I posted this in another area with no response...I'm hoping someone will shed some light on this for me.


Hi all,

I haven't posted in a long time and just about got through my 3rd cycle just lurking but I'm looking for your experiences.  Here's my story: I'm on prometrium and estrace to support a possible pregnancy after ET (I've been on these before for each cycle).  At 12dp2dt I had some pink when I wiped.  My first cycle I had no spotting or colored discharge at all and it was a BFN.  My second cycle, I had the tiniest spot of pink when I wiped at 12dp2dt and ended up with my first ever BFP!  This cycle, I've had days where I'm convinced I'm pregnant and days where I'm convinced I'm not but then the pink yesterday at the same time as before....I've never had any other spotting while on prometrium.


Thoughts?  Has anyone been on prometrium numerous times and had spotting sometimes but not always?

Any input is appreciated and I won't hold it against you if you're wrong giggle.gif   Thank you!

I've only been on prometrium twice.  The first time I had a bit of spotting, and I was pregnant.  The second time, recently, no spotting, no pregnancy. 


But seeing has how the first time was after a fresh transfer for me, and the second after a FET, I don't know that I could really compare the two times.


Best of luck, I hope you get a positive beta in a few days :)

I've had spotting with many of my pregnancies, around the time you state.  This time, I was certain when I saw blood that it was over.  I was 6DP5DT, and it landed up being implantation bleeding...  or just bleeding, who knows as I've seen blood almost every single day of this pregnancy so far.  I'm 9W2D.


Good luck!
