Light Spotting 6 Days After ET
Hi Doc
I had 2 early stage blastocytest transferred last Sunday. Since last night I've had light spotting on and off. Its brown and mucousy and extremely light, just little bits when I wipe. I've had nothing for the past few hours.
Should I be worried? What should I do?

thanks so much!

Dear Scared

The symptoms that you described are highly suggestive of implantation bleeding and is actually a very positive sign. An ultra sensitive blood pregnancy test can be done on day 10 post embryo transfer and should confirm a biochemical pregnancy at that stage.
