Early period after cancelled IVF cycle
Posted 06 August 2012 - 06:24 PM
For our first shot at IVF I called in my CD1 and was told to come in on CD3 - everything looked good and I was put on BCP for just under two weeks - so for most of the BCP I had my period.
Then once I stopped BCP, I began stimming and about 3 days in my period came again - lasted until about CD8 of stims. On CD11 I was cancelled due to a drop in estrogen.
That was 5 days ago...which would put me at about CD13-CD16!?!?
The last two days I had brown to pink spotting and I figured it was probably from ovulating of the 20+ follies that I had on either side.
Yesterday and today DH and got to baby making the old fashioned way and I am now bleeding bright red - lots.
I'm wondering if this is a period??? It seems awfully early...
A bit more info is that I have PCOS - have been on met for about 6 months now and my period dropped from being 30-40 days apart to a perfect 28 day cycle this past time.
Does anyone have any experience with an early period after a cancelled IVF cycle?
