Passing blood clots 6 hrs after embryo transfer

  1. MrsY

    Hi Doctor,

    I had my embryo transfer done today (2 healthy embryos). This evening (only 6 hrs after embryo transfer) I started bleeding heavily as though I was having my period. After 30 mins later, I passed a large blood clot (size of quarter of my palm). Blood clot was red, bleeding was red. I had mild abdominal pain.

    what does this mean? Did I lose my embryos already?

  2. Dear mrsy,

    If it occurred just once, in principle, there is no reason to be concerned and it can be considered a normal symptom. However, if you pass several blood clots, my advice is that you ask your doctor about it.

    You can learn more about the most typical symptoms after ET here: Common symptoms after embryo transfer.

    I hope I have been able to help,
