Ivf success with cramps?

Hi ladies,

I'm on my 7th day post 3d transfer. (2 embies )

I have cramps and back pain (like period pain) it started the following day of the transfer. It was strong but now it comes and goes but not really strong.

Did anyone experience this?

Ps no bleeding ( neither brown nor pink)

Thank you in advance

Hiya

My last cycle experienced something of the same and it was a BFP.

This cycle which was a fet not really had much in fact probably nothing and just my imagination no bleeding or spotting and we are to test shortly did an an early test 6dp5dt 2 x perfect blasts but it was a BFN other holding out much hope but who knows atm suffering a back ache which has been rather contact on this run someday feel nothing don't know if it's meds playing around but with stuff like this you just never know.

Wishing you the best x

Hiya Sassa1234

Im currently on 9dp3dt and I've have period pains all the way through from EC. The period pains started to die off yesterday afternoon and now I've not had any and I tounch wood that they don't come back. I've had no spotting/bleeding so I'm a little worried that I've not had an implantation bleed, but then again not everyone gets it. So all I can remember is that if you were to catch naturally then you wouldn't have any symptoms so all we can do is hope and pray that our little embies have stuck 🤞🙏 what day are you due to test? Xxx

It's so difficult isn't it!! I've got 3 friends who have had ivf! 2 caught first time and the other was 2 time and got twins, all of them got spotting so in a way it's frustrating me because I'm trying to follow suit with them, bugbjave to keep remembering that we are all completely different, the only thing I have now is sore boobs and loads of gas lol.

Clinic gave me 9/2 to test which will be day 13 so I think I'm just going to stick to that date as I've got it booked of work 🙏🤞 xxx

Hello. I've had near on constant cramps and period type pain. I also get terribly bloated and have been suffering with trapped wind 😊

I have no idea if this is good or bad coz there seems to be mixed opinion. And I know the hormones can do all this as well.

I only have 2 more sleeps until I can test so just hoping for the best.

Take care and keep positive x

Its really hard to know if it's period pain or an early pregnancy symptom but that does sound like me 😊 I was convinced last month that my period was coming (strong lower back pain and cramps) and I went crazy researching google lol But there was nothing to take the anxiety away. However, after about two (mentally) agonising days the cramping settled to a mild stabbing sensation and I realised it might be the embie hatching itself into my uterus and my word.. it was!! As long as you're not bleeding clear blood, you have to hang on and wait - easier said than done but I think we've all been there!!! Sending lots of BD your way xoxo

Hi there. This is a good sign! I had cramps and period-type pain that would come and go all the way through the 2ww and for about the first 9 weeks of pregnancy. I also had an implantation bleed on day 11 of the 2ww just before I went to bed and fully expected it to be all over by the morning, but it was fine and we are now 12 weeks pregnant. Eventually I found the period-type pain comforting and even panicked when it stopped! Wishing you lots of luck for a BFP. Xx

Thanks monkak,

Im 7dp3dt. Jus pain but no implantation bleeding.

Do u think it's early for bleeding?

Not everyone gets implantation bleeding, even with a BFP, but I had mine on day 11, so from my experience it is too early, yes, but every pregnancy is different. I would say definitely don't worry about not bleeding, even later on, and the pain is a good sign. I know it's hard but try not to over analyse - everything is looking good at the moment. Good luck!

Hello Sassa! Take it easy, it's a common thing as far as i understand. I experienced the same and I was sure I failed but thanks god I didn't. Just calm down and think positive. Don't lose hope because things may change easily. Praying for you!!!xxx
