Do I need a curettage if hCG levels do not decrease after an abortion?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez (embryologist).

The specialist will always be the one to assess the situation. It is true that the gynecologist may choose to perform a uterine curettage to eliminate the embryonic remains that cause the hCG not to decrease after the abortion, if they are not expelled naturally.
