Hi

Just wanted to ask if anyone had any experience of hcg blood results . I tested today at 11 days post e/c , 8 days post e/t . Result was 3.5 . Clinic told me above 5 is pos , below 2 def neg , but 3.5 is very low & probably means a failed attempt at implantation . Very slight , but unlikely chance of late implantation . I've to continue on meds & retest on Mon . Feel I have to accept this as a neg , but feeling confused !!
Anyone any experience of this ?

Thanks Dollyzx xx :(

Dolly, I'm sorry your clinic has done a test at this point as it really leaves things up in the air. The hcg picked up could still be from your trigger inject prior to e/c; it could be a failed implant. but it could also be absolutely OK as until you are at least 12 days post e/t it's difficult to say for certain.
Monday will tell you more as you would expect the level to have risen if an ongoing preg. but will down to 1 if neg.
Will be thinking of you.

Hi Sarah

Thanks for your reply , wonder if you can offer me any further advice ?

I've retested today & my level has gone up from 3.5 on fri to 17 today . I'm told this is still really low ( they would expect a level of 60 ) , but in 3 days has gone up at the expected ratio . Could this be a late implantation or is it an indication of a non viable pregnancy ? Am I in fact now pregnant ?
Feeling totally confused , clinic want to take more bloods in a week .

Dear Dolly

I have been following the goldies thread and am sorry that things are not yet clear for you on your PG test. I am also an oldie myself, 41 but soon to be 42! I am currently on my 2nd IVF and due to test on the 31/3. I have not been posting at all recently but have been hovering around the board during this cycle.

I did wonder why you were testing so early initially as I had my egg collection on the 17 which is only 2 days after you but my clinic gave me a date of 31/3 for testing whereas I noted that you tested on the 26/3 which seemed to be much sooner than me?

In any event I have been surfing the net over the last couple of weeks when I have been at home (resting and going mad!) and found this web site which gives some info on early pregnancy HCG levels.

Look under the heading "Pregnancy"

Hope this is of some use - and I do hope that things work out for you in the future.

best wishes

Ellen

Dolly, you are definately pregnant though whether ongoing is the big question now. It sounds like late implantation as the level has risen well. I would expect a level of 100+ 2 weeks after ET for happiness to be felt.

Thanks for all your replys

I think it's just a case of wait & see now , though I do still feel in limbo & can't think past Mon blood test ! On the plus side we have got an implantation & as I've never managed a PG before it is a positive sign for the future .
Ellen- good luck on the 31st , I'm not sute why my clinic test so early .

Love Dollyzx xxxx

Gail - well hello to you too and thanks for your good wishes also. Haven't planned any trips as yet - was in New York in January, very cold but good shopping! Best of luck to you, whatever you are up to.

take care
