I have done IVF and I'm in day 12 after embryo transfer. I 'm bleeding and pains comes and goes. How can I know the embryo is falling out? Thank u

I have done IVF and I'm in day 12 after embryo transfer. I 'm bleeding and pains comes and goes. How can I know the embryo is falling out? Thank u

Always a possibility: Honestly, by day 12 after et, you should have already done a pregnancy test and know whether ivf was successful or not. If the test was positive, that is a good sign and sometimes the bleeding is do to losing a twin or a tear in a small cervical or uterine vessel. Unfortunately, these are less likely and ivf probably did not work. The pg test is the key. Good luck and I hope this helps. ...Read more
