  • 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… CONTINUE READING
