I think the re wanted me to have hcg boosters b/c we xferred 3 frosties, and only one looked very good. One was slow, and one was all over the place.
I'd heard of hcg boosters for iffy ivf pts many years ago so I wasn't totally surprised. I think the idea is that the hcg booster encourages the emby to keep going, and maybe encourages the other natural pg hormones to ramp up.
The beta was 11 days post-3-day transfer. Next beta tomorrow.
I did have my annual gyn appt. today, and the urine pg test was +, so that's a good sign, b/c it was all me, no boosters.
My memory is really bad, but I think that a long time ago there was a study that found that hcg boosters helped, but I think it must have been pretty marginal, b/c for my cycle in 2001, I know we pretty much threw everything at it. We ruled out things like embryo glue and other extras that just weren't having enough of an effect. It looks like I didn't save the abstract, though.
