About hCG level after IVF

My wife had an hCG test on day 14 after implantation with two frozen embryos. The result was 23. On d16 the level was 7 so she stopped medication. Now she is on day 19 but has not bled. Is that a problem and is there a possibility that she is pregnant ??

Unfortunately, your wife's hCG levels indicate a non-viable pregnancy (biochemical pregnancy) If her periods were very regular (28-30 day cycle) she will start to bleed soon.  Most women will bleed within 7 days of stopping their medication.  If this does not happen let the nurse know and they can advise her on what to do.
