Posted on Sat, 4 Nov 2017
Question: Please ignore my previous questions and refer below please

Sir, my wife has undergone ICSI 3 Day embryo Transfer. 1 cell is compact grade and others are Grade B. She got pregnant successfully and Values were @ DPT 14 577 Hcg & 23 Progesterone level and @ DPT 16 Hcg 1577 & 23 Progesterone level. Also she had undergone TVS and spotted SAC at 5 weeks. Then after two days she started to experience light bleeding for one day and stopped afterwards. Again as per Doctor advise, we have done Beta HCG @ Day 20 and It came 3200 . The doctor said that since three embryos have transferred, there might be bleeding and changes in BHCG and they told that finger crossed and Hope for the best at Final scan scheduled on DPT 25. Please let me know Do we have hope for Viable pregnancy?

Brief Answer:
yes.There is hope since no bleeding

Detailed Answer:
Hi
GREETINGS
I can understand your concern.
Since 3 embryos were transfered and a sac is seen we have to wait for a week for rescan .
Hcg is raising and no bleeding.Hence I suggest you to patiently wait for tv scan. That can predict fetal pole if viable pregnancy.
Scan will be better than serial hcg.
Hope my answer helps you.

Thanks for your valuable reply. But due to bleeding HCG value 3000 was lowered from high value or not doubling?. But as per latest scan test, still, the doctor can see thickened endometrium.

Hcg

Hi
I agree with you that hcg doubling is not adequate ..However an ultrasound scan will tell us more details.so let us wait for that.
Sac was seen earlier.
