    I was given the option of suppositories, pills or injections. Most ppl wouldnt choose injections but I wanted the most effective method and I was told that gets into your system fastest. I am now 29 wks and still on them. My levels stay up when on them but drop if i go off. Good luck to you! Hope to see a positive update.

    I just found out in the past week and a half that my level dropped from 28.8 to 20.5. I freaked out. If I drop below 20, my doctor will supplement with vaginal suppositories. I am 5.5 weeks.

    He said we should test again because levels do fluctuate. For my next level, I will try and go in the morning before eating to get the most accurate result. I heard levels vary throughout the day while HCG remains constant.

    Good Luck! :hugs:
