Hallow Dear,

It is a good option to undergo another Beta hCG test again after a week. Drop in hCG levels from 85 to 8 is not a good omen. It is likely that the baby is non-viable and hence the hCG levels have started dropping. If next hCG test also shows further drop, the diagnosis of non-viable baby is strengthened. Ultrasonography would further confirm this diagnosis. Such pregnancies usually get aborted by themselves. With such decreasing levels of hCG, your Gynaecologist will advice you the same.

Anyway, do not loose your heart. You are young enough and future trials with IUI will give you success.

I hope this helps you.
