Before I start I should give a warning it might contain TMI!
So after wondering that I had no symptoms (good or bad) on Saturday and whether I could test earlier, I ended up bleeding on the Sunday. It seemed to happen after the utrogestan pessaries but continued during the day. A light bright red flow (TMI alert) but quite watery and by evening became pinkish and then stopped. Happy days- I thought it might just be implantation bleeding.
However I had high body temperature and all the aches and pains usually associated with my period. Stomach cramps resolved.
But today (Monday) I started bleeding again since about 9am... It's been steadier and heavier and persistent- but mostly when I wipe it- doesn't seem to transfer into sanitary towel as much as you would imagine considering the flow!. I phoned clinic- nurse said to continue as normal- if gets very heavy/period like or pains then contact again.
I know there isn't much I can do- nor can anyone definitively tell me if it's ok or not.
But about midday I noticed it was 'clotting' more, and then I had this strange thick white clots- almost like glue. I thought it might be from the pessaries but this was hours after I took the meds and haven't had it the other times. I just read you can also get it during implantation stage.
So I'm at a loss! I know I should rest and not panic- a lot of it seems like implantation signs! Except for the steady bleeding in between. I've always been prone to irregular vaginal bleeding (not always menstrual) so I'm hoping this is a combo of both.
Any advice or similar stories would be appreciated. I always thought this IVF cycle was too good to be true- but Saturday I actually finally thought I was being silly and should trust in the process ! Just as I accepted it, this happened 😞
