IVF is a blessing for infertile couples. Almost everyone wishes for a child to be able to inherit their parents’ happiness. So today in the article, we will try to know when you can do a pregnancy test after an IVF frozen embryo transfer.
Pregnancy Test After IVF Frozen Embryo Transfer?
Your doctor may advise you to take a pregnancy test 2 weeks after the frozen embryo transfer. Because a pregnancy test taken too soon after a frozen egg transfer can give false results.
An embryo transfer is the only way to detect beta-hCG, a pregnancy hormone. It is important to test for this hormone in pregnancy tests, as it can tell us whether we will become pregnant. For this reason, doctors recommend that a blood pregnancy test be done in order to confirm the pregnancy.
What is a Good Beta Hcg After an IVF Embryo Transfer?
When the embryo implants in your uterus on day 3, your doctor may recommend a beta-hCG test on day 14. If the embryo implants on day 5, then the beta-hCG test is conducted on day 12.
A beta-hCG level of more than 50 is generally considered a positive result. If the beta-hCG level is between 5 to 50 then it is not negative but there are high chances that it is a biochemical pregnancy. When an hCG test does not confirm pregnancy, an ultrasound scan may be needed instead.
Embryo transfer: What happens after day 5?
- On day 1, In the earliest stages of development, the blastocyst begins to hatch.
- On day 2,In the uterus, the blastocyst attaches itself to the lining of the uterus as it hatches.
- On day 3, A blastocyst starts implantation as it attaches deeper into the uterine lining.
- On day 4, implantation continues.
- On day 5, Implantation is complete. In the womb, cells that will become the placenta and foetus are beginning to develop.
- On day 6, As a pregnancy develops, the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) begins to enter the body.
- On day 7, foetal development continues, and hCG continues to be secreted.
- On day 8, foetal development continues, and hCG continues to be secreted.
- On day 9, maternal blood hCG levels are high enough to detect pregnancy.
Is It Better to Have a Fresh or Frozen Embryo Transfer?
Women with endometriosis or polycystic ovarian syndrome may experience better pregnancy results using frozen embryo transfers than using fresh embryos during in vitro fertilization.
Most of the women have the same question: “What should I do if my pregnancy test comes back negative seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, and twelve days after the embryo transfer?” First of all, you should know whether a 3- or 5-day-old embryo has been implanted in your uterus. If you have a 3-day implant, you should do a beta-hCG test on the 14th day, and if you have a 5-day implant, you should do a beta-hCG test on the 12th day.
