Trying to Get Pregnant

HCG question

Anyone's hcg rise after dropping? My levels went from 8 to 5 and so far I haven't had any bleeding or cramping or anything to indicate a chemical pregnancy other than the levels. 

Re: HCG question

  • Hi hun, unfortunately that’s very unlikely. Also 8 as a single number or 800? Because 8 and 5 are very low. Bodies can take days/weeks to expel a miscarriage. I’ve had 4 consecutive losses myself, and I’m so sorry you’re having to go through this. 
  • I was 3 weeks when the levels were taken so just 8 then 5.

  • Less than 5 is considered not pregnant.  And no, 5 MCs and 4 of those we did betas to watch numbers go up and then go down.  They never went back up after going down.  And yes, it can take weeks/months to have numbers go down to 0 and even after you start having cycles again, it can take months to 'normal' out sometimes even to a new 'normal' for you.  Depends on the circumstances, how far along you were, etc.
