Not even made it to test date

Hi everybody

Just had my first cycle of ICSI and gutted that AF arrived on 8dp5dt already. Had started to get brown spotting with black stringy bits on day 5 after transfer (sorry for TMI), so hadn't been hopeful for a few days.

I always accepted that it may not work at first attempt, but getting AF so soon despite a high dose of progesterone (800 Utrogestan daily) really worries me.

Had anybody else has experience with bleeding early & BFN and whatd did your clinics say or advise? I'm at Reprofit in Czech Rep and I can't fail them for treatment as such (got 7 eggs, and 2 blastos and a morula on day 5), but they are a bit reticent and don't expect much wisdom with re to the early arrival of AF.

Hey Danube,

I would say don't assume it is a BFN until you test as some people do bleed and still get a BFP

i would still test on test day and I will be keeping everything crossed for you
