hcg levels after miscarriage

Rena - October 30

We have two beautiful toddlers after 2 years of infertility treatments. We found out I was pregnant in Sept. and unfortunately miscarried Oct. 6. I am now being told my hcg levels are 70 and need to be less than 2 otherwise I will need to be referred to an oncologist...what is going on? I was 6 weeks when I lost the baby, shouldn't it take about the same amount of time for my levels and whatnot to return to normal? Please advise.

With an hCG of only 70 Iu/L, Idoubt that you have a tumor of the placenta (molar pregnancy). I would expect your hCG to be much higher. Your hCG levels may not have returned to negative, yet. It can take several weeks. It is also possible that you have a retained fragment of the placenta of your early pregnancy loss. Certainly adequate evaluation is apprpriate. If the physician seeing does notfeell comfortable, the Gyn oncologist shoud be able to do so, or a Reproductive endocrinologist can take care of it, as well.
Good luck.
