    Default Spotting and 1st BETA not until end of the week.

    Can someone pls help... Ive been spotting today, noticed a light pink/brown this morning and it's still showing.

    I'm 8dpt with my 1st beta scheduled end of the week (sat).

    Could this be implantation bleeding or breakthrough bleeding or AF starting.

    I'm on prog pessaries (3) a day and thought this would make sure AF wouldn't arrive.

    I'm so worried that this cycle isn't going to work now... I normally spot before AF and this could be it. I feel a little crampy too.

    Has anyone had slight spotting and ended up with a + ?? do you think this could be implantation bleeding? I've been excessively tired of late but don't want to look into it too much...

    Any info would be great!

    Mrs A it could be any of the above.....not much help.

    i have had AF turn up 6-8days after transfer (2 day embie) and the FS said that if the embie was going to stick it would have.....I only tried the pessaries once and they did hold off AF but I also had my BFP so I dont know if the pessaries delayed AF at all.

    Ive never had implantation bleeding so I cant really help there!

    But goodluck.

    Hi Mrs A,

    From what you have described it could be implantation bleeding but it could also be irritation from the pessaries...a few ladies here get that. IVF pregnancies are also far more prone to spotting and it is not a greater sign of problems. Best wishes with your blood test.
