thanks for your query.
An hcg level of 8.8 is anyway inconclusive, and is due to mostly the effect of pregnyl.
Also, masturbation would not negatively impact the pregnancy as such.
however, intense orgasms could lead to uterine cramps.
It is better if you avoid masturbating for the time being, until you know if you are definitely pregnant or not.
All the best to you with the ivf.
Take care.
