Dr. Doctor.
Have you ever had a paitent that had an HCG that did not double but still had a viable pregnacy? I had a day 3 embryo transfer and my HCG has been increasing by 86% consitenly every 48 hours. It's been tested 5 times. Thank you

In a spontaneous pregnancy, if the hCG does not double in 48 hours, there is a sifnificant probability that the pregnancy is not good, and will be lost. With the technologies we use, there is a greater chance of more than 1 embryo implanting. If 1 is not good, the hCG may not double as it should, initially. If the second is a good embryo, the levels will begin to double, even if the other drops out.
Good luck.
