Ghost- Beta Doubling Time

Post by BlissfulCS » Sat May 28, 2011 4:03 pm

Ghost:

My Beta on the 19th was 208 (14dpo). On the 23rd it went to 719. Doubling time 53 hours. I had a FET. My RE says they like to see the rate double every two days but that they are happy with my numbers.

However I've noticed most of the other women on the board are doubling even faster than 48 hours. Should I be concerned? Should I get another Beta? I am scheduled or an u/s on June 3rd.

Thanks as always for your help!

It's close enough. The "doubling rule" is not a real rule, just very approximate (one report says a better factor to use is x1.6, not x2). They give you three digits, giving the impression of much more precision than they really have.

I've seen lots of them much like yours make it to live birth. Happens all the time.
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.

Wonderful. Here's to hoping you see one more make it to live birth. :-) Thanks Ghost!
