Hello all! I just had my first egg retrieval on 10/6… I am doing a FET. I started spotting yesterday and today it is a bit heavier but nothing crazy. Should this be considered my period?! They usually are pretty light and only last about 4 days. I do have more cramps and back pain which I usually don’t. But everything I’ve read states the first period after retrieval is way heavier and painful….

for what it’s worth, mine (ive done 3 ERs) have all just been normal, not extra heavy. I would guess this is your period and it’s getting off to a slow start. The timing is about right – they said to expect a period in 7-14 days.

mine was heavier than usual, and it was 8 days after ER. Also, my next cycle after that was anovulatory (no temp shift) for the first time ever.

did you do a fresh transfer? or are you expecting to get your period?
