    Default DX code help please!!

    AAPC: Back to School
    Doctor stated dx as "failed pregnancy". The pt had a positive BHCG of 60 and then a week later fell to 5.49. The pt states she never had any bleeding or cramping. I was looking at 634.90 but really don't like that. Any ideas??

    Thank you,

    I wonder if the patient was ever truly pregnant...

    She had 2 positive BHCG tests then a negative. I don't know much about that but I think it would be odd to have 2 positive then a negative.
