Hello doctor,

I conceived with the help of frozen embryo transfer, which was done the 26th of last month. My last menstrual period was on the seventh of last month. My beta hCG was 494 on seventh of this month, it was 886 on the ninth, and it was 2875 on the 12th. A few days back, I started mild spotting, so I consulted a doctor. He did an ultrasound and said everything is fine. The ultrasound picture had a small black hole in it. The doctor prescribed Ovidac and Michele injection. Yesterday, I decided to get a beta hCG checked, and it was 10636. Does Ovidac interfere with beta hCG? I took Ovidac 24 hours before the blood test. Please explain. Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Your beta hCG is increasing normally. There is no need to worry.
  • Ovidac (human chorionic gonadotropin) will not interfere with the natural increase of beta hCG. If there were chances of miscarriage, then even after taking Ovidac injections, beta hCG would have decreased and bleeding would have started.
  • Continue all medicines given by your doctor. If you are taking any blood thinner tablets or injections, please stop it.

Hi doctor,

Thank you for replying. At the moment, I do not have any bleeding. I was worried that the Ovidac injection might have given false beta hCG results. Is beta hCG value of 10636 healthy? Three frozen embryos were transferred.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Yes, 10636 is a good value according to the date of the embryo transfer. You might have a single embryo growing out of the three.
  • It is good that you are not bleeding. Do not worry about Ovidac injection.
