Hi. I had a failed icsi cycle in august. Since then I've noticed before my period arrives I do a lot of brown spotting some times up to a week before I start my period fully. Has anyone else experienced this? Before ivf i didn't have any brown spotting at all xx

Hey Karta, I have actually noticed this also although have never understood why it happens.xx

Hey lovely! I haven't noticed too much change in my cycle as such but been taking DHEA which has changed things a bit all round! Hopefully some of the others can offer some words of wisdom?! Hope you're well!!xxx

Thank you just wondering if it's normal! How's your cycle going? I'm good thanks xx

Not much to report so far, turned into an emotional wreck which I didn't get last round but hoping it's all a good thing and that the drugs are working! Poor hubby!!😂xx

Sorry can't help whether it is normal or not but I slso get this- mine started 3 years ago and I'd only been TTC naturally. Hope you get answers. X

OK thank you. Its just a bit weird and seems to go on for a good while before my period starts xx

Not specifically that but I did find my periods were different and not exactly how they were pre icsi x

Thanks yes they've def changed since our cycle xx

Update- think my previous pre period spotting was caused by my endometriosis. I had a laparoscopy which my Fertility consultant found and removed endometriosis from my phone of Douglas. I had many abnormalities with my periods- I know pre period spotting can be a sign of endometriosis.

I will let you know what happens with my cycle now the endometriosis has been treated.

It is upsetting how little information is available for women over endometriosis- and how to know what's normal and what isn't.

Hope the adoption process is going well.


Hi katya this is normal for me but I have endometriosis, hope it settles down. Hope the adoption process is going well xx
