Couldn't find what you looking for?


I was told last Tuesday that I had a miscarriage. The said my hcg llevel was 16. I had some bleeding for about 4 days and then it stopped. I still feel pregnant I have all the pregnany symptoms still. Im not sure what to do. Help please!!!


Hi Jessica,

16 is low but without knowing if it the value is increasing or decreasing we can't be sure.  You won't "immediately" not feel pregnant.  It does take time for the hormone levels to decrease and that will vary depending upon how far along you were.

Miscarriages are very common early on.  Many women, years ago, didn't even know they were having a miscarriage they thought it was just a late and heavy period.  With the advent of early home testing that all changed.

Sorry for your loss.  Hope it helps.
