Ivf beta hCG numbers 1st 9 days post 5 day transfer 67, 4 days later 78, 2 days later 80 and 2 days later 165. Definite chemical pregnancy or ectopic?
Can't say yet: We can't diagnose your pregnancy over the internet. 67 is an ok first beta, but it should rise by at least 50% every 48 hours. There is a slim chance that this could be a normal pregnancy, but more likely a biochemical pregnancy (hcg levels go up then down, never get high enough to see pregnancy on ultrasound), a miscarriage, or an ectopic. If severe pain/bleeding go to er. Your md will follow you. ...Read more
I had once IUI resulted in chemical pregnancy no reasons for infertility i need advice whether to repeat IUI or move to IVF married 3 years?
Difficult choice: 6 cycles of IUI on injectable medications costs around the same as one cycle of ivf. One takes 6+ months and ivf takes 6 weeks. Here is the "rub". 6 cycles of IUI is not as successful as 1 cycle of ivf. So it is a choice. By doing iui, you "gamble" that it works in 2-3 attempts and save money; but if not, than ultimately it costs more because when IUI does not work, you have to go to ivf. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

An ectopic pregnancy, which is more common in ivf pregnanices, is a pregnancy that implants in the tube, and is usually determined based on symptoms, abnormally rising HCG levels and ultrasound. ...Read more
IVF/icsi/ccs pregnancy but miscarried at 7 weeks after seeing heartbeat.i had two natural chemical pregnancies.RPL normal.what could be wrong?uterus?
Early abortions X 3: Since your miscarriages are very early this suggests something other than the uterus. I recommend that you have several serum Progesterone drawn at 3 days intervals after ovulation. It may be that with a low Progesterone supplementing with vaginal Progesterone will get you through the critical period. ...Read more
