Pregnant after a Loss

Elevated Hcg after D&C

So I'll just get straight to my story.

I was 11 weeks along when I went to my first appt, found out I had a blighted ovum and had a D&C the next Monday (January 31st).  I kind of felt pregnant a week ago so I took a pregnancy test and it was positive.  However, I have a bicornuate uterus and the MD said she wasn't sure she got everything out with the D&C.  Plus I'm STILL bleeding after the D&C, it waxes and wanes and most days not enough to bother with a tampon, but definitely still bleeding.  My thought are that there must be a piece still left in my uterus, but she tested my hcg this Thursday (March 17th) and it was 1840 which I thought was pretty high even if there is a piece left.  I follow up with her on Monday to see if the hcg goes up or down  So I know my mystery will soon be solved, but I was wondering if any of you had a similar experience and what the results were.  My husband thinks I'm pregnant, but I have kept a mindset that it's just left over tissue.  I don't want to get my hopes up.

Re: Elevated Hcg after D&C

  • I am a little confused on the details here, to be honest, but I think it's highly unlikely they performed a d&c and you would still be pregnant, but that's just my take on the matter. Or perhaps I'm misunderstanding and you were ttc post d&c?

    We have had a few ladies here and on TTCAL who had to go back for left over tissue after a d&c.

    Good luck and I hope you have an answer soon.

  • When I had my D&C they didn't get all tissue out so I had high hcg count for several weeks and bled for several weeks and took a long time for the rest of the tissue to get out. Sorry you are having to go through this!
  • We weren't really "trying" but we weren't using any protections so there's the possibility that it could be a new pregnancy which I highly doubt, but I just wanted to see if other people have had a similar experience and what the outcome was.

  • I'm sorry you are going through this. A friend of mine had to have a repeat D&C due to leftover tissue also. Your number sounds high. Hope you get some answers soon.
