Hello doctor,

I am almost 6 weeks pregnant and today I saw a bit bleed when I wipe it with a tissue paper.

FET was done 20 days after my LMP. Three embryos were transferred (blastocyst). My hCG taken between two consecutive days was 494, 886 and 2597 respectively. Is small amount of bleed normal? I am confused. Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It could be implantation bleeding. If you are taking any blood thinner like low molecular weight Heparin, Ecosprin then stop immediately. Also inform the hospital where you are taking treatment, so that additional progesterone and hCG support can be added to avoid abortion.

Also, take complete rest, do not bend from the waist a lot. Continue taking other medicines and injections except for blood thinner.

Thank you doctor,

I am taking Ecosprin 75 mg. Implantation has already happened rite? That how I am 6 weeks pregnant. What could be the possible reason for that blood? I am on vaginal progesterone and no injections. I read few blogs online it is common to get bleed when uterus expands. Is that true? Please reply.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Stop taking ecosprin. Now the pregnancy is small. It is not occupying the whole uterus so from other part of uterus (where pregnancy is not implanted), such bleeding can occur. Also, implantation takes time.

It is common but since this is IVF (in vitro fertilization) pregnancy you need to be vigilant. observe whether it is increased or stopped. If increased, do not wait at home. Visit the doctor as soon as possible.

Continue progesterone, folic acid and also inform the hospital too. Tablet Tranexamic acid 500 mg twice a day for three days can be started to stop bleeding.
