Back for another update. The spotting and bleeding was actually due to a heterotopic pregnancy. Two embroyos were transfereed, one was viable in the uterus and the other one was in my left tube. I had to undergo a surgery to remove the ectopic pregnancy and my tube. I am now 9 weeks pregnant and the viable pregnancy is doing well. The heartbeat is strong and size is healthy. The spotting and bleeding has also stopped. Good luck to everyone!!

Glad to read this to night. I'm going for my blood test in the AM. This is my second IVF. First one was successful and I have a happy, healthy 2 year old. We only had 1 embryo to transfer first time and same this time. I never had any spotting bleeding the first time, I started spotting 10 days post transfer this time, I called the nurse immediately, today is day 11 still spotting getting redder and heavier today, I called the nurse again so we're testing 3 days early so I can know before the weekend, but still not quite full flow. I had given up all hope yesterday and resigned myself to a failed IVF cycle. With no plans to try again. Today I feel hopeful and even more so tonight after having read this, sure hope I can sleep tonight. I lost all my symptoms early this week too, sore breasts, bloating etc, but I'm sure that was just coming down off all the meds, they used double the doses this time for me. I did accupuncture same as last time and used extra drugs for the retrieval as I found it quite painful the first time. We had only 1 egg fertilize after getting 13 from retrieval, very disappointing, so I have no back up plan.. Good Luck to all. It only takes one. I'm very thankful to have my son, I just want him to have a little brother or sister now.

Hi Ladies. This site has helped ease my worries! I had my first IVF cycle after close to 3 yrs tcc normally and through meds, shots, & IUI. I'm on 7w5d pregnant and had quite a scare two nights ago w/ light bleeding. I made an appt w/ RE & he checked babies heartbeats. My twins are doing fine, but I have to continue progestrone supp & estrace. I was told I stop baby aspirin. Hopefully, this will ease the spotting. But, if it's natural & good after IVF, it'll be ok if it continues (just as long as I don't freak out every time!) Good Luck to everyone! May the man above protect us who are pregnant (even a little) and help those that are still trying. Never lose hope ladies!

I had taken my HPT at 10 days past egg retrieval and it was a faint positive. Just use an early home preg test. Each successive day it became a darker line. Spotting for me did not begin until 19 dpr and was told it was because of the progesterone oil and caps. Crossing my fingers for everyone.

I am 8 days post ivf day 5 transfer. We transfered 2 beautiful embryos. Im nervous I feel great just a bit tired, but I have had no spotting at all. This is my first and only IVF due to cost, I really hope it works. I have one more week to wait to get my blood drawn. My Dr. draws it 14 days post transfer. I was thinking of taking a preg. test but Im too nervous.

Thank you all for posting on this site. It has given me much hope. We are on 5 yr 4 months trying to conceive but did not try using IUI and IVF until late last year. We had 2 failed IUI's and are on our 1st IVF cycle (with ICSI and assisted hatching). The transfer was done on Apr 2, 2010. The 2ww was crazy. Any symptons I thought I had has disappeared but on our first beta, we had 316. The 2nd beta was 912. But today I am at 16 dpt (3DT)and have had cramping this morning, followed by brown discharge. I was really worried and called my RE and was told not to worry. Finding this site has been a blessing and has reassured me that things might still be going ok. Leslie

I just wanted to write a note to those that are on the 2ww. I went nuts! I didn't have one spec of spotting and was convinced I wasn't pregnant. Two embryos were transfered on Wednesday, April 7th. Well, on Tuesday, April 13 I went in for my first blood work and they knew I was prego (but waited till Friday's blood work to tell me!) On Tuesday my hcg was at 20, then Friday's was 103. I go back on Monday and hope to have a high number. So- to all of you out there, every pregnancy is different! Don't drive yourself crazy- just keep busy and good luck!

Hi, I'm 25 and been ttc for 4 yrs. Now 5w3d pg after 1st IVF cycle. Have had light brown discharge every day 4 last week and a half. Had pink watery bleeding after sex- so have sworn off sex 4 now!! Clinic said it is not normal, but doesn't necesarily mean mc unless it is bright red with cramping. Also said only thing I can do 2 help is not have hot showers/bath or do anything too physical. Bhcg and progesterone levels keep coming back good so I guess it's just a waitin game... So anxious and have so much invested in this preg! Good luck 2 all.

Hello, I really haven't been able to find any info that applies to me. I am 26 and have PCOS. I find out the results of my first IVF tomorrow. Right now, I have no symptoms other than sore breasts and tiredness, and some gas (which I'm assuming are from the progesterone suppositories). I overstimulated terribly after retrieval, couldn't get out of bed for four days (35 eggs were extracted, 24 viable, 24 fertilized, 2 transfered, 13 frozen). Luckily, I felt good when it came to my day five transfer. A couple of days after I had some pain in my right ovary, and then the left, cramping similar to a period too, but absolutly no spotting - ever (not after retrieval, not after transfer, never). Does anyone have any insight on this? Is is a bad thing if I don't spot?

Hiladies. This is my 3rd try at IVF with ICSI. We have had 2 children naturally,nut due to a medical issue of dh we now need IVF. It is day 11 past transfer and I had a little pink on the paper twicw today. 1st thing in the morn and then the next time at potty. Since then practically chugging water and no more discoloration, but I am gutted at the idea of this being signs of my period. My last 2 tries I had spotting day 8 and then day 9 for about thrww days. Both times were BFN. Hoping since it isds so much later and lighter this time I will get a BFN. This sight has been tremendous at improving my mood. Thanks to you all. TRYING to keep my chin up, but sort of hate going to the potty and checkin gthings out. I will update. Blood test is in 2 days(fri)

Hello, Thanks again for this site! I am 40 years old and just had my 3rd IVF. So far, this time things have been going really well...lots of symptoms coming and going... You are so right about feeling so pregnant at first -- so many hormones -- Then yesterday I experienced full blown nausea and vomitting on/off at work (always the best place to be nauseous and needing to throw up!) Then today, no nausea but small amounts of light brown spotting on pantiliner (experience has taught me to wear one at this time should I be tempted to avoid looking at the tissue paper). Beta is tomorrow. The spotting spun me into a panic. Your site and all the feedback is helping calm my jittery, neurotic post-ivf nerves. Thank you!

