    Default What happens if the embryo doesn't survive after transfer?

    Hello, I've just started researching about IVF and i have no experience in child birth, so my questions might sound a bit ignorant...

    Is it considered a miscarriage if the embryo doesn't survive after transfer into the uterus? Does the embryo pass out of your body naturally, or is surgery necessary? Does it depend on the age of the embryo/fetus?

    I'm sure a miscarriage is emotionally traumatic, but besides that, from a biological view, how soon after this can my body try a new embryo transfer or new IVF cycle? Thank you!

    I believe it is absorbed by the body

    Hi May20. When we were doing ivf the nurses told us that if the transfer didn't work you would get a heavier period than what you normally would.

    I would imagine you would only need surgery if you got a positive test but miscarried later on in the pregnancy.

    I hope this helps a little. Ivf is so confusing.

    It's the same as a chemical pregnancy.

    I've only had one, and I had some light bleeding a couple weeks after when AF would have been due. But about a month later I had a crazy heavy flow. The worst was about 12 hours and I was passing very large clots (sorry if TMI). Like going thru super tampons in 30-60 minutes and huge maternity pads.

    It was horrible as I wasn't expecting it and was in a spa when it started.

    In retrospect I probably should have seen a doctor, but I was out of town when it happened and it passed as quickly as it came on.
