They gave me a growth hormone on the 3rd attempt as my RE has seen great things w egg quality issues w this. It fixed the problem I was having. I am 29 also healthy and produc...

Re: Ghost...beta levels.

Your first level is on the high side. It is possible you were pregnant with twins and then there was a slight drop because of the loss of one. I wish you the best of luck.

Re: Ghost-question

Sarah Yes that is the HGH that I used. I took it 4 days, the 2 days before the trigger, the day of the trigger and the day after the trigger. I took 30 units. There were no side effects. I completely understand being disappointed with the embryo quality, I felt the same exact way. In fact, I didn't ...

Re: Ghost-question

I took HGH for poor embryo quality. There was fragmentation and the cells were dividing into uneven sized cells. The cycle I used HGH on worked for me and resulted in my twins. It is quite expensive. I think it was about $680 or something like that, but totally worth the cost for my twins. My RE has...

There is hope for those with poor egg quality. I went through IVF for the purpose of PGD (Pre implantation genetic diagnosis) for a known genetic condition. I wasn't expecting to have an issues getting pregnant. Well, it took us 3 tries due to poor embryo quality, due to fragmentation and the cells ...

Karen If you are a day 5 transfer there is a good chance that you are in the PGD group. My clinic doesn't run programs like this to test some of the patients. However, you can choose to do PGD. I had to do PGD for a known genetic condition, and I was always a day 5 transfer bc of this. On Day 3 on c...

I wouldn't worry too much (I know it is easier said than done.)

I also had cramping 7-10 days after my ET and thought for sure I wasn't pregnant. My twins are now 8 1/2 months old and napping. :)

Best of luck.

Actually, it doesnt have to double in 48 hours. As long as it is like 66% then it is good. Your numbers seem great. They are strong and could possibly be twins. Although you can't tell until your ultrasound.

Your numbers are strong and could possibly even be multiples.

Just wanted to let you know that when I was pregnant with my twins I had basically no symptoms at all. Good luck :)

From a physical standpoint you wouldn't feel pregnant yet, but from a PMA attitude it is a good thing.

Just wanted to tell you that the cycle that worked for my they also did HGH. It worked and my twins are now 6.5 months old.

Good luck

The two week supply that comes in the standard ville is actually more than a two week supply. I took lupron during the bcp all the way up to retrieval. At 20 units a day this should last a little over a month of it is a standard ville. They may reduce the amount later. Keep them updated because on m...

HCG leaves the system at about 1,000cc a day. So if you had it on July 29, 15 days ago, it should be out of the system by now.