I have now just started to bleed again a pinkish sometimes brownish discharge. I am on day seven of gonalf stim drug and am so worried that this bleeding might mean they cancel my cycle . Has anyone spotted before a transfer or a week after d&c. Thankyou for any info

Hi, im 13 weeks pregnant after my second ivf. My main concern was the spotting ive been having since i became pregnant. Its not all the time and i dont have any sharp cramps. I was monitored by my fertility specialist every week and had tons of questions for him. Usually it was the same one: is my spotting normal? He always reassured me that it is, but i still had that lingering doubt, maybe because this is my first pregnancy and im not sure what to expect...But after reading this info, i do feel more at ease. Thank you very much!

Dori said:
Hello all, I'm in my 1st IVF cycle, 9 days after transfer. I have been pregnant(naturally) 4 times, all ending in miscarriage. We have a chromosomal abnormality so we decided to do pgd(testing the embryos on day three before transfer) and ivf. We got 3 chromosomally correct embryos(out of 15) and my dr put all in. This morning I started bleeding and bad cramping(just like a bad period) I'm guessing that's bad news. :( going to dr in morning for hcg test. This has been a really rough 2 years and my husband and I are worn out and feeling a little weary. We are young and used a lot of our savings for this. God must have a plan that's different than ours:) Blessings to all of you.

Hi all, first of all, thanks so much for creating and contributing to this site - it is wonderful. I am 13 dpo after my second IVF cycle with two embies transferred. Over a year ago I got pregnant with my first IVF cycle but miscarried at 10 weeks. Then I had an abdominal myomectomy and got a BFN after an FET. Today for the first time since the transfer, I had liquidy, light brown discharge, enough to cover a pantiliner. I called my RE and he said that this could be caused by the progesterone suppositories and not to worry. Has anyone else experienced this? My beta test is on Friday. I had tender, fuller breasts until 11 dpo but then my breasts seems to return to normal. And now they are fuller again but not tender. I'm so confused!

BABY said:
Hello, Aimee you and I are in the same exact boat. I had a 5 day transfer and am now 5 weeks 2 days but I am bleeding like a faucet. I am using the crinone cream but I can't understand why I am bleeding so much. Just this past Sunday I started bleeding and cramping so much that I went to the doc and had my first ultrasound done. The doc said I was doing good and they could see the sac. Today is Wed night and I am bleeding again. ughhhhh my first beta was 219 and my second beta was 2200 so the doc is happy with my numbers. Anyone else bleed tons and still carried to full term?? Thank you for helping, I feel I am losing the baby every sec. P.S. I have 2 healthy kids who I had naturally so this IVF stuff is so new to me. We went with it for the sex selection. Thanks for helping- sending lots of baby dust!

I have read on here that people want posts after people have had their blood tests... Well I started to spot on Friday night. It increased to bright red blood on Saturday and some cramping. We went to the ER so I could sleep that night knowing my HgC levels were increasing. They went up fron 186 to 2102 in 4 days which was a very positive sign. Came home from the ER and the bleeding increase more. We thought maybe fromt he IV fluids they gave me. Sunday morning went to see my IVF doctor and get an ultrasound. Although I was only 4 weeks pregnant 2 1/2 weeks after embryo transfer. They were able to find 1 embryonic sac. I had 2 embryo transfers on 11/15. Doctor said everything was fine but switched me from suppositories of the progesterone to the shots. Last night I began to cramp worse and bleed even more with clots. Went to the doctor today for another blood reading and ultrasound. Ultrasounds showed again one embryonic sac and was put on bed rest until the bleeding stops. Blood levels came back to 3800 which is a very good sign from Saturday night 2100. So although I am bleeding, clotting and cramping a lot more they still have very high hopes that things will be fine.

