Does pregnancy test level above 25 signify recent miscarriage or new conception?

Confirmed by the hospital 28th December I miscarried. I had a scan, blood tests and the levels were going down a lot every other day. 85 to 62 to in 40's etc. technically the levels would have gone down to minimal by now? Me and my parter are trying again - took a test again three weeks from 28th and says I'm pregnant 1-2weeks clear blue. I feel bloated a lot, however is it leftovers or a new pregnancy? Pregnancy tests detect levels above 25, so surely it's a new one as it's nearly been a month since I miscarried?

Dear member,
Thanks for writing to healthcare magic.
As you have mentioned that the pregnancy test is positive it would be better to do a blood test for pregnancy, and repeat levels after 72hours. A healthy viable pregnancy has increasing levels.
If it is incomplete miscarriage of previous month Torres remain same or will be decreasing.

i recently miscarried at the and of July. Had bleeding on and off for about 3 weeks then the bleeding stopped. I went for blood several times to the point my levels were down to 30. 4 weeks after that, i took 3 pregnancy tests and all came back positive. i am not bleeding (light) and have cramps.

I have been spotting for 2 weeks. A couple days I was pretty crampy but now its gone. Last saturday I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive. I went to the er on Monday b/c I don t have insurance and wanted to check everything b/c of the continuous spotting. It showed a hcg level of 799 but the ultrasound showed no gestational sac . But they did find a napothian cyst and a hemmoragic cyst on my right ovary where some of my pains were. Do you think the cyst on my ovary could be the cause of the spotting and pains. I have still feelings of pregnancy. And this is unlike any of my other 4 miscarriages. I m praying this will pass and the pregnancy will continue okay!! erika
