how long did it take for your hormones to show negative


Hi, I started to miscarry on 4th October, heavy bleeding, clotting, contractions etc then that weekend what I thought passed pregnancy tissue.

So now still bleeding, however is lighter and appears darker on the pad. Still light cramping.

I did a pregnancy test last thursday which would be 7 days on from heavy bleeding - strong positive. I did another today, still positive but slightly lighter in colour.

Hormones feel up and down. I can be fine one minute, then like a switch flicked I rage and burst into tears. This process is hard. My husband is now worried that I might be suffering with post natal depression.

I rang my unit last week because I was losing so much so fast and they told me to expect it for upto 3 weeks. If I test positive then I should ring them back.

How long did it take for your levels to reduce back to normal.
And
From a natural miscarriage did you have any complications like tissue left behind.?

Thanks for reading....

I was told to wait 3 weeks before testing. Then ring after that if it was still showing positive. Mine was natural with no complications. X

Thanks. My 3 weeks is up nx thursday. Did you bleed for all that time too? I assume you tested at 3 weeks and it was negative? It's such a long process and want to feel normal again.

I bleed for 10days. Then I just waited till 3 weeks to test as I didn't want to worry myself testing earlier. Yes it was negative. Then my period started one week later which was a lot heavier than normal.

Thanks for your insight. I caved to and tested one week and two week and still positive. I'll hang in now until week three and hope it will be negative so we can move on.

Hopefully my period will come soon after I stop bleeding so we can plan to try again. Although emotionally I don't think I am quite ready for that but it helps to distract me thinking of the future.

Thanks for replying.

It took me 6+ weeks for the hcg to be less than 5. But I ovulated anyway about 3 weeks after the initial bleeding.

Sorry for your losses. I was due to test again today but I didnt. Bleeding has slowed now as has cramping so hopefully will stop over next few days. Plan may be to test over weekend which will put me just over 3 weeks.

Good luck with your journey, we will try again after my af shows.

My doc has been doing blood tests. 10/15 I was at 28,000 then 10/22 it was all the way down to 262. So hopefully next week it'll be 0.
I was 11+5 weeks
