It is normal to have spotting and cramps days after embryo transfer?

It is normal to have spotting and cramps days after embryo transfer?

It depends: If the transfer was difficult, a tenaculum needed, or if there was a wide ectropion of the cervix bleeding could have been stirred up with the procedure. Sometimes we see bleeding/ spotting with vaginal Progesterone use. The cramping may be due to other causes such as ovarian enlargement and not of uterine etiology. I would recommed calling your ivf program to discuss with them. ...Read more

Embryo Transfer (Definition)

Embryo transfer (also et, set. Fet, etc) refers to placing one or more human embryo (s) (multi-cell or blastocyst) into the uterus of a woman trying to become pregnant. Et is the final step in an ivf cycle, and is done in some other circumstances as well. It is extremely safe, mostly comfortable, and usually not technically difficult. Experts agree on its importance, but ...Read more

After embryo transfer, cramping and bleeding, am I pregnant?

After embryo transfer, cramping and bleeding, am I pregnant?

Maybe: Bleeding 2 weeks post transfer can be caused by a friable, or cervix that's bleed easy, a small bleed behind the gestational sac, following intercourse, the loss of a twin and/or signs of an early miscarriage.

You could be. ..: I recommend discussing any symptoms you have, like cramping, with your ivf clinic. At 13 days post-transfer, the HCG trigger shot you took before your egg retrieval should be out of your system. Talk to your clinic to arrange a blood pregnancy test. Best wishes. ...Read more

Four days after embryo transfer the estrogen level is 950. Is this normal?

Four days after embryo transfer the estrogen level is 950. Is this normal?

Not sure: Generally, nine days after an embryo transfer, you draw your blood for a HCG level. Most clinics do not measure estrogen. If the results are low, it is generally indicative that you may not be pregnant. At our clinic, even if the levels are low, we repeat them in 3-4 days, "just to be sure". Sometimes, but not often, low e2 or HCG levels can result in a good pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

I had a orgasm 4 days after embryo transfer could that have caused me not to conceive? I'm at day 6 now and I'm stressing out. Orgasms wasn't intercoar

No: Many of the things that we ask women not to do or to do after embryo transfer such as restrain from intercourse or bed rest in reality don't have enough scientific evidence to support them. Implantation is a very solid process and it is very unlikely that it will be interrupted by an orgasm. Please don't worry and wait for the pregnancy test. The result of that tests will depends on other factors. ...Read more
