Doctor

A:   HCG concentrations should drop rapidly following a miscarriage and should be undetectable within 2-3 weeks. If hCG does not fall to undetectable levels, it may indicate remaining hCG-producing tissue that will need to be removed. You may need to see your doctor to see whether it is a new pregnancy or a retained products of conception that is causing the positive HCG.
