Why do I have discharge and cramps after IVF?

I had an IVF 5 day blastocyst transfer on the 31st of march and everything was going well. I tested on the 9th of April and it was positive. On the 14th I got a bit of bleeding and a scar tissue fell out. I tested again and it was still positive. I went to a and e and was told that as it was still early days it was not possible to see it on the U/S. This was on saturday. they have taken a blood test and found out that my level was 448miu at 3 weeks and 1 day. I am still producing brown discharge and a little cramp here and there. i am not sure what this is.

welcome to HCM

Congrats as your blood test suggests you are pregnant.

As there is a brown discharge - you need to take a lot of rest and your consultant will give you progesterone support in the form of injections which will help you tide over this problem

A scan a 6 + weeks will confirm the pregnancy ring
7+ weeks the fetal heart will be seen

your doctor will help you

all the best
