Hi, I'm new to this site and I'm on my first ivf cycle. I had my embryo transfer on 17/10/12 and i've been taking the
progesterone. I'm on my 9th day now and wed evening i had spotting like brownish pink blood. then yesterday
(thusrday) morning still same then it turned to a heavy period. I spoke to my doctor and he said it should be a good sign that my period came it means that the embryo is starting implanting however he said my period came early
and its not due in 5 days. So he's not sure if it really works or not but to wait on my blood test this.coming monday.
I'm still bleeding a little bit right now but it's not heavy anymore. I'm now worried that it didn'T work coz actually had heavy period. Also i tried home preg test and it came up as neg i know its too early but I just hate this feeling of wondering if its all good or not.
is there anyone had similar experience and still got pregnant despite having heavy period just before their blood test? also i have no symptoms of pregnancy right now except for cramps probably period pain only. Hoping someone cannhelp or give anlittle bit of advice.
thank you much for the reply i feel better now. i had a 5 day transfer and my blood test is due this coming monday. my period had stopped this morning. my abdomen feels a bit funny that i get shooting pain but it goes away and abdomen not bloaded anymore. did you had heavy bleeding on 2ww? thank you for your support!
I had a small amount of bleeding 6 and 7 days past transfer which I thought may have implantation bleeding....but I had not 1 symptom. . I kept telling everyone that if I hadn't seen the RE put the embryos in, and have a sono pick of them....I would swear he hadn't put them in at all! I felt absolutely nothing!!! Even after my positive beta and first u/s showing 2 fetuses, I felt nothing.
Do you think you will another home pregnancy test? I never did I was always to chicken.
you only probably had spotting? they said that wasa good sign but i had full on period. it's my 11th day post transfer and had tried preg test again but it was negative again :( i guess i'll just have to wait 'till tomorrow for my beta. we still have 4 embryos frozen i guess we'll just have to try again if it doesn't work.
It was a little heavier then spotting, and it was pretty heavy for a day or so when it started at 5 weeks. I spotted/bled for weeks with my pregnancy. I would have to look back at my pregnancy tracker to see for sure, but I believe it was up to week 14 or so....it seemed like forever!!!
I am glad to hear you have 4 totcicles :). I will keep my fingers crossed for you!! Hang in there my friend!!!!
im so sorry to hear that ,
this is my 2nd IVF and its my 11th day post transfer and im having most likely "my period" im so depressed after all the pain and suffering i went through .. i wish i could lie to my self and have some little hope until my blood test due this wednesday , but unfortunatlly the blood i see makes me face this ugly reality :(
I got my last periods on the 29th of Jan. However when I went to see the Gynec few days later, she test she said that there is 1 good sized egg and that we can try IUI. So we did the IUI on the 05th of Feb 2013. But today i.e 17th feb 2013 ,since morning had severe stomach cramps and then the bleeding started. Looks like periods.I am still in my 2ww. What does this mean ? Should I go for my test on 19th Feb
Just wanted to say that I understand what you are all going through. Isn't it so upsetting to bleed (more than spotting) during the 2ww? It's like why can't we at least have hope until the blood test? Why do our hopes have to be shattered so early on :(
Sorry for being depressing lol, I'm on my 3rd IVF (2nd fresh cycle) and what DH and I have decided will probably be our last, just for the physical and emotional stress/risks it has on me and I started spotting 2 days ago and my blood test is only Thursday! I too was hopeful for implantation spotting, but it's that horrible feeling that each time you go, there is more and it is redder :(
I'm sorry I'm not helping anyone with their questions...just need to let off some steam. thanks for listening :)
Hi, I wanted to see if this thread would keep going. I am experiencing some of the same early bleeding and was wondering if anyone else had the same? I had two 5 day blasts transferred on Friday (feb 22), and yesterday, I started bleeding. It started out a rusty colour, then was brown mid morning. I wasn't super concerned because during my last fet I spotted around the same time and it stopped by the end of the day and resulted in a BFP (miscarried at 9 weeks however). But this time the bleeding got heavier and darker, then redder. It's never been as heavy as a period. I didn't have any bleeding at night or much in my panty liner, but every time I go to the washroom, it dripps into the toilet and its there when I wipe. I was also really crampy last night, like pulling on my uterus, and a little today. And I can feel my heart pounding when I stand up to go to the washroom...which was often yesterday.
I am taking Crinone and estrace. I never took Crinone before I used the other suppositories for progesterone, and now I am worried that my body didnt agree with the Crinone? Did this happen to anyone else, and did it still result in a BFP?
I had my transfer on Easter and now blood test isn't until Friday and have bad cramps and now bleeding :( this te around I have been trying not to stress and been relaxing !! Been through this for over 3 years and this is my second IVF transfer. But it completely feels like a bad period and now blood does this mean I am not pregnant :( !?
Hang in there ladies. I know how hard the 2ww is. I never had the guts to do a hpt. I have seen woman e sure the cycle failed,only to find out they were successful. I will send baby dust your way, and please let us know how things turn out.
Got my result on friday and the Dr said the HCG was too low for him to confirm pregnancy and told me to go again today, Saturday had some redish brown spotting and since yesterday it has turned into period. I did my test anyway as the clinic said i should still go. Im sad and confused
I have been there, but now have a healthy 1 year old after five failed IVF attempts. I also had very heavy bleeding in my first trimester with my son that scared me a lot though they could never find a problem. Sending you positive thoughts. It's so easy to feel hopeless. Good luck.
