Is there any benefit to using hCG after frozen embryo transfer?

Is there any benefit to using hCG after frozen embryo transfer?

Unlikely: You mean natural cycle frozen embryo transfer with HCG used to trigger ovulation. There is no evidence that using HCG has additional benefits compared to awaiting natural lh surge and spontaneous ovulation. Hcg injection though may help with timing of frozen embryo transfer as compared to awaiting lh surge which may be missed or happen in an inconvenient day. ...Read more

How early can I do a pregnancy test after frozen embryo transfer?

Pregnancy post ET: It is not uncommon to have a little delay of starting a pregnancy after fresh or frozen et. But if you wait 2 weeks post transfer you should be able to tell. I have used tens before and after et according to the literature from china, and it seems to be increasing the pregnancy rate. If you are close to the ny area i suggest you schedule a consultation. ...Read more

18 days past embryo transfer my hCG is 3665 iu/l what does this mean? (3 embryos transffered)

18 days past embryo transfer my hCG is 3665 iu/l what does this mean? (3 embryos transffered)

Well....: first, it certainly means you are pregnant. I suspect that number seems high and multiple pregnancies raise HCG, so, I suspect multiple pregnancies, while more than 3 is theoretically possible, 2 or 3 is what the result will be BUT, in any conception, the risk of very early embryo loss is quite high, so, successful pregnancy likely, multiple is likely and, you WILL need ultrasound in a few weeks ...Read more

If the Hcg titre is 78.87, measured 12 days after embryo transfer of 2 embryos, 3day post fertilisation, both are8 cells. Is this level good or low?

Very early: It is good that you have a positive pregnancy test. Not many other conclusions can be made form this limited information. Usually the doctors will check the BHCG over a few days to establish a normally rising trend. Eventually ultrasound will be done to verify a normal pregnancy ...Read more

Unusual: That's an unusual approach, at least in the us it would be...But you should always always always follow the instructions of your ivf specialists, ivf is not a committee opinion.
