Putting patients at the center of the medical universe

I am an infertility specialist, but I prefer to think of myself as being a patient advocate. I believe patients should be at the center of the medical universe ( the "healthcare industry" ) and will write about what can be done - by patients and doctors - to achieve this.

    I am 32 year old female,I have been gone through IVF.My 5 eggs were retrieved all were fertilized but 3 embroyoes were transfered on 19th of March.But i have started my bleeding since yesterday and it turned from brown to red and is heavy also.In a very hurry and panic,i got my U/s checked and the doc told me she can see 1 sac but the Hcg-beta was less than 2.please help me out.

  2. Dear Shazia,

    Your doctor is lying. A beta HCG of less than 2 confirms you are not pregnant .


    This means your IVF cycle has failed and your embryos did not implant.

    There is no way she can see a sac on an ultrasound scan - she is just taking advantage of your ignorance. Please don't get fooled !

    I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your site.
    It appears like some of the text in your posts are running off the screen.
    Can someone else please comment and let me know if
    this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my web browser because I've had this happen previously.
    Appreciate it
