    Unfortunately with my BO my levels never went to 0 they lingered at 100. Then I had to have a D&C. After that I got my period 12 days later and was back at 0. 

    At first the OB said wait 2 cycles but once a period came she said we could TTC again right away. Some say 2 to be “safe”.

    Been thinking of you. Praying it goes fast and you’re KU soon!

    For 1 of my miscarriages it took over 2 months for my HCG to drop to zero.  The other 5 dropped FAST (i.e. within a week).  *hugs*  I’m so sorry for your loss hun.

    @MademoiselleL:  I think b/c you had alreay had the D&C they will drop fast and not take more than a couple of weeks. If you feel that you are ready to try again after 1 cycle, I say go for it. I’ll be rooting for you! 🙂

    My levels were extremely low the day after I miscarried (1100 or 11000, at 7.5 weeks cant recall).    It was my first pregnancy so I never had my levels checked prior to the miscarriage for comparison, it’s possible they were low the entire time.  Baby had a heartbeat though and was measuring close to on track the day before.  I supsect the levels started to drop before i bled as I lost my symptoms a day or two prior to the bleeding.  My tests were negative 2 weeks after the miscarriage but i didn’t bother checking to see if they actually would have been negative before that, I supsect they may have been negative only a week later as I ovulated again 3 weeks after I miscarried. I ended up getting my period back 36 days after my miscarriage.  As far as the waiting goes, do whatever feels right to you.  My doctor also recommended waiting 2 cycles to let everything go back to normal and to make sure everything had fully passed from my uterus.  However, the ER doc I saw said there was no need to wait at all.  I did some research and decided I would wait for one complete cycle after the miscarriage to make sure nothing was leftover, and I also wanted to make sure my LMP date would not be the date I miscarried as that was not a happy memory.  Most of the other reasons I have seen for doctors wanting you to wait longer are for dating purposes though but I was charting so I knew I wouldn’t have trouble identifying my ovulation date and therefore would know exactly how far along I should be in a future pregnancy.  This is extremely helpful after a m/c since you want to know how far along you should be so you aren’t faced with an u/s showing you are behind where you thought you should be and then fearing another m/c if in fact you just ovulated later for example.  I ended up getting pregnant the 2nd cycle after my m/c, so if I had listened to my doc I would have missed out on this baby.  I hope you don’t have to wait much longer for your levels to drop.  Waiting is such a tough part of the process.  Good luck!

    for me beyond letting your body heal is the emotional weight possibly miscarrying again only a month after you just miscarried.

    Thank you for posting this so we can all share our experiences.  

    Try not to stress yourself out.  That definitely won’t help the situation. :o)

    It took me about 3 weeks for my levels to drop after I miscarried.  I did it natrually so i’m not sure if that makes a difference or not.  I got my period exactly 28 days after the miscarriage.  My second periond I JUST got and that was 35 days after my last period. I’m hoping my body is ready to get pregnant again. I really don’t want this to happen again. I think i’m going to try and ovulation kit. I’ve never used one before.  Any recommendations on ovulation kits??
