Hi, this is my first post and not sure if this allowed or not? But here goes, so as many of us I have had a long and unsuccessful journey, 8 ivf cycles, which includes 3 fresh and the rest fet. Just embarked on what is possibly our last try, disaster from the start, 11 eggs, 6 fertilised only 1 made it to day 5, resulted in a positive test on Monday but hcg levels very low only 53.36. Clinic were ok with this and didn’t really want to retest, but I wanted to as with my previous pregnancy which sadly ended at 20+3 my hcg level was circa 200, so comparing is making me anxious. I retested today and whilst the level is rising, it is not where it should be, today 48 hours later it’s only risen to 75.
I have to now wait until the early viability scan on the 9th October, but this is ages away . I a man getting conflicting info depending on which nurse I speak with, first one told me it’s lower than ‘normal’ they’d would expect a reading of 60 or abaove, nurse today said 53.36 is a great result and very positive, the. Other nurse who took blood called with results today and said I’m still pregnant and it’s positive it hasn’t risen but it’s not what they would expect to see......
Anyone else had issues with low hcg levels and slow to rise?
Thank you reading, listening and hopefully replying!
