I had my (Day 5 blastocyst) embryo transfer on 11/17.
The doctor on call said I should not get a period while on progesterone and should not have any bleeding.
My transfer went smoothly and no spotting afterwards.
After a successful embryo transfer, would a person feel any different? I know it is still very early.
I feel the same other than more tired (probably the progesterone).
Sometimes I feel mild cramps and ‘stretching’ but they did poke around in there so…
Thank you for any advice. Have a great weekend! 🙂

I felt exactly the same as usual after my successful transfer. I had actually planned to test the day of my beta, after the draw but before I got the phone call, but changed my mind because I wanted to feel happy, like I could be ‘maybe pregnant’ for a few hours more. I was shocked when it was positive! Best of luck to you!

The great thing about a 5day transfer is that the tww is shortened and you can start to test earlier and get positives a little earlier! Mine is 12/2 and I plan on testing 5 -6 days after! Your symptoms so far sound promising!! Best of luck and FX to you!! 😉
I had a successful 3dt in 2013 and felt zero twinges, cramps, spotting/bleeding, nausea, fatigue, etc. I had zero pregnancy symptoms (for my whole pregnancy!) except my boobs were sore but that is a side effect of the progesterone so I didn’t take it too seriously. I started getting very faint positives at 7dp3dt which got increasingly darker each day.

Unfortunately there’s no way to know except for taking a pregnancy test. I didn’t really have symptoms until 8 weeks when the nausea kicked in.

I had major acne, swollen boobs, and cramping about 5 days after my 5 day transfer and now I’m nearly 6 weeks along! The acne is mostly resolved but my boobs are still huge (I regret every time I ever wished for bigger boobs) and still get on and off cramping most days. Its super annoying that those can all be side effects of the progesterone in oil shots too though so the only way to really know is to POAS after you are sure any HCG trigger is out of your system. Good luck!!

Thank you ladies for sharing your experiences. 🙂
Today is the start of 4 days past transfer. I feel the exact same other than a glow on my skin but I had that last time I took progesterone too. Maybe estrogen level? That and a bad rash on my inner legs from the progesterone.
My retrieval was in August, so for the FET the only meds are estrogen and progesterone, no HCG trigger or other injectable meds.
I guess I’ll just wait it out… My DH has been very supportive and helpful and told me not to worry that we’ll continue to try. We have 3 more frozen embryos.
Have a great day, ladies! 🙂
