Bleeding day 10 post embryo transfer. Need advice.

I had a day 3 embryo transfer. Today is day 10 post embryo transfer. I had been spotting since day 7 post embryo transfer. It was pinkish and sometimes brown. I thought it was the implantation spotting. However, today it got worse. The discharge is dark red, more like menstrual bleeding but lesser. My test is tomorrow. I’m  freaking out, need some advice.

Hello sweetie!  It's such a nerve wrecking time!  Have faith.  Lots of women do have spotting in early pregnancy.  This definitely could be you.  When is your test?  Have you taken it yet?  hugs, we're here for you

Hi. I am extremely sorry for this late reply. I was a big fat negative. My doc said both the embryos didn’t latch on. That’s why I was bleeding. It was my normal mestrual cycle. I was heartbroken. I have 3 frozen embryos. Will be going through a transfer this month after my menses. Please pray for me.
So sorry to hear this!  Let us know how things go later this month- hoping for some good news for you!

Could you please drop us a line on the outcome. I've experienced some pinkish spotting turning into big brown spot. Then just cramping. Didn't have this spotting red. But I read some posts on other boards ladies have  such spotting up to 10 wks of pregnancy!! Quite weird, isn't it..My nurse at repro center told it was innocent unless heavy bleeding. (i'm currently prego with baby#1 through ivf overseas). Hope this was a good sign of implantation for you and you're on the prego list now. All my best thoughts going your way.

I'm so sorry to hear this, honey. If we get an answer for the failure we faced, then we tend to have peace of mind, because we believe that we can achieve success the next time around if we can rectify what went wrong in the previous attempt. But when an IVF cycle fails unfortunately no one has an answer for the same – not even your doctor! You might have had a perfect cycle – lots of eggs, good fertilization rate, good quality embryos, excellent endometrium, easy embryo transfer – but no positive pregnancy test! On the other hand your friend might have had a very poor IVF cycle (with few eggs and poor quality embryos) and they might end up getting pregnant! IVF is like a gamble. It involves not only your money, but also your fragile baby dreams! The sad truth is that there is no logical explanation for the outcome of an IVF cycle – be it a success or a failure. I'll be keeping you in my prayers, honey. May the remaining beans be much more lucky with the comming cycle. All my positive thoughts going your way!!
