The nurse said my beta was 7 out of 50 she said.

Bad results. The doctor called and said he thinks it's a
Biochemical pregnancy. But still wants me on my medication, which makes no sense to me.
Why torture a person if it didn't work..

That's odd...they had me stop my medicine the day of my first beta. Maybe your second number was only slightly off? Hang in there and I'm here for you. I went through this my first cycle and it was super frustrating. It took forever for my hcg levels to return to zero. Please reach out with any questions, no question is stupid. I hope your outcome will be different than mine.

Yep, that is why, your number is still almost doubling. My first one was 3 then 25 then 36 then 50 then 58 and then it finally started to come down. I'm glad they are still hopeful. This means you could just have low hcg numbers.

I don't think they are hoping if they already declared biochemical pregnancy.
How long did you have to wait until your period after they told you?

I bled after the 25 beta but my numbers kept going up. My hcg went to zero after 4 weeks but I never bled again.

Had my hcg test again and it dropped to 7 so the doctor said it's an unsuccessful pregnancy.It's been almost 6 weeks and still no period.
I'm just wait now

Hang in there. You should bleed when your hcg gets to zero. It seems to be coming down nicely! Do you know when you will cycle next? I'm sorry this one didn't work out but it just means it wasn't the right time.

Thank you ladies soooooo much for your support and kindwords it helped me sooo much to get thru this last 3 weeks.
My period came yesterday so I don't need to worry as much.
Tomorrow I have an apt with the doctor to figure out ournext step.
I believe I would need to skip this cycle and wait for thenext one to do IVF again.
I’m not 100% sure how it works with a frozen cycle.
Does anyone know?

Nicole, just wanted to say I'm really sorry for the low HCG. The whole process just seems like a cruel joke most of the time. The FET will probably have to be starting with your next cycle. Let us know what your doc says.

If it was a fresh cycle they well make you take a cycle off. If it was frozen they can put you on 16 days of bc and you can start the meds for a fet right after that. I'm glad we were able to offer support. I know I was a mess when I dealt with the low hcg and had no one to turn to.

Went to the doctor yesterday. He said I will be taking off one cycle, therefore, I will start again in August.
He said it was bittersweet news but with 8 frozen ones I should be ok.
Hopefully he is right. fingers crossed.
Thanks ladies again for all your support.
I will keep everyone posted on my next cycle for sure.
