Brief Answer:
Tomorrow

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns.

You can do serum beta hCG blood test after two weeks of embryo transfer. As the ET date was 19th July, you can do serum beta hCG blood test today or tomorrow.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Thanks doc. I'm testing tomo. In the meanwhile, I have swelling (hard spots) which are painful to touch from the Oil based Progesterone injections (100 mg) daily.

This is despite the ice and hot water fomentation. Can I apply Thrombophob to the inflamed areas. Or is there any other remedy. Please advice doc.

Thanks n rgds

Stop oil based injections and use only water based injections in future eg. Inj. Aquagest 25 mg.

Continue thrombophobe ointment as of now.
