Welcome to ehealthforum,
In normal women (non-pregnant women), the HCG levels should be undetectable (ideally). The levels are known to double within 48-72 hours in a normal pregnancy. Some women can have slow doubling of HCG levels which could indicate possibility of ectopic pregnancy or impending threatened abortion. If the levels are falling or dropping, it indicates miscarriage and fetal demise. If pregnancy is ruled out and you still have detectable HCG hormone, it could suggest possibility of hormone producing tumor or possibility of products still remaining that needs to be removed. Visit your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and clarifications.
Take care.
