Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

How long for HCG to reach zero after chemical?

I’m in a weird position. I had a chemical pregnancy two weeks ago, and as of 13 days ago my HCG was 9. I am only on cycle day 12 right now, but got a positive pregnancy test. Shouldn’t my HCG have gone down from 9 in the last two weeks? I didn’t even think 9hcg would give me a positive test even if it’s just stayed constant. I have no idea what’s going on. Waiting on blood work.

  • mackenzie06-2  5 and over is usually considered positive.  It can surprisingly take weeks or months sometimes for HCG to drop down below 5 (or to 0). 

    I'm sorry for your loss.