Hello everyone! I'm a 3rd time ivf patient & was so overwhelmed with joy when I came across this wonderful page. Anyway here is my story which relates to everyone on this web-site! My first ivf (Failed) 12th Feb 09. The 6 eggs did not split as they wanted them too. I started the 2nd ivf cycle on the 13th May and it was alot better. On the day of the retrieval they got 6 but only 2 was good. I had a 2 day transfer which was on the 18th June but only 1 rated an A grade, to which I was still pretty happy to hear. I did my hpt 14 days after transfer & got a (Positive) then to make sure that the first result was true I did a second test & again (Positive). 4 days after I start to bleed pink/red colour & freaked out. I told my husband that I knew there was something wrong. I had no pain whatsoever & called our clinic...and as the story go's (Thats normal & not to worry about it. Not unless I start getting cramping pains etc...) But I just knew in my heart that the embryo didn't work. 7W/4D into the pregnancy I just woke up that morning, had breakfast then I just felt absolutely weird so I rushed to the toilet & from out of the blues it's like somebody turned the tap on full blast it all came out...Then my husband called the hospital & rushed me in. This wonderful DC did a U/S as I laid there crying & said that my body had taken care of the embryo as the U/S showed a large amount of clotting & bleeding coming out, I'd had a M/C. In one way I was happy, but in the other hand I wished my feelings were wrong so my wonderful husband & I went home & cuddle & had a really good cry...it was over. Now on my 3rd ivf cycle which started 26th September again the long wait as usual! By the 13th October they'd upped my meds to (450mg x1) and Nasal spray 1 x4 every day! by the 27th October day of retrieval they got 9 eggs but only 5 split during the 2 day wait! On the 29th Oct day of transfer they were happy to say that from the 5 eggs 2 were excellent to place back...my husband & I cried for joy & just taking things as they come. I had the transfer on the 29th Oct & had to do a hpt the 13th Nov right on my husband birthday & it was really good news...it showed a (POSITIVE) What a great birthday he had...lol! But the day after I started to have a really small brown discharge on and off that very day, then the following day it went from brown to a dark brown/red. I didn't need to use my normal pads as I used only liners & didn't need to change them much at all. All of that started on the 14th during the 16th & 17th I've had Reddish bleedings & little tissues after peeing & T/P but this isn't a all day thing, that only happens either after I've taken my vaginal progesteron pallet....kinda weird if you ask me. We called the clinic to let them know what was happening and of cause you get the same old story, but still I was happy they knew. They've made a appointment for my very 1st U/S on the 2nd December, which I can't wait. I am still using Progesteron Vaginal Pallets at (400mg 3x day) yesterday & today hardly anything bleeding whatsoever and nomore clotting coming out, but will keep and eye out all the same...Well I will keep you's all up-to-date if anything new happens...Just thought that somebody out there needed another shoulder to lean on & hope my story helps....Wish me luck everyone & God bless you all & keep you safe & Thanks a million for this fantastic Site I love it!!! Alice

Hello again,(last posted Jan 09)i am back on this wonderful site, the best i have found, on my 5th icsi attempt,3 fresh transfered 4/10/09, have been feeling really positive until this week i have been woken by severe cramps in the night and feel very nausea even middle of the night. Hpt revealed bfn, still being positive though my clinic says its too early to test, so many of you have these cramps and end up with bfp so i'm hanging on to every comment! I pray to god this works for me this time,possibly my last. My heart goes out to all of you going through this, and congratulations to you Nicola and all who have had success.

I'm not an IVF patient but I'm 42 and pregnant for the second time (we lost the first one at 8w 3d last Oct). I don't have any nausea. My tiredness is going away and the boobs, while still sore, don't seem as sore as they were. I've got an u/s scheduled next week but since we've lost one already and I'm older I'm freaking myself out.

Hi! I too began the brownish discharge 11 dpo, and then at 12 dpo it was watery/pink, and 13 dpo back to brownish/chalky from the 100mg Endometrin vaginal suppositiries which I had begun on the day post retrieval. For 2 days it was back to clear on my pantyliner. YAY! I called my nurse because I had 2 more days til BETA. Well, my hubby and I couldn't wait so we got a First Response 2-pack. I peed in a cup, and he dipped the stick. It was positive at 14 dpo! The next morning we did it again, and BFP! So, we went for BETA and 24 hrs later the doctor called herself to tell me "Congratulations, you're pregnant!" I told her I was very happy, but still worried because just after I had my blood drawn, my spotting had come back and now it was bright red. She said it can be caused by the suppositories, and/or increased bloodflow to the uterus, and/or since we had transferred 2 embies maybe one just didn't make it....But that I was definitely pregnant with HIGH numbers and everything looks good. I will go for my second beta Monday. I have been having watery pink discharge since the test day (3 days now). I know everything will be OK after reading all the posts, and I hope this helped with all of you :o) I want twins!!! I have a 10 year old son, and he has been wanting a sibling since he was 4...It's got to happen for him, and he is the most positive guy you'll ever meet! This site is exactly what I needed, and thanks to my big sister for finding it and e-mailing me the link. I will follow up after my second BETA in a few days...

Day 11 after transfer and I have had brownish discharge for two days. Praying that it is from the progesterone but thinking i am maybe dreaming??? My head is telling me that I am not pergnant but my heart is hoping that I am. Just don't want to have false hope. Would love to know how common the discharge thing is with suppositories. Just want to say that my heart goes out to all going through this process.

I posted a comment on this page on dec 6th 2007, i had just had a misscarraige on my second ivf cycle. Since then i had a 3rd cycle and nothing came of it. My husband and i decided that we needed a cut off point and decided to have more final chance. i felt that i was becoming addicted to the whole ivf process. ( NOT THE TREATMENT BUT THE HOPE). My 4th and final try was stressful because i knew it was going to be the last. I eventually stopped worrying about it and decided to just get on with life. And guess what I'm now 4 months pregnant with TWINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everything is going great and we are delighted. I hope that nobody gives up hope, we didn't and it worked out for us.

I am at the 2 week wait. my first ivf attempt was exactly 7 days ago. I have had absolutely NO spotting. My doc said if I spotted not to think of it as a miscarriage, but no spotting wasn't assurance of no miscarriage. I'm so confused. I go back for my pg test in 5 days. Also, can anyone tell me if the feelings I have are from the hormone therapy or if they are real.....like- crying at the drop of a hat, nothing tastes right anymore, and I noticed my breasts becoming larger, tenderer, and things getting darker. Is it real or therapy induced? Help! I can't get any answers.

Started bleeding Sunday night- 5 days after day blast 5 transfer. Started mostly brown/pink but then began to be consistent and watery bright red, so bleeding now for 24 hours. Called today to let them know I'd started my period and nurse said it was impossible, that I must wait for blood test which is Friday. On 2 doses of 200mg progesterone (prometrium) suppositories per day, estrogen patches every other day, bay aspirin. Nurse did say to bump it up to 3 doses of 200mg prometrium per day and to put an additional patch on. Still bleeding, so we'll see. Thought it was strange that nurse said "impossible" that I could be having my menstrual cycle. It sure walks and talks like a menstrual cycle so far. Will let you know what happens next.

