What should your pregnancy hormone be post abortion?

I recently had an abortion and want to know when my HCG will go down.


Answer by  Jenna16 (224)

Following an abortion, HCG, or pregnancy hormones will decline rapidly at first, and then will continue to decrease more gradually, usually at a rate of about 50% every 2 days. In the first week following an abortion, the pregnancy hormone should have declined by at least half, or 50% of what it was prior to the abortion.

After a loss of a pregnancy, through miscarriage or abortion, your HCG number (human chorionic gonadotropin) will drop in 5-6 weeks. The HCG is produced during pregnancy, so you should'nt have the hormone otherwise. The number HCG hormone level doubles every 48-72 hours from the first day of pregnancy, and will fall every week after.

Your body is going to go up and down with it's hormone levels because it was technically expecting a pregnancy but now it's going through the cycle of a miscarriage. Expect a little depression and weird mood swings so give it a couple months.

Usually your pregnancy hormone will go down in about 2-3 weeks. Your body was changed and it did not do it on its own. It will take time for your body to heal.

HCG should decrease rapidly directly after your abortion, then will decline more slowly. Within the first one to two days, your hCG levels should go down about 50%. After that, it should start decreasing 50% over two days. Exact levels cannot be given because it would depend on when in your pregnancy you terminated.

Your HCG will start tapering off soon after your abortion. HCG has a half-life of about 48 hours, which means every 2 days, the levels should reduce by half. Depending on how far along you were on your pregnancy it may take up to a few weeks for the levels to drop completely.

It depends how far along you were in your pregnancy before termination. It can be anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks after termination; If concerned, get a blood test.
