How does hCG work on a frozen transfer?

How does hCG work on a frozen transfer?

No impact: The HCG shot is given an order to help you ovulate, and if you are having a frozen transfer then you have no need for ovulation and so this medication would not usually be used ...Read more

Well: Sometimes they will go up well, the not go up, then drop, or go up slowly pointing to a tubal pregnancy. Not 2 worry u, that's likely not it but follow closely. I'm sorry if it doesn't work out; it's extremely stressful. ...Read more

I had 2 5 day blastocysts transferred and 12 days later my hCG was 3829 then 2 days later it was 6079. is this good?

Yes! Congratulations: An hCG level that doubles in 2 days means an embryo is developing normally. Congratulations! You're pregnant! It's very early, but you ARE pregnant! ...Read more

Probably not...: Given that it's essentially 31 days after "LMP" (15+3+13), bhcg should be detectable by urine pregnancy test (which usually has threshold of 25) so if the HCG is 2.8, this cycle may not have been successful. You should discuss with your REI doc - see if there's any other reason and also planning for future cycle (s) ...Read more

I had two embryo transfers (day 3) on 21st april. On 2nd may my hcg was 209 and on 4th may it was 211. Clearly it didn't double, what's going on?

Embryos stop growing: When hCG fails to double in 48 h after the first pregnancy test, it usually means that the embryo failed to develop. It is called chemical pregnancy. It could be due to abnormal embryo, or uterine enviroment not suitable for embryo development. Please be ready to try again, you are very young, and your chance of success is excellent! ...Read more

Ivf beta hCG numbers 1st 12 days post 5 day transfer 1st went 61, 48hours later went 95, 48hours later went back 73, 48 later went up 108 isit normal?

Ivf beta hCG numbers 1st 12 days post 5 day transfer 1st went 61, 48hours later went 95, 48hours later went back 73, 48 later went up 108 isit normal?

Unfortunately not: Your HCG levels do not sound like they can be consistent with a healthy pregnancy, particularly an ivf pregnancy when we know exactly how far along you are. Most likely this is a biochemical pregnancy (very early miscarriage) or there is a small chance of ectopic pregnancy. You'll want your doctor to monitor you closely until the situation is more clear. Sorry, and good luck going forward! ...Read more

Is 67 a low beta hCG 9 days after a 5 day blastocyst tansfer? Ivf.

No: There is no specific initial HCG level that is considered normal. Most reproductive endocrinologists like a level of 50 or more miu/ml. Most importantly HCG repeated 2-3 days latter should double, in your case 130-140miu/ml. Best whishes. ...Read more

What is the difference between hCG level and bata level for a 3 day IVF transfer? My numbers are 1508 hCG and my bata #is 24.19

Hormone: The pregnancy test commonly referred to as HCG is actually a measure of the beta subunit of the HCG molecule, so you may hear it referred to as beta hcg, hcg, or beta and they are the same test. I think you may be mistaken on the second test-- the result seems more consistent with a Progesterone level. ...Read more

HCG levels: In pregnancy HCG is expected to approx. Double every 48 hours. Abnormal rise could be due to several factors such as abnormal pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy. It is important to also check and see if all tests were performed at the same lab. Ectopic pregnancy possibility should always be considered as it can lead to severe complications. An evaluation by your doctor is a must in this situation. ...Read more

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

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

Beta HCG level 920 twelve days past embryo transfer. Is that normal? What are normal levels post-transfer?

Repeat: A single value does not mean much except that you are pregnant. A repeat test should about double every 48 hours and a progesterone level would give an indication if it's a good pregnancy. ...Read more
