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

Ectopic/cervical: You have a rare type of ectopic pregnancy which the md is using a first line of rx with Methotrexate in less than 8 weeks of gestation hopefully. If the HCG is still elevated the surgery is necessary to remove the pregnancy before it ruptures in the cervix through the uterine or descending vaginal artery. ...Read more

Would hCG at 634 be very early into pregnancy? Within a week of pregnancy maybe?

Would hCG at 634 be very early into pregnancy?  Within a week of pregnancy maybe?

Early, yes. : I think i just answered a follow up question about this topic. The HCG usually doubles every two days. It is not exact and it is not really possible to say exactly what day of pregnancy you are based on the hcg. This number is probably more than a week pregnant though. In very early pregnancy, the HCG may not even be detectable yet. ...Read more
