Hi all this isn't very pleasant, but I wonder if anyone on here has had this.

We had failed IVF in February. I had the Gonapeptyl injection in December ready for stims in January. December I had a bleed as expected, then obviously had a "period" when the transfer failed. Since then I've had no periods or anything. Then the last two weeks I've had lots of ewcm all every few hours really, everyday.

I was told it could take two or 3 months for the Gonapeptyl to be out of my system and my periods to come back so I don't know if this is my body and hormones getting back into some sort of rhythm. I've even taken many pregnancy tests just to rule it out.

So has anyone had an abundance of this mucus for a longish time and it turned out to be close to getting your first period after ivf? I have Endo and the pain is real so I'd like to be prepared. Thanks for letting me ramble....

Sorry, I haven't been in this situation so no experience to share. But you said you had the injection in December so it's been over 3 months. If things don't get back to normal soon you may want to call or email your doctor.

If you keep getting ewcm, it sounds a bit like your body is gearing up to ovulate but for some reason doesn't quite get there and so keeps producing more ewcm ? But I'm not a doctor. Did you take opk's to see what it says, or would the gonapeptyl give nonsensical results regardless ?

But if you don't get a period by may I think you really need to get in touch with your clinic. They may be able to do some bloodwork or other tests to figure out what's going on.

Sorry you're going through that, uncertainty is the worst !

The Gonapeptyl was so they could control my ovaries etc, and I should have had a period 2 months after the failed cycles bleed. So I've no idea what's going on now. I'm going to ring them soon but doubt they'll do much at the moment with the covid situation as it is.

Following on, I've had some ovulation sticks delivered and they're blazing positive (which I expected really because of all the mucus), but two weeks seems a long time. I assume they'd have been positive the whole time I've had the mucus....

I don't know, my clinic is shut at the moment but I'll see how the sticks look for a few days.

Take a pregnancy test to rule it out.
