Four days after embryo transfer the estrogen level is 950. Is this normal?

Four days after embryo transfer the estrogen level is 950. Is this normal?

Not sure: Generally, nine days after an embryo transfer, you draw your blood for a HCG level. Most clinics do not measure estrogen. If the results are low, it is generally indicative that you may not be pregnant. At our clinic, even if the levels are low, we repeat them in 3-4 days, "just to be sure". Sometimes, but not often, low e2 or HCG levels can result in a good pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

Super low estradiol level after embryo transfer caused miscarriage?

Not exactly: Actually low estrogen levels after an embryo transfer may indicate that the transfer was not successful and/or if you did get pregnant it might not be a "good" pregnancy and that you are at increased risk of miscarriage. In a good pregnancy, the body produces high levels of estrogen. The low estrogen levels were not the cause of the miscarriage but a symptom of it. ...Read more
