I did a 6day frozen embryo transfer on Oct 23. my first beta Oct 31,it was 17 .another beta test nov 2 and it was 51.on the 4th it was 95. is that low?

No: This level doubles every 2 to 3 days so you are still in the normal range. It would be more reassuring if it were slightly higher but it is premature to draw any conclusions about the success of the transfer. ...Read more

I had frozen embryo transfer on 1/28/2015 My 4th beta test showed 332 as HCG level. Is it good or bad?

I had frozen embryo transfer on 1/28/2015 My 4th beta test showed 332 as HCG level. Is it good or bad?

Beta HCG level: Sometimes with embryo transfer, the implantation into the uterine wall is delayed, so the generation of beta HCG may be as well. Any level above 10 is associated with pregnancy, but "332" is low, and should be checked again in five to seven days, since the rise should be rapid. If bleeding or one sided pain occurs, see your healthcare provider immediately. ...Read more

I have used tens before and after et according to the literature from china, and it seems to be increasing the pregnancy rate. If you are close to the ny area i suggest you schedule a consultation. ...Read more

When is the earliest that i can test for a home pregnancy test after a 3 days frozen embryo transfer?

When is the earliest that i can test for a home pregnancy test after a 3 days frozen embryo transfer?

Patience...: Patience is a virtue that all parents should seek. It is most valuable for raising children. A urine pregnancy test done correctly should give a reliable result on 2-3 weeks later (making it unlikely to be a false negative if it is negative). Hopefully, it will be a positive, but there should be no need to give it another thought until then. ...Read more

Could be: It takes an embryo about 2 weeks to make enough HCG for a positive pregnancy test. You may wish to repeat the test in 5-6 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more
