Cycle immediately after chemical pregnancy?(6 Posts)
So my hcg levels dropped from 849 down to 43 and I was told to stop taking meds. Found this out at 6 weeks but likely dropped at 5 weeks. So i started bleeding yesterday 3 days after I found out about the drop in hcg and had a follow up appointment at my clinic.
The doctor said I could start another collection and transfer cycle immediately if my hcg drops below 5 by tomorrow on 3rd day of my cycle. So simply injections tomorrow...
I'm confused...is it ok to start another cycle this soon?
I thought this bleed wasnt classes as a regular bleed?
Has anyone else cycled again this soon after miscarriage/ chemical pregnancy??
Hmm, sounds a little quick to be honest.
Most clinics wont touch you for 3 months (or 3 cycles) and thats with a failed cycle.
As much as i understand you want to get going again (believe me, i do... im currently just finishing my AF after a chemical pregnancy, my 4th loss) i think your nody alone needs to calm down from all the drugs and raging hormones for at least a month or 2...
But the other factor is, are you emotionally ready? As much as i want to try again, there is no way i could consider trying now... i need at least a couple of weeks to digest what ive been through, to pick out things i need to learn from and gain my strength again..
Sorry to hear of your miscarriage... chemical or not, they are all pretty shit.
Good luck x
Hi, so sorry to hear about the early miscarriage. I had what was initially thought to be a chemical pregnancy. At that time was told I could start FET with my next period (not including the bleed after the fresh cycle failed). That was the earliest they were willing to start to try let things go back to normal. As it turned out it was an ectopic and not CP (hcg kept doubling after a period like bleed and reached a peak of 3000ish before had treatment with methotrexate). So I ended up having to wait for 6 months instead!
Mine said I just had to have one normal period and then could cycle again x
Thank you everyone for your advice. I'm definately taking heed and considering if it's the best choice.
What makes it harder is also the fact that I will have to wait for 2 months due to the christmas and new year closure and I had just taken 2 months off due to family illness. Me being 41 doesn't help either.
I'm not sure it will actually drop enough by tomorrow anyway.
