These were drawn 8 days after ovulation.

FSH 2
prog 68 pmols
estradiol 358 pmols
beta 3

The receptionist told me that beta of 3 means not pregnant. But isn't it too early to tell?

Your blood levels remind me very much of the cycle I had back in January (with the beta level of 5?). Your p4 and e2 levels look FANTASTIC (are you on p4 and e2 support?). If it takes several days for sperm to meet egg and travel down the fallopian tube (did you do TI this month?), wouldn't a beta level be expected to be where yours is, i.e., just starting to go up? Based on this, I don't agree with what the nurse told you, but hopefully others with a better understanding of numbers than me will chime in. Crossing my fingers for you.

The e2 and p4 look good, and it's too early to tell about the beta. Could be from trigger, or just early indication of pregnancy.

Thanks, ladies.

There is something that always causes confusion: the units of measurement for bloodword in Canada are not the same as those used in the US.

I think based on an internet search that my levels converted are as follows:

estradiol 98
progesterone 21

the others are in the same units.

So these results don't look quite so spectacular. I'm supplementing both estrogen (estrace) and progesterone (suppositories).

I POAS today and it was negative. However, I had a bit of suspected implantation bleeding yesterday. So I think it could go either way at this point.

I would have thought that any beta level at this point, no matter how low, should give you cause to have some hope (did you trigger however?) so I will keeping my fingers crossed that sthg good is going on.

there is no other explanation for any hCG to be in your system apart from an embie burrowing in. My clinic never did betas at this point but I always wished they had...(I suspected many chem pgs).
keep us posted.

and that is the most sensitive ones, others need to see 50. So HPT is way too early at this point. But your numbers look very promising, please let us know in a few days! Rooting for you!
