Hi everyone,

I am waiting to begin my first try at IVF. I experienced brown spotting and very light bleeding on Monday and Tuesday but that stopped (this was a couple days before I expected AF to begin). I didn't experience anything again until today (spotting only). I went in for an ultrasound today, originally hoping that this would have been my cycle day 3 since I had the light bleeding earlier this week. I am "satelliting" at a local RE's office but my main RE's RN said that I should keep my appointment for today, in case I really was starting my period.

The RE said that my lining seemed thick, as if I was only mid-way through my cycle. I ovulated 2 weeks ago so should seem further along than that.

Has anyone experienced this before? I am wondering what that very light bleeding was earlier in the week if it was not the start of my period.

Thanks for any info/experiences!

But NOT to get your hopes up...

Have you POAS? Is there a possibility you are pg?

Other than that it sounds like AF has not really started. Were your ovaries doing anything?

Good luck,

Not sure if they did b/w or what your ovaries looked like but you could have an estrogen-producing cyst. Something similar happened to me 2cycles ago
and it was a cyst. Lets hope its what Sarah h says though because that is also possible:) gl!

About the time you expect AF (sometimes a bit earlier) you can get very light brown spotting from where the embryo is attaching to the lining. If it's red blood or clots, it's probably not from implantation.
