Beta question ghost or anyone

Post by Klm » Fri Aug 20, 2010 10:21 pm

My friend implanted two embryos on day 3 post retrieval. She had her first beta of 163 12 days past transfer. Two days later she more than doubled with a beta of 475. What are the chances of twins with those numbers? Also if two embryos are implanted and you only end up with a singleton what happens to the one that didn't implant? Do you essentially miscarry it and have bleeding?

I don't know the probabilities, but that could be a twin or a single. No way to tell until the ultrasound.

An embryos that does not implant would go unnoticed. No bleeding.
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.

Hi Kim -

its really hard to just go by HCG levels since they vary so much, the only true way is through your u/s
but if you want to take a peek - go to http://betabase.info and it will give you an idea, I took a peek for you and you fall right between the medians for a singleton or a twin - dont get too crazy over the numbers you really wont know for sure until you get that u/s - Congrats and good luck!
Oh and to figure your DPO (days past ovulation) you add how many day embie you transfered with how many days past transfer - xoxo
