I had massive bleeding in week 6 with fresh red blood and many many large clots discharged and before and after that bleeding throughout my trimester 1 and into my early trimester 2. Everything still went ok so don’t think too much. Worrying only scares the shit out of you but doesn’t help stop the bleed. If it helps, just pray. Hope everything goes smoothly for you.

Hi all! Checking to ask if any ivf are delayed due to the latest updates today?
Hi which stage are u at now and with which hospital? I started my fresh cycle with pte Doctor. Since started have to continue for retrieval.

I was still thinking of going ahead with the transfer until the new announcement. Hence likely will hold off FET till situation gets better

Hi, I think the main factor is that he only uses gonal f and pure LH (forget the name of it), which I think I don’t have good results.First round under KKH, i was under 450 gonal f, 6 eggs with only 1 d2 grade 3 embryo
Hi I just did a cycle with Roland again and did not use gonal F at all. At first was clomid and menopur for stim and a drug which starts with O for suppression.

Did u ask how he will do differently for next round if u continue with him?

Hi,

Anyone experienced administrating trigger shot 1 hour earlier than instructed? Is it ok?

Thanks in advanced...
not sure if it is ok coz the nurse advice me to be on time because trigger shot matures the eggs and it can float free from about 34 hours after hCG, giving a four-hour window for egg retrieval, which is scheduled 36 hours after the hCG injection..

if its earlier the eggs might go out from the follicles naturally...

i been reading so many of you ladies are getting Gonal-F.. and growing so many follicles.. it made me wonder why is it different from mine..

this is my first, my cycle seems to be super short.. i was given oral meds Letrozole n folic acid.. scan.. then follow by 3 of Orgalutran jabs.. then scan.. then Puregon 900.. 2 times jab of 450.. and addition 2 of Orgalutran jabs...scan.. And finally the trigger shot Ovidrel 250.. on day 9.. then my day 11 i had my egg retrieval.. I only had 2 follicles grown, 2 eggs retrieved, and now waiting for transfer day, they didn’t call me to tell me if my eggs ferterlize, just call me for the timing to come..

I am hopeful, please pray for me.. ♥

It is just so tough at this point

I have dark brown/ brown and at time dark red spotting almost every hour now. I also see little bit of stringy red thing coming out every now and then.

Had red, brown, pink bleeding early week 5, then heavy red bleeding with clot end of week 5, then spotting week 6...stopped a day or two, now again spotting daily. Im not sure if its considered spotting since it is there everytime...

Got 5 jabs, on the max support meds, seen the doctor 4 times since week 5 and scanned..feel so hopeless seeing blood like spotting everyday now

I have yet to start my ivf. Some long story there.. Was diagnosed with high tsh at nuh and was put on 4 months medication, and 1 month into my medication my repeat blood test was put on hold due to covid but nuh didn't advise me to stop medication for now and I continued for another 2 months. Decided to go back to kkh 2 months later and did my repeat tsh and realised my tsh dropped way too low to not even 1. Then now I have to continue medication to bring my tsh up again, only can start ivf until my tsh is back to at least 2 I think.
Supposed to go back to kkh end April for repeat tsh test but with the situation now not sure if can I still proceed, will call them again nearer to date.

Trust me, I have been there done that. Hugs. It will not be easy because you never know what is going on inside. I saw in the other forum, you are having twins? And its a subchorionic haematoma? I went through the same thing. If it helps in reassuring you (although I don’t think it does much, I bled from week 4 to week 14). All 50 shades of red/pink/brown. I was on 2 jabs per week, max pessaries, oral, as much progesterone I could get. Gynae told me progesterone will help but will only help so much. The clot has to bleed out or self absorb then it will stop.

Hang in there, have faith in your babies. Hugs.

Oh ur cycle sounds unfamiliar to me. 900 puregon 1 shot? Is that too high a dosage? Which hosp are u with?

Honestly the TSH med can bring it down quite fast...i took when my levels were at 2.8. Took it for a month and then stopped it myself but didnt do a blood test.

Almost 4 months later, did a blood test before my FET to check on TSH and it was 1.9.

