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.

Pregnancy test: You will know if the ivf has failed if the pregnancy test your doctor has ordered is negative. You need to wait until then. It is still possible to be pregnant after bleeding and cramping. ...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 thats bleed easy, a small bleed behind the gestational sac, following intercourse, the loss of a twin and/or signs of an early miscarriage. 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. ...Read more

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

Cramps after embryo transfer can lead to positive pregnancy or it is the symptom of Ivf failure?

Cramps after embryo transfer can lead to positive pregnancy or it is the symptom of Ivf failure?

Be optimistic: It is neither one, it is an "occupational hazard;" in other words it happens all the time. it doe snot predict at all whether the ET was successful. Think positive, please follow all your doctor's instructions, and good luck with your pregnancy test. ...Read more

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

8 days post embryo transfer spotting cramping is it ok to walk around?

Yes: Contrary to what many people believe, there is no need for bed rest after embryo transfer. Walking is perfectly fine after the embryo transfer procedure, even if you are spotting/cramping. Though your symptoms don't sound good, it's still possible you are pregnant. Good luck! ...Read more
