Question
Hello Doc:

We are in the process of starting a family. I frequetly missed my periods before wedding. I started my treatment post wedding ...and came to know last month that my AMH is 0.71 with other tests normal. I had a growing folicle and hence was put under study. I took and HCG on 13th and since the folicle didnot rupture, I took another shot on 15th. The study on 17th showed no folicle. I was in touch with my husband on all the say, sat, sunday and monday. I studied that since the hcg level would be high as it is due to the injections, I should go for a blood test to get the accurate results. wanted to check with you, when can I go for the blood test and what is the name of this test.

Hello,
Your AMH LEVELS are on the lower side of normal.So there may be less chances of the follicle to grow adeqately enough to rupture.
If you have been taking hormone injections then any blood tests you would do now would be false positive/negative.If you took Inh HCG on day 13,15 then the follicle should have ruptured by now.But if it hasnt ruptured by now,the chances of it happening are low.Im not sure which blood test you want to do,but a beta hcg blood test need not be done now,as the results would be false.If your follicle hasnt ruptured by now,then chances are that this cycles is useless.

Hello Doc:

I think I was not clear in the earlier email. The follicle has ruptured per the ultrasound on the 17th. We had intercourse on 15th, the day i took the injection, 16th and 17th. I want to check for pregnancy. I read that the urine test will not give accurate results as the hcg level would be high due to the injections I took. I want to know if I can go for the beta blood test to confirm the pregnancy.

Please confirm.

thanks

Ok,i understand what you mean now.Well, the beta HCG blood test wont be accurate so soon after ovulation.It should be done only after 2 weeks after ovulation,and even better after missed period.Basically what i mean to say,is that, doing that test now,wont give you accurate results.Wait at least 2 weeks after ovulation.

Hello- I have tried the hcg diet last year with great success- I only gained back 4 lbs over a year, but only did one round. I went to a diet doctor and he prescribed me phendimetrazine. I have taken it for 7 weeks with 14 lbs lost. I feel like I lost weight so quickly on hcg, had very few side effects and was wondering if I could use the Hcg with the low calorie diet and add just one phendametrizine for hunger control? I am 45 years old, female in very good health. I am also post gastric bypass patient (3 years out). I started at 320lbs and am now at 157. I am 5'4" tall- my diet dr says I need to weigh 115! That sounds extreme to me--but in any event I would still like to lose 25 more lbs. Can the two be taken safely together? It is sublingual-not injections
