Ghost or anyone? Do FET cycles have lower beta numbers?

Post by tryn4#2 » Fri Jun 25, 2010 1:20 pm

This was a FET cycle for me. The embryos were frozen on Day 6. My transfer was around 4 pm last Friday. I guess today would be 7dp6dt. I go July 2 for my beta test.

Well I have POAS the past couple of mornings and it is a BFN :cry: :cry: . I keep telling myself maybe it is still too early. .. so is there still hope. It seems like I remembering reading on one of these boards that FET cycles usually have lower beta numbers? Is that that case "sometimes"?

It seems to be the case sometimes.

You are testing early. At this point, a positive is a positive but a negative just means try again in a few days.
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.

I agree with Ghost and think its too early....i too tested at like 7dpt and had a BFN and then waited a couple of days and got my BFP (a faint one but still).....wait a little bit and try again! Good luck to you!

Kamaile,

Did you have a 3 or 5 day transfer?

ohhh but one more thing, mine wasnt an FET, it was a fresh cycle. not sure if FET have lower betas but i know of alot of people on here that done fresh cycles and still never seen their bfp's until like 10 or 11 dpt. and even then, ive heard of others that had bfn when the poas but then are positive when they go for their betas.
