hello
welcome to haelthcare magic.
you should wait for another 5 to 7 days atleast then get a blood test for pregnancy(serum beta hcg). also get a serum progesterone level done. if the progesterone is below a certain level you will need some supplementation of progesterone to support the pregnancy(provided you are pregnant)

Hi I have been treated for hypothryoid for 2 yrs and keep having up and down TSH levels. We have been thinking since I take alot of oral estrogen that it is binding with synthryoid in the liver, requiring me to take more. When I take more, then I go the other swing to hyperthyroid. I ve had to take antidpressants since I am always tired, depressed, anxiety from all this low thyroid stuff. We did try switching me to part estrogen patch part oral estrogen which did make the thyroid level stay more consistent. However, then I ended up not being balanced hormonally. I had a total hysterectomy age 28; have been on oral estrogen and progesterone since then. I have tried hormonal cremes and not found the right doses on them either. I have only been put on synthroid and endocrinologist feels any T4 /T3 drug combos would be worse for me due to having to take the T3 part more often, trying to get balanced, especially when I am hard to balance anyway, have history of anxiety, and am sensitive to medications.

Hi, My wife had just gone through IVF process and had the Embryo Transfer on the 25th May 2014 (16 days ago) Proluton Depot 250mg was given on the transfer day itself, and every 3 days after that. The last injection given was on the 6th June. Also given was PREGNYL 5000IU on the day of the transfer and 3 days interval twice(6th June was the last Pregnyl Injection). Today, we made a BLOOD HCG and the result shows negative. What went wrong? Do Pregnyl or Proluton effect the reading of HCG in blood?
