The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 30-year-old female asked:
Possible: There could be different reasons for which you are experiencing severe cramping after an embryo transfer such as luck of sufficient progesterone, failed cycle or pregnancy. I would highly recommend to discuss it with your fertility specialist. I wish you the best of luck with the cycle.
A 18-year-old female asked:
Probably not: Spotting while taking bcp can occur especially during the first few months of starting bcp but if the spotting persists then other causes should be ruled out such a uterine pathology ( polyps, fibroids ), cervical pathology, pregnancy etc.. At time if no other causes could be found then changing to a different type of a bcp can help.
A 20-year-old female asked:
Maybe: The length of your menstrual cycle does not affect the quality of the eggs but the underlying condition that causes you to have longer cycles can at times affect the quality of the eggs. I would recommend to discuss it with your obgyn or fertility specialist.
