Hello -
I am on my first IVF cycle (after 2 failed IUIs) and am getting quite worried.
I'm on the long protocol - I've had 3 weeks of BCPs, 2 weeks of Buserelin at 0.5 and 2 days of Menopur at 300iu with reduced dose of Buserelin at 0.2.
My worry is that I am still losing a lot of blood - enough to have to use a tampon. It is not really red like proper menstrual blood - more dark brown - but it is quite heavy.
Is this normal during stimming?
The doctor scanned me to make sure downregging had worked and everything seemed ok which is why we started stimming.
I'm bothered about not being able to get hold of my clinic because it's Bank Holiday w/end.
Hope you can help.
Many thanks
Molly.

Hi molly,
i did my first injection today and am still bleeding - not a lot but a little.  i had a scan day 6 of bleeding and again day 8 and the dr could see by the scan that there was still some blood to come but advised me to start stabbing today (day 9).  this is my longest period ever!!  My clinic monitor all their patients super closely and tailor drugs to the individual, so i'm sure it's fine for you.  good luck!
