IVF HCG test low positive

Postby svevitab » Tue Apr 11, 2017 6:50 pm

Hi, I am new to the site. I just went through my first IVF cycle and today was the day we've been waiting for so long. My doctor called to give us our blood test results. He said my test was low positive HCG=2.3 and that he was not confident, but wants me to continue progesterone and meds for another 2 days to do another blood test. Does anyone have any positive outcomes with a test so low? I am so sad tonight... I am 39, have been trying to conceive for over 3 years naturally and finally discovered that when I had a c-section, my fellopian tube got blocked by scar tissue and that I have Low ovarian reserve. This cylce only had 4 eggs, only 2 fertilized and only one survived... so nothing to freeze, :(

Hi svev! Unfortunately, I personally do not know any success stories regarding a beta that low but great miracles have happened more than once to plenty of ivf women!!! To my knowlege a clinical pregnancy is determined as a beta over 5. Did you transfer both??

no there was only one that made it to day 5... and now I had my second test and it was down to zero... so very sad but will try again soon. i feel that even if we had only one egg that seemed to make it to transfer there is hope... thanks for your answer!