I am on 3rd IVF (1 fresh, 2 frozen). Day 8 post-transfer and very very faint tan/pale pink spot when wiping. Seems lots of you have spotting. Is this normal? Not a lick of other symptons, except tired - and probably due to weather and anxiety of this! Beta in 3 days. Anyone tracking how many of us are PG and not when spotting? Just curious what the ratio is... Thanks for the posts!

I always swear I would come to all the IVF forum to post my symtom to reassure you guys once I am pregnan. Guess what, this morning I had my test and it was possitve. I went through all the steps, scares like you all: Brown discharge, bloated, swollen breasts, back pain, cramp (there are 3 times I feel strong the cramps, 4 days after my FET, a week later and 10 days later) The cramp get better and not as servere as the 1st time. I thought my period is coming already, so scary. I remember I was traveling on a bus and felt this pain. I went home, lay down and put my hands in my tummy, pray for the embies to be alright! 10 years of marriages with 3 failed IVF, this is my first time possitive.

Well we had our 2 1/2 year old in 2006 naturally but emergency c indicated I had a unicornuate uterus. After 2 years of trying for another we went the IVF route. Last Thursday on day 10 of transfer I was told my beta was 9.7 not promising..they tested way too early. Sunday my beta was 117...unfortunately starting spotting Monday. I pray I haven't lost the pregnancy...same deal wiping when I went to the pottie. I am wearing white to defy the odds and show GOD I believe in miracles. I test again tomorrow being Wed. I am doing progesterone injections and pray I just have a plump lining tooo can anyone make me feel better...

Thank you for this information. I have Googled many things because you are right, for some reason the Doctors don't tell you anything "little", which this must be to them, cramping, brown spotting, crazy mood swings, and IVF patients have enough to worry about or to stress them out, but when you just don't know it does worry you. So I just came across your information while looking for answers and I feel so much better. Thank you for sharing with others. (even if the post was re-shared)

Thank you for sharing your experience. The IVF doctors definitely don't tell you anything beyond the transfer. It is great that you guys that went through IVF are willing to share your experience. I started to spot 8 days after the transfer and even though my Bhcg are all good, the doctors can not tell me if that is normal for IVF pregnancy. Thanks for sharing. I am still hoping that it will stop soon. How long does it last anyway?

Hi, what a truelly lovely sight, I have been inspired by all the different stories that all these different sight have. I'm 40 and today I just had ny negative result after my 4th ivf attempt. but stangly I have been more positve in this attempt than any other.when I spotted for 4 days 6dpobut really believed it to be implantation spotting. My progeterone levels where good then. Unfortunately they dropped and they didn't stick. Yes of course I cried but I know I'll be O.K.I was calmer, and stayed more focused. I had had accupunctor and really believed it would happen this time. Oh well. Such is life. There is No justice!!!! I wish you all well, I send you all baby dust, Sticky emmbies, positvity and love and light. Never give up. If you believe, it WILL Happen. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Everyone, I haven’t written to this sight for a few months now. I had three IUI’s, before we went in for IVF. I had five embryos, from which 3 were transferred in March. I too had a lot of cramping for the first week or so and then some spotting, a bit pinkish and then brown for about two to three days. I was put on several different drugs at the time. And I too went through a lot of crying and sleepless nights. I wanted this baby so badly that I took time off work and basically took bed rest till I got my positive result. And then stayed off work again for 3 months till I was sure everything was ok, but still took it easy… I didn’t push, pull or carry anything. Stayed off high heels and travelling about except to the doctors. I know it might sound silly doing all these things; however it worked, thank God!! So it was worth it. Now I am due in about a week and I am so excited and looking forward to my little son’s arrival. If you can take time off work and take it easy after your IVF, I think it helps a great deal. Take care, good luck and good Bless you all….. Angel XXXX

I just got done with my first IVF cycle... my ET was on 10/19... so today is the 11th day past ET. Yesterday when i went to go put in my progesterone suppository at the end of the workday I saw light brown spotting... i started flipping out and called the doc... he said not to worry and that IVF patients have spotting due to hyperstimulation of the uterus... that calmed my nerves a bit... then that evening i had more spotting... then this morning i had more.. but it was pinkishy red... then I went in to take my blood test and got to work.. and i think i'v started my period... its fresh red blood... I was getting so excited that today would've been the 33rd day of my cycle.. but its over... hopefully by some miracle this bleeding will stop and the nurse will call and give me good news but I know that it's not very likely...:(.. At least I've got some more FE's... for some more chances... This site was helpful.. its nice to know that we're not alone in this... good luck and prayers for all of u..:)

Hi. I just got back from a follow-up with my RE after my 2nd failed ivf. When he was reviewing my information, he read that my latest fsh had become elevated to 10 (it was 4.2 this last November). Needless to say, I practically began to weep in front of him, thinking that my eggs just weren't going to be good enough and would keep declining. He said he doesn't know why there was a dramatic decline, but it explained why I would only get 2 really good eggs to transfer out of 16-18 which fertilized. I'm wondering if any of you had had success with an fsh of 10 or higher. Up until November, my fsh read at 4.2, which had given me a bit of hope to hold onto in conjunction with my age...at least the RE had a lot of hope...told me I had a 50/50 chance with each ivf cycle. But, when it came time for egg transfer, only 2 out of 14-18 eggs were 8 or 7 cell to transfer and the rest were of poor quality. He couldn't figure out why...but now might have an answer since my fsh has risen so much. The RE says that my age (34) is in my favor and that age "trumps" fsh levels, but I'm really scared of this sudden increase and worry that it will only get higher. He could not give me any answers or reasons as to why this increase occurred and all his responses were so vague and unreassuring. By the way...my response to the hormones are good, its just the quality that isn't so great, so I'm not sure what that means either. I'd call him back, but I feel I'd get the same vague answers and leave feeling just as sad and confused. The drama just continues...like living in a bad soap opera. Argh! Any thoughts or words of wisdom would really be appreciated. I feel like I was finally getting over my last failed ivf, just to be knocked back down with an even worse blow to my hopes. ps..sorry for the repeats in this email and post, I just wanted to make sure that i got my question across and my thoughts haven't been clear and concise since all this has happened. Thank you. Sharon

