bleeding after embryo transfer
Hello. I had my embryo transfer 9 days ago and I just started bleeding like I'm having my period. I have 5 day day to go before my blood test and I just feel really sad and worried.
Anyone out had the same experience?
This is my 1st Ivf, but I have 6 AI. I'm 40 years old.

Hi everyone. I'm 36 and had my first IVF transfer, 3 embyos, on 12-3-2011. On 12-5 I was in a major car accident. Yesterday I spent all day with what seemed like menstrual cramps. Now I'm 11 days post transfer and started bleeding some bright red, then turning brown when I wipe. I, like most of u broke down crying and called my dr. I'm supposed to do a serum hcg in 3 days but they're moving the date up to tomorrow. I don't want to lose hope but can't help to think the worst. I wish everyone the best and pray my results are positive

Correction to my previous post. I wasn't 11 days post transfer. I was 8 days post transfer. I took an ept today. I got a BFN :-( I never did the blood test the other day. The clinic felt it was too early. Tomorrow is my blood test. I should know my results by Thursday.

Hi,  I am 43 years old and started my first IVF last week.  8 eggs, 2 fertilized, 1 made it to Blastocyst on the 5th day.  So I had one egg implanted on 12/14.  No bleeding at all afterward.  Yesterday 12/19 I had some indication of blood when I wiped (TMI).   rested all day into today.  Still some slight blood,  a little better.  Doctor said it was normal but to get off my feet. I've also been drinking water like a mad man. :)  I'm suppose to have my test on 12/23 in the morning.  I will definently follow up and let everyone know how it went.  It's my first IVF and I'm 43 so we'll see.  I'm anticipating having to go a few rounds (that way I take some unneeded stress off myself).

Also, one of my friends (40) did IUI twice, IVF twice, then IUI twice (in that order).  She got pregnant the last IUI and now has a beautiful baby girl. :) .

Hi I'm 34 and just had my first ivf cycle. I had the transfer done on 12/20 and I am going for my blood test on 12/29. When I woke up this morning I saw a little brownish/pink when I wiped. (TMI). I called my doc office and they said that it is normal. However, I am still really nervous. I have been reading all your stories all morning and it is nice to know I am not alone. Just really scared. My husband and I want a baby in the worst way. I really hope we will get a BFP. I hope all of you post your results. I know I will. Good luck to all of you. Glad to know we aren't alone.

Hey, I'm with you on this. I have my test on Friday and I'm so nervous. I have had every system possible which makes this a crazy process. My stomach feels like it is pulling every time I get up, I'm bloated, tired,  and tender breast.  tonight brown /red when I wipe, which really freaked me out. I'm praying for everyone who is attempting because this is a mental beat down.

Well I went for my blood work on december 29 and it came back positive. My hcg level was 99.5 which is very good and so long as it keeps doubling, everything will be great. However, I am still seeing some pink, very light though. So, when i spoke to my doc about it, he said that it is from the endometrin pills. They irritate the cervix, so that is where the little blood is coming from. So not to worry, it isn't coming from your uterus.  My husband and I are so happy. But like you all we have been on a very long journey and that journey has just begun. So stay calm and good luck. And hopefully you all will be blessed like we are.

Hi I'm 37 and just had my first ivf cycle after a failed IUI last year. I had the transfer done on 01/23. On 12 days post ET, I did a home test with BFN (oh noooo:(
I also started a very light brown spotting until this morning day 13 post ET (02/06). I dont know what to do but this morning I did a blood test and will have a result within 5 hours.
Will keep you updated about the result today. I wish all the best luck to all of us!

HI I am 42 and this is my first IVF attempt.  I had 22 Eggs collected of which 19 were fertilised.  I have had ICSI with 2 x embreyos implanted and I have 6 left to freeze.

