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.

Sometimes, but not often, low e2 or HCG levels can result in a good pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more
