It took me 3 months for my HcG to return to normal. It can be a slow process, especially for those women who wish to start TTC again. There aren't any textbook numbers to look at when comparing ectopic/MC or any pregnancy loss. Like first comment states, as long as you are dropping you are normal. Best wishes!

The doctor is looking for you levels to keep dropping back to non-pregnant levels to signal that all tissues have been reabsorbed so that you don't have to have surgery. After a pregnancy has ended all the relevant tissue must be removed or reabsorbed or it can continue to grow and produce hcg but it isn't actually a pregnancy but out of control tissue that must be removed. As for your fertility, it depends on a few factors but statistically, 9 out of 10 women will have a normal pregnancy after a ectopic and 6 out of 10 women who have a ectopic pregnancy are pregnant again within 18 months with successful outcomes.

Try not to stress, people don't realize just how complicated pregnancy actually is, a lot of things have to go just right for it to be successful. I have had two miscarriages and it's hard, I know. Talk to your doctor about your concerns, they know your situation and odds. Best of luck
