Ghost - spotting on BCP before FET

Post by leorira11 » Tue Sep 20, 2011 12:17 pm

Ghost -

I'm currently taking BCP to control my unpredictable cycles in anticipation for my FET next month. (I've never had a regular cycle and was diagnosed with anovulatory PCO - but our reasons for IVF is severe male factor). I started the pack of pills on the first day of my period. Today is cycle day 8 and I'm having some spotting. I'm scheduled for pipelle endo biopsies on CD10 and CD21 (not because I need the biopsy but because I'm part of a study to see if it helps increase implantation rates) as well as a HSG on CD14.

Could this spotting be a problem? I will mention to my RE when I go in for the biopsy on Thursday morning.

Thanks!

I doubt it's a problem for your next cycle but it's all up to your RE. You are correct to tell him everything.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.

Hi Leorira,

I had something similar before my cycle and the RE gave me some estrogen and progesterone to monitor that but that was for my fresh cycle.
Good luck with everything.

I always had spotting on bcp. I also had cramping too. My RE said it was a common reaction. It never affected my cycles. However, I would ask the RE just to be sure.

I'm glad you brought this up. I posted a question about it on our fall board. I've been spotting and bleeding (a full period) since stopping the bcp and starting estrogen.
