Should I start or not? Is this a real period?

Hey Everyone

Not been on here for a while! But have a query! Been waiting what seems like forever for 3rd go of IVF. 1st go was successful but had m/c at 7 weeks. 2nd go didn't get enough eggs to go ahead and has been cancelled twice in mean time as bank holidays and clinic too busy! Am on NHS - have this go and 1 more if not successful.

I was put on the pill to control when my period came and told to put two pill packets together which I did.So that egg collection would not be on next weeks bank holiday. Due to stop taking pill on Thursday. I started a very light brown bleeding last Sat. Sorry if too much info. This continued and called doc on tue as got heavier. They told me to continue to take pill til Thursday and call if changes. Was a breakthrough bleed and not period.

Things changed on Wed as was much redder and heavier but not full blown period. Called again and after waiting eventually for a call. The receptionist told me I was booked to go for a scan on Friday. Call back was on Thurs eve when doc had left! I was not told to stop taking pill so continued thurs eve as was last one and bleeding went back to being brown. After having scan and bloods done yesterday(fri) said to start taking drugs as was on day 3 of cycle. When I explained about returning to being brown the nurse called the doctor and said to not take the drugs and wait to see if I get a period over the weekend and then start the drugs. I am on the short protocol - menopur.

I did start to have red period last night and red this morning but much lighter than my normal period and have slowed right down again with bit of browish burgandy tinge to it as well. I haven't taken drugs and the clinic is shut. Just wondering if this is my period and to take drugs tomorrow or this still breakthrough bleed? Is it lighter than normal as I have been beleding on and off all week? My normal period is 3 days and relatively heavy.

Clinic said to call on Monday and let them know what I have done. Help! Anyone else had this? Cheers ladies I know you all sooo helpful. Sorry this post so long and bit tmi!!!! K ?o(

:goodluck: hun. I know how frustrating it is for a normal cycle to be b*ggered up by drugs etc and not be what we usually expect! Hope that you get your real AF soon.

Hey

Thanks for your good wishes. Panic is over! Period began last night for real and I started injections today. Am excited and nervous. Watch this space. Can't believe time is really here. Let's hope it works.
