Ob-Gyn doctor helps: After an embryo transfer, or an artificial insemination, a couple hopes to relax and go about their normal lives, without thinking about eggs, sperm, or embryos... until a pregnancy test about 3 weeks later. What will be will be. That said, cramping and bleeding (the question is vague and does not mention the location of symptoms), if pelvic or abdominal, should be discussed with their doctor now.

Several things: Bleeding post transfer can be caused by a friable, or cervix thats bleed easy, a small bleed behind the gestational sac, following intercourse, the loss of a twin and/or signs of an early miscarriage and a difficult et. If you have any bleeding, contact your doctor immediately. And remember, it may not be a bad sign. Probably would consider starting Progesterone to help quiet the uterus. Good luck.

Possibly: Although up to 23% of women can bleed in early pregnancy, bleeding 11 days after embryo transfer may indicate that the transfer was not successul and you are not pregnant and/or an early sign of a miscarriage or what is called a biochemical pregnancy. You should get a blood HCG level to help determine what is going on. Failed implantation and/or miscarriages are more common as women get older.

Check with your REI: Are your quantitative hCG levels rising appropriately? When is your first ultrasound scheduled?
