Dropping HCG Question — The Bump

Dropping HCG Question

This month was a chemical. My HCG was 57 on Wed. and 25 today. Im going to do my first IVF hopefully next month. My nurse said if my HCG is 0 on Mon. then I can start BCP, if its not she said I have to wait for the next AF. Im sooo impatient! Could it drop this fast? I remember it lingering for a while with my other CP's and MC's. If its close to 0 do you think they will let me start or does it HAVE to be 0? TIA!

Re: Dropping HCG Question

  • Yes, it's possible.  With one of my cp's, I went from 89 on Friday to 2 on Monday.  CP's usually drop quickly.  I'm sorry you're going through this.  Hang in there.

  • ginger, I have no idea. But I wanted to say, again, how sad I am about your c/p. I hope that you have a stellar IVF cycle. I'm rooting for you.

  • I am so sorry for your loss! Yes, your HCG can drop to zero by Monday - actually if its under 5, its considered negative. 

    After my ectopic, my HCG went to 4 after less than 3 weeks and it was well over 4,000 when we found out. 

    Good luck and I hope you can start cycling again soon! 

  • I think it could. My 1st chemical was an 80 on the 1st day,2 days later it was 42  and 4 days after that it was 0. (It could have been a 0 before that but I was out of town.) I think it does have to be 0 before they will do anything. Hopefully, it will drop and you will be able to get started right away!

  • It's definitely possibly.  With my c/ps, my hcg always dropped ridiculously fast.  I'm sorry you have to go through this.
