6 doctors agree

In brief: 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.

In brief: Ask your doctor

Spotting could be implantation or fetal loss.
....Thye will probably do a sonogram and check blood.
