My hcg is still at 72 and I'm 14 weeks post d&c. Definately get some bloodwork done and follow it down to 0. Thats what I'm doing.

I believe that if your HCG is above 20 then you can test positive. It took me FOREVER for my HCG levels to drop last m/c...about 12 weeks! I had 2 AF in that time. No one knows why it took that long but it did! If you are concerned go and get a couple of blood tests to see what the numbers do.

I would definitely keep in touch with your doc about things. Since my D&E July 8th, I've had to go get blood drawn once a week until hCG is below 5 because the pathology came back with some indications of a molar pregnancy.

I had a + HPT about 5 weeks after my d&c. Her name is Rhiannon and she's 4 now.

When I had my ectopic - it took a really long time for the hcg to drop. I've lost 3x times now - each time has been different as far as how fast the hcg dropped. Good luck and God Bless!!

I think normally it can take up to 10 weeks, but ideally it should be to 0 within 3 weeks or so.

I don't want to freak you out, but be sure your doctor continues to monitor you. I had a D&C 13 weeks ago. My hcg is stuck at 400. Had an u/s this week and found out they must have missed some material during the proceedure and it has now grown to golfball size. I am going to try the med Cytotec next week to get it to pass naturally, but if that doesn't work I'll need another D&C. This has been a nightmare for me, and such a long drawn out affair. Again, I don't mean to scare you but just encourage you to keep asking questions and stay on your doctor until your get hcg's down! Good Luck to you.

Did you go for your follow after your D&C? What were your levels then? I had a positive HPT about 6 weeks after my D&C, but it was a very, very faint positive. I had my AF 2 weeks after that. But I have read other posts on a different boards where the girls got pregnant 2 weeks after a D&C, so you never know.

Good luck, I hope everything turns out the way you want!! Keep us posted.

I have a miscarriage and D&C when I was about 6-7 weeks along. It has been almost 6 weeks now since the D&C. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was positive. Could my HCG levels still be high from the miscarriage. I called my Dr. and he is going to check my HCG levels with a blood test. Has anyone else had this same experience?
