I agree that's really bad practice. It did take me 4-6 weeks for my hcg to get low enough to ovulate again and then a couple more to disappear completely. I've passed clots in a pregnancy before, and it was simply a threatened miscarriage not a complete mc. So they really should have done bloodwork or a scan. That's really irresponsible. I would ring them again and politely but sternly request either serial betas to be done or a scan or both.

I think I’ll ring them in the morning if Ican get through to them and ask their advice. I’m partially not surprised at how I e been treated by them. While I was there having my scan before my mc another woman was told she had an ectopic pregnancy infront of the waiting room with no consideration.

I wouldn’t ask advice. I’d tell them what needs to happen

Yeah I'd definitely go for a second opinion. I had a practice do that to me once. They blew me off, told me I was going to miscarry no matter what and gave me some depression meds to get through it. Never offered follow up scans or anything so I hiked myself to a different doctor. I just wanted to make sure I really was going to miscarry. They gave me three scans and did bloods at the new place. Sure enough my levels were going down and my scan showed no growth, but at least I felt comfort knowing that I truly was miscarrying rather than waiting in limbo.

On a side note (I've miscarried three times total) it took me between 2-6 weeks for my levels to be completely negative, in which case most pregnancy tests would still be picking up the hcg, so yes, it can take some time.

I would definitely call the EPU back and tell them you need another scan. x

I agree with above advice. Don't ask them, tell them. Demand another scan. This is your health, and they shouldn't be messing around like that. When I had my mc at 8 weeks, despite the fact I had bled heavily, lost clots and was in a lot of pain, they still insisted I come in for a scan to make sure I had miscarried everything. Thankfully it wasn't complicated and I had lost everything naturally. They didn't ask me to test, they just scanned me. Most efficient way to do it imo

It took 3 weeks for my results to go back to normal, I'd definitely be going back though, blood work or scan is obviously needed xx
