Infertility

IUI

04/07/2009

Question:

This month I did 100mg of clomid then we did the Novarel trigger shot,followed by IUI. I had the IUI done on March 16th, went to have HCG blood test done on March 27th, the numer was only 1, does that mean I`m not pregnant or was it too early to test?

Answer:

An hCG level of 1 IU/L measured 11 days after ovulation most likely means you are not pregnant. However, in unusual cases this level could be seen very early in pregnancy. If you did not have a menstrual period, the test should have been repeated one week after the original one.
