Hi there
I think i going out of my mind and just cant stop crying,I had Egg collection on wed 28th May got 5 eggs and 3 grade 2 embryos 4 cell so had them put in on Fri. Everthing was ok even after my egg clooection not too sore and embryo transfer was fine just was full of wind!!!! But since Sat day after the transfer i have had the worst period pains you could imagine and have still got them they dont even feel like they are coming and going just constant pain so i cant even go and try and relax or try and forget about things cause they are really bad. Also im having hot flushes and had beware TMI discoloured discharge (browny) yesterday and this morning. I have had these pains on my 2 other previous cycles so think the end is approaching for me. Why so early on though to have constant period pains im up the wall has anyone had any similar or same experiences PLEASE PLEASE let me know.Thanks

Hi Lindsey

I had pains after my embryo transfer and sore boobs real bad to.  Didnt have discharge but my clinic did say that after egg collection and embryo transfer you can get discharge.

Are you on pesseries because at the beginning they gave me horrendous trapped wind, so could be them, i would try and relax and ot worry, if its really bothering you maybe give the clinic a quick call.

Hi

Although you mention that it's not trapped wind, the pessaries (especially if used back door) can cause much discomfort so it's probably this which is making you so uncomfortable and causing the pain.

Also, although you were fine after EC, it could still be an after effect of this.....plus the catheter inserted during ET to flush the embies into womb can cause some pain and contractions.

The browny discharge could well be a combination of the EC and ET.

Again, the hot flushes can be a side effect of the progesterone support.....and also the HCG trigger injection before EC can stay in your body for up to 14 days and cause all manner of side effects....and both progesterone and HCG jabs can cause pregnancy like symptoms and since AF and pg symptoms are pretty much the same, there's really no way of knowing what can happen.

If you use the search facility you will find that your questions and concerns are regularly brought up so you'll find lots of previous posts discussing them.

Progesterone supplements (and natural progesterone following ovulation) can cause the following side effects/symptoms (amongst other things):

headache
breast tenderness or pain
upset stomach and/or vomiting
diarrhea and/or constipation
bloatedness
windiness
urinary problems
tiredness
muscle, joint, or bone pain
mood swings/irritability/excessive worrying
sneezing/coughing/runny nose
vaginal discharge/increase in cervical mucus
PMS like symptoms


If you're really concerned then please do call your clinic but unfortunately it sounds pretty normal to me.

Good luck
Natasha

Hi again

Just because you've had these symptoms twice before, doesn't mean that the outcome is going to be the same. I appreciate you've been through this before but I too have had quite a few treatment cycles and there honestly is no way of knowing what's happening.

You only had EC last Wednesday.....and ET on Friday....so you're only 3dp2dt.....and embies are only 5 days old....way way way too early to be throwing in the towel and thinking it's all over. Your embies have only just reached blastocyst stage and will be at the point of starting to implant, usually around 24 hours later, when embies are 6 days old (which would be tomorrow)....so please do give them a chance as it's such early day yet.

Have you tried using the search facility as you'll find that your worries and concerns are frequently raised....and here's a couple of polls on voting board....

Hi lyndsey,
Please don't give up hope so soon.
I don't want to build your hopes up too high but.........
I had the worst period pains constantly all the way through 2ww. I too was convinced that af was about rear her ugly head ALL the time. I was obsessed with knicker checking (sorry tmi). All the worrying turned out to be for nothing........I got a BFP!!!
I am now 8+3weeks pregnant so miracles can happen. I'm still having period type pain even now. Please don't give up hope. I'm sure it will be your time soon  ^hugme^

Hi,
I started getting pain on day 2. My (.)(.)'s started to ache and they grew as well  ;D I had dizzy spells and hot flushes sometimes. TMI coming up......I had very watery discharge and lot's of it too  :-[
Just try to stay calm. I know it's easier said than done but Positive Mental Attitude seemed to help me. Don't get me wrong I worried myself stupid but kept telling myself that if it's meant to be...it will happen. There's nothing we can do to help anything so try to go with the flow hunny.
What date do you test?

Hi again

Maybe you should contact your clinic to get their professional opinion.....if you're in severe pain then they may want to check it out.  Much better to get peace of mind from the medical experts, something none of us are.

Take care
Natasha

Lyndsey u sound like ur going mad there girl!!! r u ok??? u need to calm down and try keep ur mind occupied on something. I know its hard wen ur in pain, i get really bad period pains every month were i cant sleep so i know wat ur going through. Watch some telly, dvd, or read.
I had transfer yesterday and was in agony all the way from EC to this morning. It was awful getting the eggs back iin, i was still in agony and had to go the loo to let some water out, they wernt gonna do the transfer so they done a scan before hand to check ovaries were ok and thankfully they were so they went back in.
every minute of it was toruture though, it seemed to take ages for them to go back in, i couldnt sit up properly after they went back in.
I feel alot better today though, stil a nagging pain now an then but not constant like yesterday.
Ur still in the early stages yet anyway so just dont panic!! ur probably making urself worse thinking it hasnt worked and its still too early to say if it has or hasnt! LIsten to me voice of wisdom???? i will probalby sound like u in a few days, haha
Goodluck anyway luv, keep ur chin up and take it easy

Hi wondered how you were feeling.
I had my transfer on Friday just gone. Before I had it I started getting the low pulling feeling I get before I am due on and then had the same all day yesterday and then period pains yesterday afternoon and all day today. Feel very negative. I am sure I am about to start my period.
I am very lucky to already have a little girl from IVF so not quite the same, but I do understand. Why I decided to go through all this again I don't know.
I distinctly remember the 2ww with her and I felt nothing until implantation and then got horrendous period cramps and backache right up until end of 12 weeks, but I have read the other replies and hope each cycle is different. It is slightly reasurring the lady who had them from the beginning too.
Do you have the low down pulling feeling too?
I know the sweats and wind can be due to the pessaries and discharge can be from the egg collection.
Wishing all the luck in the world. I believe it is pure luck. xxxxxxxxxxxx
