Yes I have had 3 rounds of ivf and bleed within days off transfer. Phone your clinic in the morning, you may need to up your progesterone. Good luck xx

Oh im sorry, it might not be for you, but in my case after bleeding, I MC my two embryos, this was about the same time as you.

I dont want to scare you as everyone is different and every cycle different. As PP said you might need to up your progesterone, please ring your clinic as they will advise you the best.

Crossing everything for you x x x x x

So from around 10pm and all this morning no more bleeding. Maybe its implantation bleeding, I tried the clinic no answer. So you think I should still ring up. I have to do my pregnancy test on 22nd. I'm thinking if theres no more bleeding I should be ok?? X

So I went for bloods today she said my levels was 7,700. Had a bit of brown blood this morning but its stopped. I've got a scan on saturday so hopefully it will be okay but really nervous! X

Good luck - I have my fingers crossed for you.
I had this after our sixth round of IVF - thankfully the bleeding wasn’t anything but I can
remember barely daring to breathe between getting the bloods and the scans, just in case (and then having a massive, snotty cry over the sonograher when she showed me the heart flickering away).

How many weeks was you when you had your first scan? I'm a bit worried it might be too early as I only had the 5 day embryo put in on 10th December x

I had the first scan at bang on 6 weeks, which was too early really to see anything much but I was a nervous wreck. If I remember correctly the first scan just confirmed the embryo was still there, and they picked up the heart flickering on the arcing one at 7 weeks.That combined with my numbers going up kept me semi-calm. I guess I was lucky that I had a very sympathetic GP who arranged for me to be scanned weekly up to 12 weeks (I did the big snotty crying after each one though).
The baby is now a very boisterous, healthy toddler

@Ghhh How did it work out for you OP??

Ignore me, my phone missed out your updates above 🤦🏼‍♀️😬

Re: bleeding, I had an episode of heavy bleeding (very heavy, bright red blood) during pregnancy. I honestly thought that was it, but all was fine! She's nearly 6 years old now smile

Best of luck for the scan. I highly recommend private 4D scans for the later stages. They're amazing! They also give you that added reassurance on top of your scheduled NHS scans.

Keep us updated! wine(Non-Alcoholic, of course!)

So I went for the scan today they said it was too early to see anything. She could only see the pregnancy sack and yolk. The nurse said its measuring 4-5 weeks but on my calculator it says 6 weeks. But the nurse said as my embryo was implanted 9th December that 4-5 weeks would be right. So I'm not sure if anyone else has had this? I've got to go for Another scan in 10 days so I suppose I'll know then xx

Just incase anyone else is having the same went for my scan and now 7 weeks 3 days with a strong heartbeat so it's not always case to worry with some bleeding xx
