My HCG was 24 and the second HCG (19 days after transfer) was 35/04.and third (22 days after transfer was 18/12) and my sonography show no ectopic pregnancy and embryo sac .My doc say to me result is negative.

Is there any chances to get positive result?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Yes semen analysis was abnormal and will need IVF or other assisted reproductive techniques to help you out. Consult your fertility consultant and let them help you in this regard.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
