chemical pregnancy ? for ghost

Post by momwant2b » Wed Nov 04, 2009 1:36 am

1st beta was 43, 2nd beta was 48, 3rd beta was 63. RE told me to stop all meds that this was a chemical. Stopped meds almost 5 days ago. Having 4th beta on Thursday to make sure number is dropping. If beta's are supposed to double every 2 to 3 days, how fast do they drop? I'm sure everyone is different but a ball park figure would be good.

It will drop by about half every day or two in the absence of hCG production. Sometimes it's produced a little while after the meds are stopped.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.
