Spotting after iui
Hi, my wife is 35 and we had our 3rd iui done on 18aug. At 13 days post iui on 31aug there was some spotting which we thought was her period. However there was no more bleeding after and we met the gyn on 1 sep. Turns out it's a positive and hormone levels were okay. My wife was instructed a complete bedrest until we meet next with the gyn on10th. A further test on 3 sep also had hormones in acceptable level.. We have a scan scheduled for 10 Sep. My question is this: is the spotting at 13 days okay to be implantation   And not the bad M. Also we feel my wifes age is against us and also my count which is low and the reason we did iui.

Chances are all is perfectly fine.  A positive is good news!

By the way, your wife is not old at 35, and IUI is one of the best treatments for low sperm count for men.

Congratulations!

We saw the doctor and did the ultrasound. Everything is normal and fine. Saw the embryo sac, today being the middle of the 6th week. We have the next scan on 21-Sep and the doctor says that we should be seeeing the heart beat then.
Thanks all for replying and the nice words. I shall keep this posted.

Today is the 17th day post transfer andI have been having brown spots since this morning and a mild bleeding last night. Im also concern about the baby.  Called my doctor and said it might have been implantation bleeding.  My check up will still be the day after tom. and its killing me to wait that long for my doctor.  He just said that i should take a rest till my check up day...  Im so glad to hear your wife is okay even with the spotting. Its a relief for me.  How is she now?

Hi, I am told that spotting is normal. my sister also had spotting during hers and she has a healthy 3 yr old now. So I think and I hope it s ok.
Please note that the doc advised complete bedrest ever since she told she had some spotting. so please take complete rest and dont walk around too much and lift weights etc.
