13dpo & spotting

So I just went to the bathroom and I’m spotting. Not a lot, like one drop on a panty liner, but still. And not red, more brown, but still. Someone please tell me this happened to them and everything still worked out okay.

  1. I’ve been spotting/bleeding the whole time. It’s super scary, but so far everything seems fine. My RE said that for some reason his IVF patients are more prone to bleeding. I’ll keep praying for you!


  2. I’ve never had it but I’ve been told by two REs that it’s “quite common” to spot after IVF or medicated FET as a result of all of the hormones being fed to our body that engorge the cervix and uterus. I’m hoping all is well and you don’t panic too much more. It’s scary, I know.


  3. Echoing everyone else. Definitely spend the rest of the day as horizontal as possible ๐Ÿ™‚ But yet another IVFer here, and I had spotting too (still do) and I’m almost 11 weeks. Totally normal. DON’T DO ANY LAUNDRY TODAY! ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. It happened to me at the exact same point you’re at. My guess would be it’s the little bit of blood dislodged from the implantation site. As long as it’s not a lot of bright red and you don’t have cramping you should be golden.


  5. I had some spotting in week 6. My nurse said not to worry about it as long as it didn’t get worse and I wasn’t cramping. She also said it’s normal for IVF patients to have spotting.


  6. I have no personal experience with this but as a labor and delivery nurse we see a lot of patients coming in saying they are bleeding. That dot of brown blood should be fine without cramping. That means it’s old so it could’ve been implantation blood. Bright red is what you should keep your eyes peeled for along with pain. Also, if you’ve had intercourse within the last day or two could cause that also. ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. Yes, totally happened (3 times!) and all was fine. In fact, at 13/14 dpo I had what I would have thought was my period if I didn’t know I was pregnant! And yes, I totally freaked out, but everything was fine ๐Ÿ™‚


  8. haven’t had spotting yet, but agree with everybody above – call the RE to let them know you’re testing positive at home and have spotting. and yes, they’ll probably tell you to put your feet up for a while.


  9. i’ve had some bright red, dripping blood (tmi sorry) and everything is still okay. it’s super stressful and scary but i’m sure you’ll be okay! i have talked to a lot of women and they all said they spotted in their pregnancies.
