IVF With Progesterone At 6 5 Wks PLEASE RESPOND

AVA - April 8

I had my 3rd ivf transfer on 3/9 with a positive pregnancy result (2 prior attempts failed). All levels (hcg, progresterone) all good. On 2nd u/s, at 6.5 wks, no h/b or yolk could be seen only a sac (measured 4.5mm). Dr. said to stop progesterone and expect natural m/c in about two days otherwise schedule a D&C. Is it too soon or is m/c inevitable? I will stop the progesterone oil injections tonight and let nature take it's course. May be time for a second opinion or new dr. Anyone experience this? Any advice? Hard to find any open forums on IVF miscarriages..

Hi Ava, I am so sorry. Have been through IVF and was blessed with a child that way. My advice would be to stop the progesterone and understand that most women who have normal pregnancies would never even know to have progesterone and the other things that IVF women are given. I was about where you are when I was told the same thing this past November. It took a week to the day I stopped the hormones. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope that you are able to try again.

Ava - I had IVF too - I think 6.5 weeks is too soon to write off a pregnancy. I stopped taking progesterone at 4 weeks and am now 11 weeks pregnant so don't worry about stopping that but I wouldn't do a D&C until after a 8 week ultrasound minimum. Some people just develop late but you do need a heartbeat by 8 weeks to be viable. Good luck.