Yup twins and it is subchorionic hematoma. It was seen as 2 cm in week 6 (as big or bigger than both the sacs) but this week, the babies looked bigger and doctor said the blood clot got smaller. It happens to be on top of both the water bags.

Did a scan twice in week 5, twice in week 6 and once in week 7. Honestly not sure if I still wanna go in again as my next appointment is only on week 9 :(
But with quite heavy brown spotting off and on, might just go in again. Had 5 jabs as of now, last one this Monday. I asked the doctor if there is a possibility the clot will bleed out and he said no. So i got more worried wondering where this new spotting is from.

Oh 450 a day, then it's ok.. my dosage was also very high for my 3rd fresh cycle at nuh...

I think not many calculate the total dosage for the cycle, cos some will need more days while some lesser

But anyway ur stimulation only 3 days?

Yea.. But doctor from nuh didn't share this and didn't advise me to stop after a month or two, so I just continue not knowing the dosage is quite high :( I feel there's abit of negligence on the doctor's end..

It’s quite common for twin preg to have spotting. Some spot throughout first trimester. Bed rest is important. Besides jab u can check with doctor if there is a need to increase support Med dosage. Take care.

Maybe check with your doc again? I googled a lot on other forums to know that if it is a SCH it will stop (most of the time) eventually, just depending on size of blood clot because it usually bleeds out or self absorbs. If it helps, get a second opinion. That was what I did because my first gynae could not give me a satisfactory explanation why I was continually bleeding. Found one who specialises in early pregnancy bleeding.

I continued spotting even after my clot was no longer seen on the ultrasound to which my gyane said could be the irritation to cervix by the pessaries.

Yup gonna drop by again tomm...hopefully to get a jab again as well. Currently seeing THH since he is quite well know with IVF pregnancies

Did my IVF in JB, cant continue with the same clinic due to COVID

Another gynae i was seeing previously in Mt E has also stopped seeing patients now due to covid
 
Scanned again today....one baby is now not so visible :( so the spotting could be due to that...

Will scan again in a week to see the status...quite sad since both heartbeats were strong last week

One thing I never considered before though is we transferred 2 PGS tested embryos - 1 euploid and 1 was very low mosaic on karyotype 16. I had my reservations with it then but the doctor assured low mosaic is perfectly alright to be transferred. I am now wondering if the second baby is really not visible now, could that be the main issue

I did not spot till 5 weeks but have been spotting ever since till now (week 7)

It could be implantation spotting in your case?

dr mentioned it was just a "good grade", and they wanted it to grow further for an excellent grade before they can freeze it. felt lost after embryologist called 2 days after to update but it didnt make. i guessed ill redo all over again if my fresh fails.

Dont worry.. your spotting could still be from the abrasions of the egg retrieval or even implantation coz your beta date is nearing...

Stay positive and thankful.. we all have come this far.. just chill and wait for the Beta day..

hugs!!! ♥♥♥

Hmm... I am wondering why they did not freeze the other 3 since they are blastocysts already, which is the usual practice. Then again, your doctor probably has made the most suitable judgement call for you. Don’t stress.

I spotted 6 days before my blood test and into my trimester 2. Stay calm and have faith.

so happy for u, u are in ur 2nd trim, and after reading u spotted 6 days before ur blood test it gave me some reassurance.

hope we all make it thru all the way, baby dust to all :)

But as with any spotting. Call kkh or just walk in and see if they can give you a jab. Tell them you did ivf, waiting for blood test and you are spotting. Hope this helps!

hi
i also did my ivy in Jb and could not go there
can u tell me which doc r u currently seeing
 
How is he currently in Alpha? Saw reviews he wasn't ideal after moving to pte.
I find him good :) I mean I have been to 3 gynaes including him and somehow he has been the most courteous of all. Even my husband finds him very gentle and caring. If all goes well and I need to give birth in Sg, I will opt for him. Of course I would prefer to be back in my hometown though since my mom is there to help take care of me

U can try dr SF Loh. He manages my pregnancy very well even to the last stage when I have complication and had to deliver early.
Sometimes bleeding cannot be explained and u just have to wait it out. Dr can give proluton jabs (usually twice a week) and up your support medication. Try to rest more.
