Hovering HCG level after chemical pregnancy

Postby littlebear » Thu Dec 31, 2009 7:35 pm

Hi

Has anyone heard of or experienced a hovering hcg? my numbers started out low at 56, then increased to 156 and then dropped to 42 (chemical pregnancy). since the drop it has gone up and down - 42, 46,42, and now today 56. this is over a span of 3 weeks. anyone experience this or can offer insight? i've already had the sonogram to rule out ectopic so theres nothing inside. when will the # drop? i cant move onto the next FET til its 0 ....

It still could be an ectopic. There's some implanted trophectoderm/placenta tissue somewhere, making hCG, and it's abnormal.

Hi Little Bear
Can you please let me know what happened after you posted here about the hovering HCG levels? it's been 4 weeks mine are hovering the 30s, also having started low. The story is exactly the same. I also have unknown infertility.
Did you pass through some kind of treatment? I know it's been several years for you, but maybe you had a natural drop afterall?
They want to give me methotrexate, and I'm terrified. I'm 39, and I feel this will be my first and last IUI (with hormones).

Do you have any advice after all your experience?

Thanks...
