Hcg fluctuation at 6 weeks

I did ivf with 4 embryos and got pisitive test then bleedin with clots next week and hcg dropped. At 6 weeks hcg has gone up and us showed nothing. My hcg at 6 weeks is 500 and at 5 weeks was 90.
Do you have the same story? I am afraid it is ectopic.

Hi there.  I sure hope not. It's a mystery to me how ectopic happens after IVF but I guess the egg can migrate up a bit into the tube.  The good news is that it is rare with a rate of .5 to 3 % only.  Your HCG numbers seem low though which I'm so sorry about.  Ectopic is one reason for that as is miscarriage. What has your doctor said about the numbers?  Are you spotting at all?  Fingers crossed it all turns out fine!  hugs
