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

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

Several reasons: The bleeding could be due to several different possibilities.

What causes progesterone to drop few days after embryo transfer?

What causes progesterone to drop few days after embryo transfer?

No cause: There's no reason for Progesterone to drop following et, but levels definitely will fluctuate. As long as they are within a (pretty wide) range, they are okay. In most et cycles, supplemental Progesterone is given - you don't say in yours. The dosing is adjusted to keep the levels in range. 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 am at my 7 days after embryo transfer and see no signs of pregnancy - is this normal?

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

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

If the Hcg titre is 78.87, measured 12 days after embryo transfer of 2 embryos, 3day post fertilisation, both are8 cells. Is this level good or low?

Very early: It is good that you have a positive pregnancy test. Not many other conclusions can be made form this limited information. Usually the doctors will check the BHCG over a few days to establish a normally rising trend. Eventually ultrasound will be done to verify a normal pregnancy Read more
