Hi Peter :D

Had my first ET yesterday which I didn't find uncomfortable but this a.m. have had some spotting. It's not alot just a little on tissue. I rang and spoke to a nurse at my clinic and she said rest. I asked if this was normal and she said it wasn't unheard of....this didn't really help ??? I've also been feeling uncomfortable since EC and wondered is this the norm? I don't feel it's strong enough to take a pain killer, it's in my lower back and abdomen. Am I just fussing or do I have course for concern?

Thanks :) Jen

Hi Jen

I'm sure this is nothing to worry about. If you think about it, there is a lot of poking about goes on at EC and ET, so its not surprising you feel these niggles and have a bit of blood. I felt very uncomfortable, and got a positive.

I'm sure Peter can put your mind at rest

Good luck

This is perfectly OK, don't worry.

True. Any procedure can cause a small bleed and embryo transfer is no exception.

I've also been feeling uncomfortable since EC and wondered is this the norm? I don't feel it's strong enough to take a pain killer, it's in my lower back and abdomen. Am I just fussing or do I have course for concern?

No, you are fine. A little discomfort is to be expected following stimulation of your ovaries and egg collection.

Good luck!!

Peter

Thanks :) Jen
