After D&C, how long for hcg levels to drop off


Hi Ladies,

I had my d&c done on Friday, around 2pm.My Hcg levels were never dropping still increasing right up until then. I would like to monitor my levels and make sure they get down to 0 since we would like to try again, so I bought a bunch of dollar store tests.

Did one tonight and got a blazingly dark positive, darkest I've seen actually and I did a test back at even 7.5 weeks it wasn;t even that dark and my hcg was beyond 30,000 at that point.

How long did it take you for your lines to start turning up much lighter on the pregnancy tests and or to eventually get a negative?

i think it depends on how far along you were/what your hcg started at, but I did blood tests and it took about 2 weeks for them to go down from about 31,000 to 5. Sorry for your loss.

I had medical management friday and mine had already dropped from 28.6k to 20k by then so i hope mine will be 0 in the next 2 weeks.

Thanks ladies.

Bump2baby: so sorry to see you also here. I remember you from another thread. I think we were in similar situations at one point. Kept having repeat scans which showed growth leading us to think things were good? So sorry we both had the same end result. Hope you are feeling well, and wish you well when you are ready to try again.

I'm sorry for your loss. Mine took forever to drop - when I had my D&C the HCG levels were also still on the rise, it took around 6 weeks, if I remember correctly to reach 0. But I'm probably the exception, not the norm!

Best of luck!

Thank you. Wow that is quite a while. Unfortunately I think mine will be similar, the tests are again still coming back super dark unchanged.
