  • Positive Pregnancy Test: A dependable indicator of pregnancy is a pregnancy test, which measures the levels of hCG hormone detectable at this time.
  • Missed Period: On the other hand, for an irregular menstrual cycle, missing a period might also be the strongest sign of pregnancy.
  • Fatigue: Fatigue is common in early pregnancy due to hormonal changes, leading to increased excitement.
  • Breast Tenderness: You have to realise that your breasts can have some discomfort including tenderness, sensitivity or even heaviness.
  • Nausea or Morning Sickness: You might suddenly develop a queasy feeling or even vomit, which won’t just be a morning sickness, but can happen any time of the day.
  • Increased Urination: Chances are you will have to visit the bathroom far more frequently.
  • Cramping: Many young girls experience pain similar to menstrual cramps but with no period.
  • Difference in taste buds: Some of the foods you liked before may not be to your liking now, or perhaps you now strongly crave foods that you would never think of before. The smells also appear either stronger or different.

It’s essential to know that these symptoms can also be caused by other factors and not necessarily mean pregnancy. The best way to confirm pregnancy is through a blood test at your doctor’s office, as it’s more accurate than home pregnancy tests.

HCG levels 16 days after embryo transfer

16 days after your embryo transfer, doctors can check a special hormone in your blood called hCG to see if you’re pregnant. Here’s what you need to know: 

  • hCG Hormone: This is why pregnancy tests work the way that they do. If it is there this means the embryo has implanted inside your womb and started to grow.
  • Levels: People differ, however if you are pregnant by now, the level of this hormone should be quite pronounced to show up in a test. A greater number shows progress.
  • Doubling Time: If you are pregnant then the quantity of this hormone will be increasing by 2 to 3 days as well.
  • Checking Again: Doctors could conduct some tests from time to time in order to monitor the expected increase in this hormone level.

If the tests say your hCG level is going up, that’s usually a good sign that the pregnancy is doing well. Your doctor will tell you what comes next and when to do more checks or scans.
