I had an IVF. The transfer was on 6/18/12...three days after retrieval. I've been taking shots of progesterone in oil. I've had three betas 6/29 (95); 7/2 (465) and 7/9 (5,096). Today (7/9) I also had an ultrasound but the doctor could not find anything. He suspects an ectopic. I'm about 5 1/2 weeks pregnant, I think. He wants me to come back in two days and repeat the vag. ultrasound and bloodwork.
I've been doing some reading and it seems that ectopic pregnancy is usually accompanied by cramps which might be mild or worse (which I dont' have); interment or heavy bleeding (which I don't have); dizziness (which I don't have), as well as a bunch of other symptoms which I also don't have.
My question is, could the progesterone in oil be sustaining my pregnancy which is why I'm not bleeding. Or with an ectopic pregnancy, will I bleed no matter what.
