After ivf urine pregnancy test

You just had your embryo transfer but it will be another ten to twelve days until you go into the lab for your Beta (blood pregnancy test).  Now of course you can wait until then, but most surrogates I know DO NOT . It looks as if most surrogates start to test around Day Four or Five after their transfer.  Even though you know it’s pretty early, you still do it because you never know . In my second journey I decided to test at home before my Beta.  Even though I knew it was very early, I still figured that day was as good as any. One of the things that surrogates need to realize is that positive at-home tests can show up on different days for different people, not to mention different tests can detect results earlier than others.  My surro-wonder twins showed up on 4dp5dt . Speaking as a non-surrogate mother, I second the idea of not giving up hope entirely with negative HPTs or with a low beta – I had a negative hpt at 14 dpo (which I believe is equivalent to 9dpt5dt or 11dpt3dt for IVF), the day my period was due, but a positive beta level of 15 on the same day!
Most people would probably think the pregnancy was doomed for failure with that low of a beta (so low it wouldn’t register as positive on the home test), but I tried not to worry too much.
After having trouble getting pregnant, you’ve seen a fertility specialist, started IVF, and gotten through the first embryo transfer.
To see a Board-certified fertility specialist who will help you understand all of your test results, make an appointment at one of InVia Fertility’s four Chicagoland locations.


While all IVF patients understand with their heads that not every IVF cycle results in success, in their heart of hearts, every patient expects to get pregnant every time they do IVF. Most patients would love to have a test that will allow them to find out if they are pregnant immediately.
A pregnancy test measures the amount of beta hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) that is in your body. To see a Board-certified fertility specialist who is qualified to provide the right tests at the right time, and help you understand all of your test results, make an appointment at one of InVia Fertility’s four Chicagoland locations. After months or years of having trouble getting pregnant, the two weeks after the embryo transfer can seem like an eternity and can be very nerve-wracking. Bleeding can sometimes occur during pregnancy as well – and just because you have had bleeding or spotting does not mean you are not pregnant!
To understand why patients (and their doctors) still have to suffer through a two-week wait to find out the outcome of an IVF cycle, let’s look at the biological basis of pregnancy tests and how they work.
These tests cannot measure a level lower than 25, so they do not become accurate until a few days after embryo implantation.


Since implantation occurs 3 – 8 days after the embryo transfer (depending upon whether you have had a Day 3 transfer or a blastocyst transfer), this means that the hCG produced by your embryo will be first detectable in your bloodstream only after this time.
A negative result before then is meaningless, since there would not be a high enough level of hCG to detect even if you were pregnant. If you test too early, the test will always be positive, as this hCG will show up in the test and give rise to false hopes! It’s fine to do this, but please don’t assume that a negative results means that you are not pregnant.
