Extended bleeding after failed FET

Postby Puddles-O-Cuddles » Tue Oct 11, 2016 2:34 pm

Hey IVF'ers
I had a FET on September 2nd that unfortunately didn't take. On Sept 19th I started spotting, figuring it would lead into my period...but here I am, 23(!!) days later, and I'm still bleeding! Some days it's light, some days it's more like a normal period, sometimes it's bright red blood, sometimes it's more clotty or snot-like.
I totally understand that the point of the meds to prep for transfer is to make your uterine lining nice and thick...but surely this is getting ridiculous, right?
Has anyone else had this kind of bleeding after a failed FET?
