last time as I had a low beta and the nurses can't really explain it. I also find it hard that you have to wait til after 5pm to get a result from going in at 8am. But, as you can see from the posts more often than not the nurses do make these calls. The thing I'd be most concerned about is not getting to see yr RE for 2 months for follow-up. That really isn't good.

I am so sorry you got a negative result. It is very disappointing, and feeling you are having insensitive medical care I imagine makes it harder.

Good luck with the next steps, and maybe time to look for another RE. I'm on my 2nd IVF cycle.

All the best,


: I was APPALLED earlier today that my RE had a nurse call me with the news of my negative beta, and he didn't even follow-up with a phone call to discuss the situation! And, it turns out he doesn't have follow up appointments for "failed cyles" for two damn months!!!

: My questions are:

: 1) Shouldn't I expect to hear directly from my RE after a failed cycle?

: 2) Isn't two months a bit long to wait for a follow-up appointment?

: I'm upset enough that the beta was negative. My RE's insensitivity just compounds my pain and anger. OK, gotta go have a good cry now....
