Many factors are working together to try to get them to implant, and these factors are stronger than you would think. I wouldn't worry about the cramps, etc. Just try to keep calm, breathe deeply, follow your doctor's instructions, and believe! ...Read more

What day after IVF transfer is there bleeding and cramping?

What day after IVF transfer is there bleeding and cramping?

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

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

My AMH is 7.12 is that indicates good ovarian reserve for IVF ?

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
