OK not great: I've seen patients have a small amount of bleeding on day 8 of stimulation and still go on to have a normal cycle. Sometimes bleeding can come from the surface of the cervix if it has been irritated by the ultrasound. This does not affect the cycle at all. Continued period bleeding through day 8 is a sign that the estrogen level is still low and that you may not be stimulating. That's not good.
