After my miscarriage I just wanted to know when my body would get back to normal. I really wanted to start trying again and you can’t do that until your hcg levels go back down to normal. I googled everything I could trying to figure out when on average that would happen. But since it is so different for everybody, there really wasn’t any information on it for me to read. I did however find it incredibly helpful, if not just reassuring, to hear other people’s personal experiences with their own hcg levels. So I am going to share with all of you how long it took mine to go down.
On January 31st, 4 days prior to any indication of my miscarriage, my HCG levels were 9982. At this point I was one day shy of 9 weeks pregnant.
The day I started spotting, February 4th, my levels had gone down to 7450.
One day after, on February 5th, my levels were down to 5115. I would have been 9 weeks and 4 days pregnant. This was the day of my complete miscarriage. I believe it’s important to note as well that I miscarried naturally on this date and everything had passed on its own.
My next blood draw would not be until February 28th, exactly 3 weeks and 2 days after my miscarriage. I went in on this day because I started spotting and was having signs of impending ovulation. On this date my HCG levels had gone all the way down to 5, so back to normal.
I do not know what my HCG levels were prior to January 31st, when they were 9982, as that was the first day I had blood drawn. I also do not know when my baby grew to. I hadn’t had any signs of miscarriage until the day before it happened, at 9 and 1/2 weeks pregnant. I hope this information is helpful to anybody else that is wondering about HCG levels after miscarriage and if you have any questions at all I’d be happy to answer them.
