My wife and I just went through our first IVF cycle. Two embryos were implanted on January 22. My wife was due to get her period on Saturday. She said she got her normal flow yesterday afternoon. So she figures she is not pregnant. Today I received a call from our fertility clinic to check in on us. I told them that my wife got her period. The Clinic told me that there is still a chance that we could be pregnant because two embryos were implanted. Told me that the period flow could be the flushing out of one embryos and that there is a chance that the other one is did attach. They said that this is has happened before with two embryos transferred.

Has this happened to anyone? Is this a possibility or should we not get our hopes up again?

I didn't have normal flow but did have some bleeding when we lost our second embryo. Luckily the first one held on tight and is still hanging in there. Good luck to you and your wife!!
