::lurker:: BCP before IVF question

Hi! I'm popping in from SIF and am wondering if anyone here has previous experience or insight on breakthrough bleeding while on BCP prior to your ivf cycle? I'm on week 2/5 (cd9) of BCP and am still experiencing spotting/light flow. I know it's BCP related, and my RE isn't worried, but of course I want input from women who have btdt. The plan is to do the ER and ET right around the first week of March, so hopefully I'll get to join you all late March!

Two DDs 10/08 and 08/10, no primary IF
TTC #3 since 10/2011 - dx unexplained/weak ovulation
 3 BFN clomid + TI cycles, 5 BFN clomid/gonal f IUIs, 1 mmc IUI
2/19/2014 IVF #1 Unexpected low E2 (oversuppressed) -> increased to max doses = 3 or 4 follicles, converting to IUI
BFFP Saw 1 beautiful heartbeat at 6w6d, follow up u/s at 9w showed mmc. Eff this.
NTNP 5/2014-9/2014, OPKs and TI 10/2014 - 1/2015. 
RPL testing all normal, AFC, AMH, and FSH all normal. 
IVF 1.2 1/22/2014 natural cycle start, AFC 28, 300 gonal f/150menopur. 
ER 2/3/15 14R 8M 3F w/ICSI Day 5 transfer on 2/8/15 of one "Grade A+" blast and have TWO frosties!

Re: ::lurker:: BCP before IVF question

  • Yup! I really had it for my FET. Once I finished the first pack and started the second, I bled every day for three weeks. Totally not a concern. The only thing I can say is that it was very confusing for me to know if I had finally got my period after I started Lupron. When they checked my lining they confirmed I had a period, otherwise I didn't know. :)
