Does my beta seem high?


Hi ladies, we are very fortunately pregnant after our first round of ivf. We had 2 really good 5 day old embryos transferred and got a lovely bfp at 6 days post embryo transfer (the equivalent of 11dpo). My clinic did my beta hcg on Thursday (17dpo) and the result was 1650. On all the charts Iíve looked at this seems really high. The clinic did comment that it was a very strong positive. Has anyone else has theirs at 17dpo to compare? Iím wondering if there is a possibility of both the embryos having stuck 🤞Iíve just turned 40 and the embryologist told me after the transfer that there was very little chance of either sticking?

I think itís within a normal range, my best friend who had twins had an hcg of 4000 at 14dpo, but levels vary so much thereís no way of telling until they scan you! I donít know what mine were early on but at 24dpo they were 44,000. Good luck and congratulations!!

If I work back assuming they doubled every 2 days then at 17dpo mine wouldíve been around the 1125 mark, but itís not an exact science!

Mine was 408 at 17dpo but I’m just having one - yours does sound high, but I’ve heard girls make you have higher numbers than boys, so that could be it too. Congrats!

As far as I gather online they vary a lot. I didn't have my numbers measured with my pregnancies but I know my levels with DD were higher than with both boys. My tests with her were the darkest I have seen in my pregnancies, darker than the control lines and a 3+ on a digi, whereas the boys gave me relatively faint lines and DS2 his lines took a while to darken up so I think sometimes girls can produce more hCG? Did for me anyway

My levels were high, but i only had one Embryo' transferred. It's not the levels so much, its the rate at which it doubles which determines multiples. When are you getting another test? I know some women who've had really high first BETA readings, but just had single bubs....it's all depended on how quickly it rises