I posted back on 8/4 during my 3rd IVF cycle. Unfortunately, that didn't work. Here we go again with cycle #4. We transferred back 5 embryo's this cycle and also did assisted hatching, which we haven't done before. We were also told they were monitoring 3 additional embryo's for blastocyst and would freeze them. That's never happened for us before and was encouraging. However, they won't give us that information for 2 weeks (more waiting!). It has been 6 days since ET and I am having those same menstrual cramps I had the last 3 cycles. I still have 5 days to go before my BT, but tomorrow is the day I would normally get my period. I am trying to stay positive, but it's so difficult. All the posts I read, many people experience menstrual cramps and feel like they are going to get it anyday, but don't and find out they are pregnant....I so wish that for me...and you. Good luck everyone.

Asha said:
One of the most helpful tips I received when going through IVF and using progesterone (injections and cream) is to know that progesterone causes pregnancy symptoms on its own. I was driving myself crazy during the two week wait, trying to listen to my body for any signs of pregnancy before (and after!) the blood test. Turns out, fatigue, nausea, mild cramping, abdominal heaviness and bloating can all be caused by progesterone. So, if you are in tune with your body and can usually recognize certain symptoms, please know that these symptoms may be artifically induced by your use of progesterone. For me, this knowledge helped me wait for the test results more patiently and not lose my mind in the interim.

well today sunday i am on day 12 after et, with blood test due on tuesday in 2 days time. i started spotting sat morning and as the day wore on, stayed that way. Then last night woke up around 2.30am with pretty much a full bleed, like a period. Today its continued, not as heavy, much lighter but very upsetting as you can imagine. Rang the nurse and burst into tears, couldnt even talk! V embarassing. She still insisted that I come in for bt on Tuesday, and that amazingly I could still be pregnant. Have had headaches for 2 days and the most sorest pain in my lower back. I am 38, my last child naturally born 15 years ago, and remarried just 2 weeks ago. I have been strong and positive until this past w.end, and have been crying on and off since Friday with the tension, and suspense of it all. Plus, my dreams of holding that precious little baby is still so vivid in my head. Isnt it just amazing how much you want something so badly? Anyway as each hour passes and my period doesnt stop, my hopes are fading but I cling on until tuesday.....wish me luck!

Wow! How refreshing it is to hear similar stories/worries! I just finished my 3rd IVF cycle and go for my Beta HCG tomorrow. Started spotting day 11 post transfer and am still spotting today. I had pretty much thrown in the towel and had been crying upon the sight of blood. Didn't want to call Dr. because I knew they would tell me it was to early and I needed to wait until the hcg test. I am so glad I stumbled on this site because it sounds like I have hope and am going into my test tomorrow with a postive glimmer of hope. Sometimes it's so hard to stay positive :(. I hope it's God's will that my time to be a mom starts tomorrow with a positive! Wish me luck ladies.

I'm so glad I found this link today! I am 42 years old, on our 3rd IVF cycle (hoping this one works!). On 7/26 they transfer 5 embroys after day 3. I was scheduled for blood work on 8/6, but started bleeding on 8/3 (day 25, which is when I would normally get my period). I went in this morning, 8/4, for blood work and am now waiting for "the call". I just don't know what to think. However, reading all of your postings is giving me hope that it may not be over yet. Keeping my fingers crossed! Good luck to all of you!

I just had a frozen cycle transfer on Wednesday and today is Sunday and I have seen a brown (dark ) spot on the panty sheild. No cramping and no other signs. Does this mean it didn't work? They put two in and they both were just about to go to blastocyst stage.

Well I don't know what to think... I had my blood test today (this was my second IVF attempt) and they called back and said it was positive - a low positive. My Dr.'s office considers anything over 5 a positive and a normal OBGYN would consider anything over 10 a positive. Now I have to have another test on Monday, but I'm kinda freaked out sice I've had some spotting yesterday and today. I know it can be "normal", but I'm a mess! After clomid and IUI's and a failed IVF in March.... this girl needs a break!

I am 40. I had my first unsuccessful IVF in February 2008. 2 embryos. Prior my pregnancy test (2 weeks after the transfer) I had no spotting or any kind of discharge. I got my periods in 2-3 days after stopping the progesterone. In June 2008 I had my second unsuccessful IVF. 3 embryos. Prior my pregnancy test in 10 days, I took home test 2 days before and it was negative. I started to sport on the 9th day (only when I wipe). My progesterone level was 29. I stopped progesterone shorts when I was informed that I am not pregnant. I got my periods in 3 days. Right away I am going for my 3rd IVF with ZIFT combination (I need to have a least 5 embryo). I am starting my Luprone shorts on the 20th day after my periods started. I am praying – the third time is the charm. There are no words to describe my sorrow & grief. But I am doing all my best to stay positive! My husband and I are very optimistic that I would become pregnant this time. My husband was my biggest support & wall! Good Luck to all of you, girls!

Hi Nicole, I also had a failed first IVF so know exactly how you feel. I just completed a FET and am waiting (it's so hard) for the result. I had two ultrasounds one at 10 days and the other at 13. The transfer of the 5 day blast was 3 days after the last ultrasound so the whole cycle was 16 days in total so much easier than IVF. I was on estrace and baby aspirin since day 1 and then added progesterone on day 11. Hope this helps...

