Period after transfer

Hi all,

I started my period 7 days post transfer which has turned into a full normal period. Im now day 9 post transfer and my belly has returned to the normal size before I began to take all the fertility drugs . . I called the emergency line and they said its 99% been unsuccessful as Ive had my full normal period. Absolutely devastated, anyone else been in this position? any advice appreciated :-(

  • I'm so sorry to say I went through the exact same thing and it is the most devastating feeling. They didn't warn me this could happen and as I was still having pessaries I thought my period would not return until after all medication stopped. I still had to do the test even though I knew it was negative and my hospital were completely helpless too. 😞

    I'm so sorry you are going through this. Take time to feel sad and angry and cry as much as you need. Sending lots of love and here if you ever want to talk xx

  • Thankyou for your's devastating, I thought everything was going ok .. Very sad that it happened to you too .. My hospital said to still test on testday but in my heart I know it's not worked 😞

  • I know it's so hard to look to the future and think everything will be ok but time does heal an awful lot. I gave myself a long time to recover as it just devastated me, and I was worried about FET as thought the same thing would happen again but we got lucky and our baby is due in January. I just want you to keep some hope for the future as you don't know what will happen. Sending hugs your way xxxx

  • Thankyou daisy, I will try x

  • Hi

    I had this 8-9 days after transfer started with spotting and the full flow. But still had to endure the pessaries and go through test day I felt like that was just prolonging the agony!! I was devastated our cycle was back in April. The last couple of weeks I have struggled but feeling a little bit brighter!! So I understand how you feel!!! Xx

  • I know everyone keeps saying it will get easier .. Just 💔, will take time to get over this and move on .. Hoping you the best of luck too x

  • Hey Ditsy - I had this 2 weeks ago. Our first round of IVF with a fresh embryo transfer and it failed. I had talked myself into being pregnant because of all the side effects of the Progesterone 😟 I had my full bleed on day 12 post transfer and knew 100% it wasn't successful. I'm waiting on my follow up appointment now which will be in October as we have 7 frozen embies to go at. Did you get any frozen ones?

    Sending you lots of hugs, nothing can prepare us for this emotional rollercoaster and we have to just ride it out with hope that one day we will get our miracle 💞 Xx

  • Hi, I'm an emotional wreck but as you say hopefully time will heal all.. Unfortunately I only had 3 eggs that made it to blast and only one made it to a 5 day blast , so I have no Frosties which is even more gutting :-(

  • I am so sorry to hear this. I had a miscarriage which was heartbreaking because I truly believed it had worked. I did take time out to cry and let out all the emotions within. I also found it easier talking about it which made me feel better. At this stage I will advice that you do what you can to help you cope. As everyone has said, time is a healer but at this moment in time you will not see or feel it but you will get better. You wil realise that you are stronger than you think and you will get through this.

    Wishing you all the best darling. Make sure you take care of yourself. Lots of hugs 😘😘

  • Thankyou ... Hopefully time will help the pain go away x
