excpet that maybe that particular test had more dye than the previous one. It may be that you did not pa__s all the tissue. Three days is not a lot of bleeding. I had three days bleeding after a D&C when they removed most of the tissue of a missed m/c. It may be that you didn't miscary at all, although that seems unlikely since your numbers were declining. I would suggest going to your doctor. He may order another test to see that your numbers went back to normal. He may do an u/s, but it being so early a m/c it would probably be a v____al one and it may not show anything. At any rate, I would go see the doctor again. Good luck and I am so sorry for your loss. I suffered a m/c and I would nto wish that pain and heartache on anyone.