I am now at day 10 of my embreyo transfer with 3 days to go until my blood test.  I woke up today and had a little spotting, then I started to get some cramping and then this afternoon I have been having red blood flow it really feels like my period :(  Still trying to be hopful and will be able to ring my clinic tommorrow to get advice (as today is Sunday).  Am still trying to stay posative and I must say it is really helpful to see there are so many others going through this process with the same hopes/fears and feelings.

Hi, I am 34 and this is our first attempt at ivf, we have been trying for five years to have a baby.

We had 9 eggs collected, 3 eggs fertilised and 2 embryos transferred (a grade one and a grade two) on 2nd February. None frozen.

I had cramping on days two and three and then nothing until day ten when I had a little spotting in the morning and some slight brown discharge, today is day eleven and again I had some spotting and what looked like lining, but only when i wipe myself. I have also had cramping all day and brown discharge.  Generally I feel as though my period is coming.

I have been resting for the past two days, but feel really upset and even thinking about not taking the pregnancy test on wednesday as don't think, I could cope at the moment with a negative result.

Is there anyone else who is experiencing these symptons or had these symptons? Just don't know what to do!

I know it is emotionally draining and hurtful. It feels like other than the beautiful ladies on these blogs NO ONE in your close inner circle understands what you are going through. I went through a depression and have taken a lot of anger out on my husband, Sometimes he does not understand because he is not the one going through all the shots and physical pain. I use to feel less of a woman because I could not get pregnant naturally. I have a son who will be 18, but that was from me being a teenager. My sisters are so fertile and have lots of children not me, my husband does not have any,yet, I am trying to stay positive. I am asking God for a miracle for u and your hubby. In the bible I Samuel 1:9 Hanna was hurting because she could not have a child. She was in so much pain in her heart, just like WE are and she stayed before God and she finally got pregnant with Samuel which means ( A gift from God). Lets stay before God and speak this pregnancy into existence. Gods promises are Yea and Amen. You and your husband go before God together in prayer on your knees because it is a sign of being humble and humility. You are going to be a mother I can feel in the atmosphere. I have never commented on any other posting, but I felt your pain truly in the spirit. May God bless you with 2 bundles of JOY:}

Hi, Cookie78, could you kindly confirm if you IVF worked and if you had one or twins. The happened to me. 3 embryos transferred, heavy bleeding, negative pregnancy test, but one month after I started having some little bright orange discharge, no period, and read in internet many pregnant women had the same.
Hope all went well with you!

Hi!  Just wanted to let all know that when I got pregnant with my twins through FET I had bleeding on day 6 after transfer and everything was good it was just implantation bleeding!  I thought I had started my period also but the bleeding stopped after a day or two.  Stay positive until your blood test!

Hi, I'm an expatriate living in the Middle East and I've had one failed IUI, 2 failed ICSI, 3 one was a positive but then had an early miscarriage. I recently had my 4th ICSI with my first test being on this Friday, however I had brown spotting yesterday and today slight bleeding (bright red).

I don't know what to make of all this, but I'm feeling very helpless at this moment in time. I don't know whether I should do a HPT or just wait for the test on Friday.

Hi,
I am having a little bleeding today - 8 days post 5dt of one good quality blastocyst. I just did a HPT, even though I know the earliest I could get a reading is 2 days from now. Unsurprisingly, it was negative.
I'm just going to have to wait and see.
I'm sending you baby dust!
Please post again to let us know how you are now. x

Is it heavy, are bleeding or spotting? I bled as well on the 8 day after 5 day embryo transfer. And unfortunately it was a failed ivf.

But they are people who bleed and still get positive result.
Fingers crossed for you. Mine was last month oct. am going for my second ivf. All the best dear.

I am sooo sorry to hear that.  Are you soaking a pad?  I bled for the first 4 months of my pregnancy.  It's wasn't a whole lot of blood but enough to make me cry constantly and for multiple trips to the emergency room.  However, my twin girls came out fine.  What did the doctor say?

I will keep you in my prayers.