No one posted something similar to what I've been experiencing, and I hope that this will help others out that might be in my same position. I started having brown/pink spotting on day 10 after retrieval, and then bright red blood dripping when I used the bathroom on day 11 and today, day 12. I was very concerned that I was having my period, which are irregular and always start this way. I couldn't find anything on bright red blood after IVF, and in fact my clinic told me that they had never had a patient with this (lovely). They brought me in today for a progesterone level, which was 33.6 (nice and high). So they and I are hoping that this is just IVF spotting (albeit heavy). I am hopeful that my beta-HCG is positive in 2 days; I was convinced that I was having a period, but now I have hope.

My pg test was a week later and already had given up all hopes, but the test was weakly positive (hcg 58), and I had another test a week later hcg was 600. I was so eited only to wake up to spotting and cramping the next day. My hcg is dropping and I am likely losing the preganancy. Anyone with similar experince?

I am in my first round of IVF. I had my egg retrieval on 3/20 and a 5 day embryo transfer on 3/25. On 3/31 wiped and had brown discharge. Thought for sure was my period. It went away last night. Today it is back but brown. Not on my pad just on my toilet tissue. Is it too late for implantation bleeding? Is this probably my period starting. I don't really have any symptoms, had cramping but it is gone, my breasts aren't sore. Just not sure what to think. My pregnancy test is Thursday, 4/3. Any thoughts would help.

Hi, I want to thank everyone that has taken the time to post comments on this sight. I am on my first IVF, and I am 36. I had a embryos transfer on the 16/03/08. I too have slight stomach cramps and had brownish discharge last night and again this morning. I am freaking out so badly. I spoke to my doctor and she said it might not be a good sign and I should not get my hopes high. She prescribed a drug called Duphaston 10mg, twice a day. I am also on asprin,cyclgest and prednisolone. My blood test is due on the 30/03/08. But since I read all your comments on this sight today, I am still a bit hopeful. Thanks a million and good luck to you all. Angel…

Hi, I did 3 IUIs and 2nd IUI ended in ectopic and they removed my left tube. This is my first IVF. Beta test 16 days past egg retrieveal at 16.2. Some sort of implantation took place. I have to go back for 2nd beta in 4 days. I did HPT 2 days past first beta test and it came out positive (First response detects pregnancy over 25 HCG). So it means that my HCGs are rising but, I don't klnow if they're doubling. I'm so nervous because I already had an ectopic. I am holding on to some hope for late implantation. Did anyone ever experience this? I am progresterone and I am not bleeding. I have no symptoms of an ectopic. Last time I was spotting and as time went by I was feeling severe cramps. Any advise or thoughts.

Valarie I'm so sorry to hear about the negative result. I have experienced the same thing. I got my period 3 days after the preg test as I stopped taking any hormones on that day. Typically they say anywhere between 3-5 days I suppose. Good luck with your next steps. Hope the best for you.

Hi, I had an unsuccessful IVF cycle in January 08. We're on our 2nd IVF cycle now. Just had my embryo transfer yesterday. I had some spotting (only when I wipe) yesterday but I figured it's to do with the inserting of embryos in the uterus. Since yesterday afternoon, I've been experiencing some pain on the left side of my wasit. I thought it's gas as I typically have metabolism problem (I don't go to the bathroom for 3 days some times). I called the doctor and she said it might be some fluid that they'll have to remove tomorrow morning. Should I be worried about the embryos? Thanks!

I am on my 2nd IVF attempt and Day 9 post transfer of 2 Blastocysts. I'm very hopeful this will work for me. My blood test is 3/6. My husband thinks I'm crazy for spending endless hours googling. Little does he know that all of us obsess over the same things!!! I was so thrilled to find this site today. I too had light brownish/pinkish discharge and started to freak out. I'm trying to stay positive - 3 more days to go.

Hi all, your views are so comforting. I am 36, had first ivf, had embryo transfer (only 1 healthy egg) and 5 days later started spotting and then bleeding continually. I feel so freaked out, like a lot of you have been crying alot, I think aggravated by hormones.....have any of you had lots of bleeding and been cramping and still be pregnant. Have to wait 3 more days before testing.

This site is so helpful. I have been freaking out all day. I am 8 days past 3 day transfer. I started experiencing spotting only when I wipe. It is pinkish and sometimes brown. I called my doctor's office today and was told it could be from the progesterone suppostories. They told me not to worry unless I start bleeding full flow. I have my first beta test on 2/26. I am trying to stay positive and hope for the best.

I am 1 week post 5D transfer and just started spotting. Light, only when I wipe, either brown or watery pink. Also feel slights cramps like period is coming. Called doctor freaking out, and he said it is too early for period and that it is most likely irritation from progesterone suppositories or some implantation bleeding and not to worry. He also put me on oral progesterone in case I was not absorbing the suppositories. I am getting my test in 6 days.

Trammell: How ironic, I had an FET on 11/28 also! Congratulations on your pregnancy! My initial HCG was 787 then 2700 then today down to 2300. I'm sad to see it drop but DR says it may be multiples at first and now only one is growing?!? Sometimes I feel like I know too much. I have my first u/s on the 28th and we will get a better idea of what is going on. Good Luck!

I had my first transfer 11/28/07. I went back 12/7/07 for blood test, Positive,180. Had to go back 2 days later for 2nd blood test, woke up that morning with brown discharge in underwear. I freaked, scared to death that the blood test must have been wrong and that I really was not pregnant. When I got to the dr. office they said that as long as the blood was not bright red then it was normal, my blood test 347, definitely pregnant. I spotted again the next morning but nothing since. This was my first IVF at age 32.

