Ovarian Cramping During Ivf Cycle
The night after IVF ET, fresh transfer, I had strong cramps and ovarian pain for one hour. It is possible to have expelled the two embryos?
Unlikely: What a stressful time and source of worry! I would probably have called my fertility specialist if I were you, but expelling the embryos is unlikely. Many factors are working together to try to get them to implant, and these factors are stronger than you would think.

Depends: Usually bleeding will start 14-5 days after your retrieval. If you have a day 3 transfer that is 11-12 days later or 9-10 days after a day 5 blastocyst transfer. If you are taking Progesterone supplementation it may supress bleeding even if you are not pregnant. The period will usually start 1-2 days after stopping progesterone. ...Read more

R sided hemm. Ovarian cyst 46.6mmx41.9x45.9 volume 46.9ml. history endoand decreased ov reserve n/v, pain how long does it take to absorb?Waiting to do ivf
It may not absorb: If it is truly a hemorrhagic cyst it should resolve in 4-6 weeks if not sooner. If it is an endometrioma, it may not resolve on its own and may require surgery to improve your ivf outcome. I recommend you talk to your reproductive endocrinologist about strategy here. You don't want to lose time if you have diminished ovarian reserve. ...Read more
Sort of: AMH is produced by the cells around the early eggs. The number you want is above 1. You clearly have that. However anytime the AMH is above 4 it may indicate the patient has an issue called: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Women with PCOS may have a lot of eggs but sometimes have issues releasing those eggs and in IVF sometimes have poor outcomes (no success). Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
