    Default Long af and OCP before IVF

    I am currently on day 9 of the pill before starting IVF. I started on cd 2 of my cycle. It is cd10 now and I STILL have af...my periods are usually very short (2-4 days).

    It is light flow and red, heavier than spotting.

    I called the clinic and they said if it gets heavier or is still there on Wednesday they may have to change pills.

    Really frustrated..I have never had anything like this before. My problem is always that my periods and cycles are too short

    Has anyone else experienced this on the pill? Is it bad in terms of prepping for my IVF cycle,that is, could it delay things?

    TIA

    Hi Patience, I have normal 6-7day period, on the pill it was non stop! It stopped when I started the synarel and then restarted when I stopped the pill before I started injections, then continued for another 4-5days. My clinic just done extra few BT to make sure all my levels were good, and wallah everything was perfect.

    Thanks @mumofjay for sharing your experience! Makes me feel better the main thing I was worried about was it delaying the cycle or something!

    That was my concern also, and I think I rang my FN everyday almost to get reassurance, but she said as long as all my BT levels were good then it didn't matter. Good luck!
