Molar Pregnancy Ivf
Im 7 weeks pregnant from ivf, hCG rising, now at 20700. 7 week scan had gest sac @ 13mm and yolk sac, no fetal pole or heartbeat. Is pregnancy doomed?
I am afraid so.: Your transvaginal sonogram should have shown a fetal pole and heart tones after a beta HCG level of 6, 000. Your rei specialist can fill you in on the issues of early pregnancy failure after ivf, which include molar pregnancy, blighted ovum, heterotopic and ectopic pregnancies. At your age, you should achieve a successful pregnancy within 2-6 ivf cycles. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
A molar pregnancy, or hydatidiform mole, is a rare mass or growth that forms inside the uterus at the beginning of a pregnancy. It is a type of gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD). After treatment, serum HCG levels will be followed. It is important to avoid pregnancy and to use a reliable contraceptive for 6 - 12 months after treatment for a molar pregnancy. This allows for accurate testing to be sure that the abnormal tissue does not return. Women who get pregnant too soon after a molar pregnancy have a greater risk ...Read more
I have had tv u/s after IVF pregnancy at 6 w 5 days (h/r 110), 7 w 4 days (h/r 130) and 8 w 4 days (h/r 140). The h/r seem slow. Is this a concern?
Do you mean...: ...Tests preparing for ivf, or once you are pregnant? Minimal preliminary tests include blood, evaluation of uterus and ovaries, uterine cavity, and usually a mock transfer - in specific cases more testing may be done. After conception earlier monitoring with blood and ultrasound is common to determine fetal number and confirm location. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mostly like natural: I'm not certain i understand what you're asking, but pregnancy symptoms are related to the pregnancy not how you got that way. In other words, if you account for possible multiples, and for the fact that ovaries are stimulated in ivf, the symptoms are the same as in a natural pregnancy. ...Read more
Alot like natural: With a singleton ivf pregnancy the do's/dont's are pretty much the same as with a natural pregnancy; if you are on Progesterone supplementation you must of course continue that. Beyond that, make sure you are following your doctor's instructions, call their office whenever you are not sure. ...Read more
IVF: If you mean 3 weeks after embryo transfer you should've had a positive pregnancy test, serial HCG should be rising appropriately. Transvaginal ultrasound could show a gestational sac(s), but usually isn't done for another week when you can see/measure a fetal pole. Fatigue, occasional pressure and cramping, and mild spotting are all very common. ...Read more
How do I cope with a failed cycle in ivf?When do I try again? Is it likely pregnancy will be achieved the second time round?
Follow Up Consult: Without knowing the context of your need for ivf and the parameters surrounding its provision, it's hard to tell you anything about likelihood of pregnancy the 2nd time around. I would encourage you to speak to your provider about the prognostics of a 2nd try. It's expensive, time consuming, and sometimes heartbreaking, but you'll otherwise always wonder about this and you need closure. ...Read more

In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology. Ivf is a procedure used to treat fertility problems and assist with the conception of a child. During ivf mature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. A few days later, the fertilized egg (embryo) or eggs are implanted into the uterus. One cycle of in vitro fertilization ...Read more
