Beta HCG is the word for A to Z challenge,Beta hcg is never the beginning in the infertility journey nor the ending its somewhere in between, all B’s here, but it is one of the important tests to know if your pregnant, also to know how the pregnancy is progressing, when the number are doubling or their is increase in the hcg level in the blood after every 48 to 72 hours . Beta hcg is a blood test/work after the dreaded two week wait (tww) to know if your pregnant or not. TWW is usually after your natural timed cycle,clomid cycle , IUI , IVF , FET cycle and much more difficult cycles, where you little embryo is formed and you will know if its growing and stuck to the uterus, after the tww that is approximately 14 to 15 days depending after clomid, natural, IUI cycles and in IVF cycle depending on the day of the embryo like day 3 embryo and day 5 embryo transfer.
I know this is all complicated but this just the beginning not ending after positive pregnancy test. The hcg level in your blood should be good if not ok, then the numbers should double, after a week the embryo should grow, later after another week heartbeat should be detected and its its never ending until we hold the baby, these infertility treatments are never ending and their is no success guaranteed after all the physical, mental and financial drain.
PS:I am not a doctor, these are just my findings and experiences which I have know because of this infertility journey, I am half doctor myself because we go though so much,sometimes I feel I know my diagnosis better than my RE(Reproductive Endocrinologist), also for B this is the best word I knew for the #AtoZchallenge, hope people have understood my post, if at all anyone has read.
