Symptoms after embryo transfer 8th day

  1. avatar

    Hello, I had a 5 day blastocyst transfer. I’ve been testing every day even though I know I shouldn’t every time it’s a negative. Today is day 8 post transfer. I tested early this morning at 1 am and still negative. I stayed home today from work because I’ve had a migraine for two days now.- I do have a history of migraines. But what I’m confused about and I haven’t read that others have the same symptoms is cramping. I’ve had cramping on and off ever since the day of transfer but its more today- day 8 than any other day. If I had a transfer on May 31st when should I be getting my period. Monday the 12th the day of my blood pregnancy test? I keep reading that if it was a 5 day transfer that I should have tested positive already because they implant faster. I honestly have no clue… help I’m desperate for some answers. 🙂 thank you,

    Dear Scarlette5,

    Day 8 post a blastocyst embryo transfer is still a little bit too early for hCG levels to be detectable by a pregnancy test. There are still chances that you are pregnant but the test is still unable to show a positive result. My advice is that you take another one on day 10, preferably a blood test (they’re more accurate).

    On the other hand, there is also the possibility that the symptoms you’ve described (migraine, cramping, etc.) are caused by either the medications you’ve been taking for IVF or your next period. They’re normal symptoms, so there’s nothing to worry about in any case. Also, it is true that, if it was a blastocyst embryo transfer, you can take a pregnancy test earlier.

    I hope I have been able to help.

    Best of luck!

    Hey ladies, just to let you know, I had no symptoms after embryo transfer but still got pregnant and now my baby is 6 months old… Just don’t become obsessed with feeling symptoms or anything, just let time do its thing and see what happens… Becoming obsessed add stress to a situation that requires happiness and relax…
