I am on day 11 of egg implatation with ICSI. I am experiencing slight spotting an bloatedness is this normal?

Bleeding common: Bleeding at any point after ovulation and during the first trimester of pregnancy is very non specific and does not really point to any diagnosis. Implantation technically occurs 6 days post ovulation. In our patients, 65% had bleeding early in pregnancy with a low miscarriage rate. We encourage patients not to worry about these intermittent bleeds. Bloating also common. Good luck. ...Read more

I missed my period by 2 weeks. I'm spotting (lightly),cramping,bloated & have a sharp pain on the left side. Could it be pregnancy or cyst?

I missed my period by 2 weeks. I'm spotting (lightly),cramping,bloated & have a sharp pain on the left side. Could it be pregnancy or cyst?

Potential Pregnancy: Could be either an early pregnancy loss, bleeding during the first trimester without pregnancy loss or this may be your period happening late. The most worrisome thing would be ectopic pregnancy. If your pain is 6-7/10 or higher, go to an ER. In the meantime try a home test and if it is positive see your MD to confirm intrauterine pregnancy. If you aren't taking a prenatal vitamin, start one. ...Read more

Irregular cycles: Well if you are sexually active, I would check a pregnancy test as this could be pregnancy. Otherwise it sounds like you might not have ovulated the last couple of cycles and you likely need to see a gyn to get an evaluation. But again, check a pregnancy test first. ...Read more

Just got off the Depo-Provera shot.....Spotting a lot and feel bloated!what could this be?

Depo: Depo is Progesterone only shot. Profesterone causes salt and water retention hence the bloated feeling. Similarly, Progesterone causes changes in uterine wall causing spotting. You can control 'bloated' feeling by controlling your salt intake, eating healthy and exercising. I don't know of any effective way of controlling spotting. Ask your gyn. ...Read more
