Her laboratory values include: * Hemoglobin: 8 g/dL (Normal 12.0- 15.5 g/dL) * Hematocrit: 32% (Normal 34.9- 44.5 %) * Erythrocyte Count: 3.1x10/mm (Normal 4.2-5.4) * Reticulocyte Count: 1.5% (Normal 0.5- 1.5%) * Microcytic & Hypochromic cells According to her symptoms, history, and laboratory results, it would be safe to assume that Ms. A is suffering from iron deficiency anemia.

Thirty-six hours before retrieval day a shot of hCG, human chorionic gonadotropin, is administered to prepare the eggs for release, so that they will be ready for
Health coverage does not cover the cost of Methotrexate. The research- A research was performed on 120 women treated with methotrexate therapy for unruptured tubal ectopic pregnancy. Sixty-two women received a single dose and 58 received a multiple dose methotrexate regimen. In the single dose group, treatment was considered successful in 50 women (80.6%), whereas in the multiple dose group, 52 women (89.7%) responded to treatment (p = 0.21; OR 0.90, 95%CI 0.77-1.05). The average number of days required for human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) levels to fall below 5 mU/mL was longer in the single dose (22.3 +/- 7.6) compared with the multiple dose group (18.3 +/- 10.7) (p = 0.03).
