Spotting and pains 5dp5dt


Yesterday which was 5 days past a 5 day transfer of 2 early blasts, I started spotting.

So far it's only been a bit brown/ red and only when I wipe. But this is exactly what happened last time, so I'm sure I'm out for this round. I have to wait until Friday to test.

The only difference between this time and last is that I have bad period pains. Iv had them on and off for about 3 days now. I normally only get pains on the first day of my natural periods so this is weird for me.

Anyone else had this?

Thanks x

Hi sharpy. It's so hard with symptoms but because your at 5dp this could be implantation bleed? If it's only spotting then it's more likely! Wait till your date and test then. Wishing you all the best and keep us updated x❤️🤞🏻🍀


Thanks for your reply.

Last time I had a day 2 transfer and started spotting 9 days after transfer (so 11 days after collection)

This time it would be 5 days after transfer (so 10 days after collection)

By my twisted logic, it's roughly the same thing both times.

It's just so disappointing that after so much effort it only takes a few days for your body to decide it's not doing it! 👎🏼


I know its hard sharpy. Keep your mind occupied (which I struggle with too). This waiting game is horrid. Keep to your otd and fingers crossed your bleed stops. 🍀❤️🤞🏻
