Planning A Pregnancy By IVF?
Hello doctor, I and Melda want to ask about the IVF process that I am currently undergoing. The first day of my last menstruation was on June 6, 19, after the injection of drugs, on June 18, 19, the OPU and June 21, 19, were performed on 2 embryos. After this ET, I was asked to check BHCG on h + 3 ET, which is on June 24, 19 where 6.4 results were obtained. The doctor said there were signs of attachment in the uterus, after that the injection was done to strengthen the uterus while I continued to use cygest from the rectum (from ET since I have been using cygest. Then I was asked for another BHCG test on 28 Jun 19 (H + 7 ET). free fall to the number 1.2. I was asked to keep bed rest and continue to use cygest while later I repeat the BHCG test on 2 July 19, with the hope of a change. My question, from the medical side, is it possible that this number will rise again? I was very sad and began to get discouraged, please explain yes
Hello. Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
HCG or chorionic gonadotropin is a natural hormone that is formed by the body during pregnancy has a function to maintain eggs that have been fertilized by sperm and then stick to the uterine wall. Generally produced by cells formed in the placenta. During pregnancy, the production of the HCG hormone jumps sharply and doubles every two or three days. This generally occurs 6 days after fertilization and over time the HCG levels fall slowly again. The simplest examination is a testpack that measures pregnancy hormone content (HCG), an increase will occur and in general the levels that can be detected by the testpack are about one week since the last day of menstrual delay.
Pregnancy checks can be done by other ways such as ultrasound and physical examination by a doctor. In addition to pregnancy signs can also be considered as
Spots or blood spots where it is a patch of zygote attachment to the uterine wall that occurs during the first 2-3 days of pregnancy
Changes in breast shape due to the production of the hormone estrogen and progesterone are higher
Mild abdominal cramps that show the development of the uterus during pregnancy
Other symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, lack of appetite, and frequent urination.
