AbstractPurpose: Our purpose was to assess the predictive value for pregnancy outcome of an initial serum quantitative β-hCG measurement obtained 11 or 12 days after embryo transfer in an in vitro fertilization program. Methods: A prospective, descriptive study of 153 pregnancies achieved via in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer was performed. Initial β-hCG levels and subsequent pregnancy outcomes were compared. Results: The overall mean initial β-hCG level was 91±85.8 mIU/ml for normal… Expand
Early Maternal Serum β-human Chorionic Gonadotropin Measurements After ICSI in the Prediction of Long-term Pregnancy Outcomes: A Retrospective Cohort Analysis
TLDR
In ICSI pregnancies, a single early β-hCG may help to identify pregnancies that will reach full-term and delivery and demonstrate a high sensitivity for identifying patients with ectopic pregnancies and early miscarriage. Expand
Early serum beta-human chorionic gonadotropin in pregnancies after in vitro fertilization: contribution of treatment variables and prediction of long-term pregnancy outcome.
TLDR
Pregnancy viability can be predicted by measuring serum beta hCG as early as on day 13 after embryo transfer (ET), and older age, use of a short protocol, and shorter than anticipated crown-rump length are associated with early pregnancy loss. Expand
Value of Post-transfer Day-12 Beta Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Levels for Pregnancy Outcome Prediction of Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection Cycles
TLDR
Beta human chorionic gonadotropin levels on day 12 following embryo transfer provide an important parameter for the prediction of clinical pregnancy; however, other stimulation parameters are indicated in the Prediction of ongoing pregnancies. Expand
Predictive value of early serum β‐hCG levels after single blastocyst transfer
TLDR
The predictive value of a single β‐hCG measurement for pregnancy outcome after single blastocyst transfer increases between days 11 and 21 after OR, and may balance the accuracy of prediction and the necessity of an early reassuring test. Expand
Human chorionic gonadotropin cutoff value determined by receiver operating characteristic curve analysis is useful but not absolute for determining pregnancy outcomes
TLDR
HCG cutoff values determined by a ROC curve analysis are useful but not absolute for discriminating between viable and non-viable pregnancy outcomes on day 14 after embryo transfer, so it is important to continue routine monitoring of ART pregnancy outcomes. Expand
Prognostic value of beta-human chorionic gonadotropin is dependent on day of embryo transfer during in vitro fertilization.
TLDR
Initial β-hCG levels are dependent on the day of ET and are a reliable and highly predictive tool for OP outcomes, according to a multivariate analysis. Expand

TLDR
The likelihood of live birth was minimal with low serum β-hCG level 14 days after embryo transfer, and the rates of biochemical pregnancy and live birth were 99.5% and 92.4%, respectively. Expand
Maternal age and serum β-hCG concentrations at 14-16 days after embryo transfer are predictive factors for spontaneous abortion in IVF / ICSI cycles in Northeast China
Purpose: The objective of this current study was to find the most possible risk factors determining spontaneous abortion and predicting ongoing pregnancy outcomes in IVF/ICSI cycles to improveExpand
Embryo transfer day does not affect the initial maternal serum β-hCG levels: A retrospective cohort study.
TLDR
The study suggests that the initial maternal serum β-hCG values were not affected by the day of transfer of the embryos since assessing the β- hCG at equivalent points after transfer should not lead to a significant difference assuming the progress and development of the embryo development occurred as expected. Expand
Predictive value of maternal serum human chorionic gonadotropin levels in pregnancies achieved by in vitro fertilization with single cleavage and single blastocyst embryo transfers.
TLDR
Initial serum hCG values are higher after the transfer of a single fresh blastocyst embryo compared with after a singlefresh cleavage ET, even after adjusting for confounding variables, according to a single center retrospective cohort study. Expand

Can a single, early quantitative human chorionic gonadotropin measurement in an in vitro fertilization-gamete intrafallopian transfer program predict pregnancy outcome?
TLDR
A single serum hCG measurement obtained 14 to 16 days after embryo or gamete transfer not only is diagnostic but also has good predictive value for pregnancy outcome. Expand
The predictive value of discriminatory human chorionic gonadotropin levels in the diagnosis of implantation outcome in in vitro fertilization cycles.
TLDR
Discriminatory hCG cutoff values may be useful in predicting implantation outcome in IVF-ET cycles and may guide clinicians in identifying those pregnancies at risk for adverse outcomes and instituting more intensive surveillance in this population. Expand
Serum progesterone levels predict success of in vitro fertilization/embryo transfer in patients stimulated with leuprolide acetate and human menopausal gonadotropins.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that even modest increases in serum P4 levels (greater than 1.27 nmol/L) are associated with reduced pregnancy rates in IVF/ET cycles, and the mechanism may not exclusively involve poor oocyte quality. Expand
The role of early post-implantation beta-HCG levels in the outcome of pregnancies following in-vitro fertilization.
TLDR
The results indicate that the outcome of pregnancy following IVF-ER could be predicted with a high degree of probability by monitoring daily beta-HCG levels within the first 2 weeks following OR. Expand
Predicting pregnancy outcome after in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer using estradiol, progesterone, and human chorionic gonadotropin beta-subunit.
Two hundred twenty consecutive in vitro fertilization (IVF) conception cycles were studied prospectively in order to examine the predictive value of serum human chorionic gonadotropin beta-subunitExpand
Beta-human chorionic gonadotropin as a monitor of pregnancy outcome in in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer patients.
TLDR
Serum human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) was studied to test its predictability of pregnancy outcome in in vitro fertilization (IVF) patients and showed that spontaneous abortion may be due to late implantation. Expand
Serum progesterone and estradiol concentrations in the early diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy after in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer.
TLDR
Serum P and E2 cannot differentiate EPs from intrauterine pregnancies nor viable from nonviable pregnancies resulting from IVF, and no clinically useful threshold value for EP is indicated. Expand
Risk factors for ectopic pregnancy in 556 pregnancies after in vitro fertilization: implications for preventive management.
TLDR
Ectopic pregnancy after IVF appears related to pre-existing tubal pathology, however, routine prophylactic salpingectomy to prevent the risk of EP does not appear justified. Expand
Sonographic appearance of the endometrium: the predictive value for the outcome of in-vitro fertilization in stimulated cycles.
TLDR
The predictive value for pregnancy of the endometrial thickness and pattern assessed by vaginal sonography on the day of human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) injection and the day in 74 stimulated cycles for in-vitro fertilization (IVF) which were analysed prospectively is evaluated. Expand
Very early pregnancy wastage in in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET)
TLDR
The occurrence and incidence of early pregnancy wastage in an in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) program have been studied and it is possible that biochemical pregnancy does not represent an index for infertility but rather an intact stage of reproduction leading toward implantation.
