3rd Ivf+icsi bleeding just before pregnancy test

  1. Thinkingsoul

    This is my 3rd ivf+icsi. Embryos were good on day3 but on day5 didn’t reach blastocyst stage but went with the transfer. As per the clinic I had to do pregnancy test on 10th of march but I am started bleeding since yesterday not exactly like periods. I am scared to test tomorrow. I know its going to be negative but still do I have any hope of getting positive?

  2. Hello Thinkingsoul,

    Slight bleeding may indicate implantation bleeding or the start of your period. You can see some differences, implantation bleeding is more of a pinkish brownish-red color, it usually lasts hours or a couple of days and it may be accompanied by other pregnancy symptoms like fatigue, breast tenderness, or frequent urination.

    You can obtain a false negative if the hCG hormone is too low, I recommend you keep testing until you have to go back to your doctor or until you get your period.

    Good luck!
