Brief Answer: Kindly repeat the beta HCG test. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX From your history it seems to be a failing pregnancy, what we usually suggest is to repeat the blood test serum beta HCG after 48 to 72 hours see if there is doubling (i.e beta HCG level doubles) of the values, if so that means it is growing pregnancy. If the levels are falling then it could be failing pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy. Scan will show a gestational sac only if the beta HCG level is more than 1000. So you need to wait and repeat the beta HCG level. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