I had my transfer 12/2/07 and my blood test is this Friday the 14th. This is our 1st IVF attempt (3 embryo's 70% chance of a live birth, through egg donation) and I'm so nervous. Friday the 7th I left work early due to bad stomach pains and nausea. I also experienced light cramping. IVF nurse said it could have been implantation or a virus and not to worry nothing could happen to the embryo's at this stage. The weekend turned out not so great. I ended up with severe diarrhea and would like to know if any of you experienced this? I'm afraid if this was a bug of some sort it will lessen the chances of any of my embyro's making it. I also experienced light pinkish discharge this afternoon when I wiped. I am also doing the Estrogen patches, Progesterone Capsules and Baby Aspirin. I must admit this site has helped me feel a bit better with some of my symptoms. Please keep your fingers crossed...

Let me start by saying Nicola,I'm sorry to hear about your lost, especially around the holidays. Hopefully your next cycle will work out. This is the second day I have spotting but it is so light I can only see it when I wipe. The cramps have stopped and Im starting to think its the estrace,baby aspirin and progestrone shots I'm taking.I'm still nervous because my periods have never been very heavy and its too early to feel any REAL pregnancy symptoms.This wait is torture!I called my nurse and she said its no need to be alarmed and give her a call if it gets heavier. 6 days until the beta test.I am still hopeful but prepared for the worse.

For the last few months your page was the most reassuring thing that i have come across on the net. After having one failed ivf atempt we decided to have a second try, to our delight it was sucessful, after a positive result i had some spotting and various types of discharge. On my 5 week scan all seemed well, but i was anxious so we booked a second scan for the following week. It was amazing to see that little person with a heartbeat inside me. As we were put at ease we decided to leave our next scan until this week (i was 9 weeks). This time there was no heartbeat and the foetus had stopped growing at 6weeks 4 days. I was bookind in for a d&c yesterday. It is one of the hardest things i think that i have had to deal with. But i know that i have to carry on,and look to the future. My husband and i are going to have a holiday and when we come back we'll be ready to face it all again.I just want to thank every one who has input on this page. I think that it honest and reasurring and i would be lost without it. Goodluck to all

I am so glad to read everyones comments. This is my 1st IVF cycle and am doing acupuncture along with the cycle. Unfortunately, I didn't start acupuncture until after the transfer. This morning I started to spot along with some cramping and I was already planning for my 2nd cycle because I was sure the spotting was a sign that something was wrong. Hearing everyones story has made me feel a lot better. My 1st preg test is on 12/13. I'll keep everyone posted. Good luck!

The spotting turned into bleeding for half a day but the doctor said it happens, just to stop the baby aspirin. Now it stopped completely and my first u/s is on the 19th. I am very excited.

Just before the test I started brown spotting, got the usual tension headaches, etc...and it came up negative. This tme, they trasnfered four on D5. Yesterday I had the tension stuff again which sent my mind in a million different directions. I have a little brown spotting though not as much as last time. My test is tomorrow and I am trying to stay positive!

I am going to take it as a sign that I found this site today. I just completed my 3rd IVF. I am 5 weeks pregnant. My first beta was 152 but yesterday my beta dropped to 111. The nurse said, "this is not optimal". She said maybe it was a vanishing twin. I had 3 blasts put back so who knows. I have been crying every since. I have another blood test tomorrow and I pray that it goes up. I do not have any spotting and she said my progesterone level is good. I do not know what to think but I will take the info. you have here on hcg levels dropping. It definitely has lifted my spirits today. Thank you so much!

Hi, I am on my first IVF cycle and have had everything going well so far. Today I got a lot of dark brown discharge in the morning and am now getting a light red watery discharge on the tissue when I wipe. I am also needing to go to the toilet a lot more often. I have never been pregnant before and do not have much experience on what is normal for a normal pregnancy let alone for and IVF cycle. I am taking Crinone gel once per day before sleeping. I was due for my first blood test on Monday but after talking to my doctor today and mentioning some spotting she has re-scheduled me for the test tomorrow morning. I am not cramping and am feeling tired in the afternoon lately. I have read that the brown chunky discharge is normal with crinone suppositiories and that spotting or light watery bleeding is normal for IVF. Can anyone please confirm this from experience. I would be especially interested if you have had a similar experience to me with your IVF and the outcome. Thanks :-)

Hi, I just had a FET on 08/29/07 (1st cycle failed). I started to see some brown spotting on the 6th day which is still going on (today is the 15th day meaning it has been 9 days). Does this mean it's over? I have HCG level test scheduled for 09/13. But the wait is driving me crazy. I don't feel pregnant and other than a little breast tenderness (could be due to delestrogen shots), there's no other symptom. Any one had similar experience?

Hi, thank you for addressing the issue of spotting. I had 3 rounds of IVF with the 3rd being the charm!! I am 10 weeks pg and I have been spotting for 6 days now. I went back to my doctor and they did the u/s and said everything looks good. This is my first baby at 36 and I just want everything to be perfect. I asked why would I have spotting if everything is good, and all they would say is that some women have spotting. One u/s technician did tell me that sometimes the vaginal suppositories may cause bleeding. Please update the site, this is the best info I have received!!!!! No more googling for me today!!!!

