Pregnancy test positve 1-2 weeks on sept 6 (ivf), but no gestational sac on scan, hCG 297 on 18 sept.?

Shouldn't at 297: With quant of 297 it would be impossible to see a normal gestational sac, generally it must be 1500 or above. The quant sounds low based on the dates you give; i'm certain your ivf doctor can help. ...Read more

Trigger shot gave +: The first pregnancy test you took, if too soon after the embryo transfer, was probably positive from the HCG 'trigger shot' that you took before your egg retrieval (hcg is pregnancy hormone). If you had a blastocyst-stage embryo transfer, wait 9 days post transfer before taking a pregnancy test. Talk to your clinic. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can twins cause an early false pregnancy test I mean like at 2 or 3 weeks after ivf?

Pregnancy test: If you had a retrieval 2 - 3 weeks ago and the test is positive, the test isn't early and you are pregnant. Still, the pregnancy may not continue so your doctor may continue to monitor the levels to see if they are going up appropriately. Then, a sonogram will confirm the pregnancy. Still, you can miscarry so you should follow your doctor's instructions. ...Read more

I got pregnant via ivf, spotted for 2 weeks, had a home pregnancy test on the 5th week and it showed negative. I am confused?

No longer pregnant: A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result by this time. If the test is negative, that means there is not a pregnancy. One can repeat the test, using a different brand of test, and/or call the ob-gyn for advice. It is normal for many conceptions and early pregnancies not to be successful, as that may be one way the human body works to ensure the healthiest babies are born. ...Read more
