I had a beta yesterday after D&C on the 15th of june and it is still positive. Anyone know how long it should take to drop to O? I went through hell in 2010 when I MC naturally and some placental tissue was left inside(later removed by surgery)it took over 3 months for beta to drop.

I am not sure Mary as I never tested my beta after a m/c

and just went w/ an ultrasound after my natural miscarriages to make sure everything passed and w/ my D & Cs then my OB always monitored my bleeding and moods. My OB commented to me on my last m/c w/ a D & C that I was very "estrogen" based on my mood and feelings at the time. I was very put out by her comment but everything bothered me so much at that time and I guess she was right but I still hated that comment.

If you are worried then call and talk to your doctors nurse to see what they have to say. It took me about 2-3 months to feel normal after my last m/c in Feb.

It must be different for everyone. My beta was back to 6 yesterday, and it's only been 2 weeks since my natural m/c. My beta was 37 a week ago, and 900 the day after the m/c.  My ultrasound yesterday (and the day after the m/c) showed that everything was normal.

I haven't noticed my moods being different, althought everyone warned me they'd be erratic. That hasn't happened yet... I feel as logical as ever. happy.gif