You have no idea how you saved me today. I woke up this morning to go pee...nothing unusual...had been doing it all night at 2-3 hour intervals. This time, in the daylight, I decided to inspect the toilet tissue. 2 miscarriages after 2 IVFs in the past year tend to make a gal do these things as you know. There it was. The dreaded liquidy brownish discharge. I had seen it before with my first miscarriage and I immediately began to panic. I called my husband into the bathroom for a double inspect and in his usual manner, just told me to relax and that everything is fine. Easy for him to say. I wasn't going to get anywhere listening to his eternal optimism so I immediately went back to bed and started googling "brown discharge" and "early pregnancy" from my blackberry. Oh, that helped. In between googling sessions, I ran to the bathroom to pee and tissue inspect. More brown/pinkish discharge. I was losing it. Not wanting to call my RE for fear of facing what I perceived as the inevitable, I just kept peeing, tissue inspecting and googling...then I found you! I'm only 6 weeks pregnant after my 3rd IVF (this time with PGD due to chromosomal abnormality with 2nd miscarriage...first one undetermined cause since I lost the pregnancy tissue at home). I'm also on lovenox for "slight clotting issue". 2 weeks ago I was also convinced I was miscarrying because I had severe lower back pains but turns out that was just OHSS. Gallons of gatorade later, the OHSS has subsided only to be replaced with the dreaded discharge this AM. Anyhow, I read your entire blog and you have no idea how much your practical advice helped. I am done googling (at least for today) and will just return to A Beautiful Day if I start to freak again. (I can't promise that I'm done with tissue inspections though :) Congrats on making it to the other side. If you have any other advice for this IVF/pregnancy induced neurosis, please share. Many thanks, Becca

Hi, I'm not sure where to begin. This is my 2nd invitro. my first was a fresh transfer of 3 which all 3 took initally. I started spotting, and hcg level dipped from 1600 to 700. I was told YOU HAVE LOST ALL YOUR BABIES there is no viable pregnancy. Needless to say, I had and still have a beautiful baby girl that just turned 2. This is my second attempt. I had two Blastacyst ( frozen ) transfers 4/22 and confirmed pg on 5/5. My hcg level was 3008 and I was told " congratulations"... 2 days later I took another hcg test and it showed only going up 1/2 point . I was told by the same Jerk DR ( not my Dr.) that I had no viable pregnancy. I have been sobbing all day. In some way I don't beleive him, as he was dead wrong 3 years ago, but my heart is also telling me my baby is gone. My mom read something that said hcg levels don't always go up for 72-96 hours. Since mine went up 1/2 point, you'd think that I didn't lose my baby. I also think 3008 is the " Average" number even though it's a frozen embryo transfer. Who knows, to some degree I might still be wishful hoping. I'v been crying my eyes out and have a horrible knot in my tummy. If anyone could shed some light and hope for me, I would appreciate it. Thanks for listening Jill~

Hi There: Things are really great right now !!! Had 8 week U.S. yesterday. Showed heatbeat of 173 BPM !!! Progesterone levels also good, but have gone down (56.9 at 6 weeks to 42 yesterday). Again, my DR office telling me no cause for concern, that fluctuating Progesterone levels are common (I am also on Progesterone suppositories which they tell me does not show up in the bloodwork because it is absorbed directly into your uterus). I guess I am a worrier by nature. Trying to remain optimistic and hoping for the best. Besides being really tired and some minor "tenderness" in breasts, I honestly do not feel pregnant. No "morning sickness" or anything like that. It's really weird !!! Oh, one last tidbit of good news. I "graduated" from my fertility clinic yesterday !!! Being transfered to my regular OB/GYN. My first appointment is Feb 25 (more waiting). Well, I guess that's all for now. Hope everyone out there hangs in there and keeps their chin up. Amazing things can happen when you do....

Hi: I was wondering if this information would apply to IUIers also ? I am 7 weeks PG. This is my second PG (had miscarriage 2 months ago). This is the furthest along I have gotten. I have been spotting (pinkish/brownish/beige and mostly only when I wipe) for past week. Has U.S. at 6 weeks. Showed heartbeat of 116 BPM but I am still scared about the spotting. I am hoping that it is only the progesterone suppositories. Have spoken with DR office, they say all is well and not to worry. Easy for them to say !!! Not going back for another U.S. until Feb 7th. It's gonna be a long 9 days !!! Anyways, thanx for letting me vent.

I'm always amazed by the things doctors don't think are worth mentioning... Mine told me to expect bleeding like a period for 4-5 days post D&C. Instead, I got nothing at all for 5 days, followed by one large and scary gush. This sent me rushing to his office, followed by 2-3 weeks of a light trickle. All of which, apparently, was normal. So why not say in the beginning there are a range of possibilities and only X, Y, and Z should alarm you?

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the info about the symptoms thing. I was beginning to wonder if I was a total freak of nature. My doc and I think also that the spotting I had was from the progesterone suppositories irritating me. My spotting stopped after I stopped the suppositories (I also felt way less irritated down there also).

Don't forget to mention the risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation OHSS. I had a very bad case and was hospitalized for 2 weeks. My doctor actually apologized for doing that to me. I had to have my stomach drained once and my lungs drained 10 times. 3 out of 3 embryos took. We lost one, but now have beautiful 3 year old twins

First one was successful and I have a happy, healthy 2 year old. We only had 1 embryo to transfer first time and same this time. I never had any spotting bleeding the first time, I started spotting 10 days post transfer this time, I called the nurse immediately, today is day 11 still spotting getting redder and heavier today, I called the nurse again so we're testing 3 days early so I can know before the weekend, but still not quite full flow.

Что Вы думаете о своей фамилии?
Вы сроду не размышляли, как тайна родословной влияет на судьбу человека и влияет ли вообще?
Ученые долгое время пытались вычислить, почему иногда судьбы современных людей копируют судьбы наших предков, в чем таится корень одинаковых судеб в истории и насколько связанна фамилия с будущей жизнью человека. Ради того, чтобы понять причину и найти ответы на все эти вопросы, ученые проводили изучение большого количества архивов, которые сохранились в наш период.