Many women are not successful on their first ivf cycle. No one knows why, or can give any explanations. I used to compare it to roulette. You have a 50/50 chance of it working. I have seen "perfect" embryos Fail, and "crappy" embryos turn into beautiful children. The only advise I will give you, is please, do not give up!! I have been on this site for many years, and have seen 90% or better of the people find success, if they didn't give up. You are in my thoughts!
Thanx for giving us some courage. I got my second results and the Dr says the HCG has gone a bit higher although im having my priods. Send back for more blood tests. This is frustrating, but im not losing hope. Thanx guys
I had 2 embryo's transfered after a 3 day, one at 6 cell the other at 7, its now being 7 days and am starting to get some light bleeding its red & brown No cramping as of yet, But my boobs are still really tender, Im now worrying thinking that it hasn't work again, this is my 2nd cycle as I had iui last time but it didn't work, I have no eggs frozen,
:( any 1 know if this is a good sign or bad? I have 4 days til test.
**this is what happens in a 3dt :
Here is a timeline as to what is going on. Maybe you are experiencing implantation bleeding? Sending baby dust your way!!
1dpt ..embryo is growing and developing
2dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst
3dpt....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
4dpt.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
5dpt.. Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
6dpt.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
7dpt.. Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells &
8dpt...Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
9dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
10dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
11dpt...HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on
hi All, im new to this site, and I've found it really interesting... this is my first ivf cycle, I had my transfer on 8/9 now im waiting to be tested on Wed 8/21. yesterday I found I was bleeding it feel that I have my period. I called my dr. she told me to hang in there until Wed. that feeling is annoying cause I want to know what's happening.... does anyone had this feeling in the past and still get pregnant?
I have posted on this site several other times, that I have found that tree is nothing normal or abnormal during the 2ww. I have seen ladies have period like bleeding still go on to a normal pregnancy. As for me, I had bleeding after my confirmed bfp. It started at week 6 and lasted till week 16. It was pretty much every day. Brown, red, heavy, light. It drove me crazy, but I had a successful pregnancy.
Did you see the breakdown of what happens day by day after your transfer? It was the post right above yours?
Are you going to do a home pregnancy test or wait your bloodwork? I never had the guts to poas...
Hang in there!!! How many embryos did you transfer????
Hi this is my first post on any forum, and also my first attempt at ivf after three failed iuis. I had my et on Wednesday the 21 and started bad cramping immediately after only to start a light spotting a couple days ago which has been on and off since. Although tonight the cramps are almost unbearable and the light spotting now looks like a full flow period with clotting. I get my beta tomorrow so hoping this is all normal for a 2 embryo 5day transfer, any and all feedback is more than welcome
Impatiently waiting for tomorrow :/
Do you count the day of transfer as day one? If so im on day 8 and have spotting again is that good or bad to have spooting twice with cramps. The first time was on day 5 with really bad pains and thid time mild pain. Can you help put my mind at rest.
I hope so too!! :). Here is the info for what happens after a 3 day transfer :)
3 Day Transfer:
1dpt... Embryo is growing and developing
2dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst
3dpt... Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
4dpt... Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
5dpt... Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
6dpt... Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
7dpt... Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells & fetal cells
8dpt... Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood today!
9dpt... More HCG is produced as fetus develops
10dpt... More HCG is produced as fetus develops
11dpt... HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

And good look to you all having your bloods done :)
I did a hpt todsy 3 dsys early and it came up not pregnant but it still doesn't mean its all gone downhill dose it. As im still being sick and brests are a bit uncomfortable and im still bleeding a bit. I just want this to work.
I had 2 embryo's transferred late the afternoon of the 16th, one was grade2 and one grade2-3. I have low AMH and this is my second ivf with a new gynae. I can try a home test tomorrow morning but I am nervous and afraid. I am feeling the same pains and aches before a period. I really hope there is a chance
I started spotting on Friday! I saw blood for few minutes then it stopped. On Saturday the same. And now have just seen blood few minutes ago. Am loosing hope. Have cried and cried as I do not want to go through it again.
Have lost my dear, today is my 12th day post embryo transfer. For the last 3 days have been bleeding very heavy than ever plass a server stomach cramp. I called the clinic and they said to me that my period came early o may be it dint work. But they still need me for blood test. I had a urine test this morning and it was negative . All the hopes and dream I had have gone with wind. Am so disappointed. Will let you. Have cried and cried. Have lost appetite can't eat am depressed. I still have 3 frozen embryo might try ones more. Not sure though.

Hello, thanks for the encouragement you gave me. I had my test this morning and it was negative, am going to book the next appointment with my doctor to discuss about the next cycle. Will never give up.
So sorry to hear mine was a negative as well which I thought as I did end up having a period. We have one frozen so not so much drugs and crap next round glad to hear your going to keep on trying I have frozen transfer is a lot less stressful and some say higher success rate so here's hoping
Oh dear yours was negative as well. Am sorry to hear that. Don't give up just try again as you have frozen embryo.
I have three frozen embryo as well. Am praying for you and you do the sama for me. Our dream will soon come true. Believe and trust in God. I wish you all the best. Keep me updated, I will do the same.
