Bleeding in early pregnancy after ivf

Has anyone experienced bleeding and everything been ok? Last week at 5+3 I passed blood, enough to fill a pad. I had a blood test 48hrs apart and my blood had doubled. I am taking Vaginal suppositories which I hoped had been the cause (irritating my cervix) so I started putting them in the other hole for a few days and the bleeding subsided. Yesterday at 6+1 I had another larger bleed, enough to soak 2 pads. I went to the epu and they tested my blood again and it has risen however I have been having smaller light bleeds ever since. They won’t scan me until 7 weeks. I had changed back to taking the suppositories vaginally for a couple of days before the bleeding so I am really hoping it could be the problem again but I’m really starting to worry it isn’t. Is it possible to be miscarrying but still have good hcg levels and feeling sick as a dog? Any advice would be much appreciated.

According to two nurses at my clinic, bleeding in early pregnancy is more common with ivf than non-ivf pregnancies.

It's just a waiting game, I'm afraid. The doubling numbers or heartbeat on a scan are the best indications of viability in the earlier stages...

Hi, just to put your mind at rest I had spotting at 5+ weeks and then a major bleed at 7 weeks. It lasted 5 days and was heavy but no clots. I'm currently 30 weeks pregnant and baby is healthy x

Thank you very much for your responses. I have been bleeding heavily on and off since I posted this and started passing what looked like tissue. Because of the obvious concern they decided to scan me today. They couldn’t see a source for the bleeding however they did discover 2 heart beats! Very early days but all being well I’m having twins!!! 😃
