Hi.  I had a 3 day IVF transfer and about 7dpt through 11dpt  I had cramps and was sure I was getting my period but I had my Beta test earlier in the week and a BFP!  The checked my levels again today and they have doubled right on track.  So to me cramps were a good thing, but everyone is different.  Good luck BFPs' to all of you

i think any early symptoms are from the medications. I know its hard but its best to keep busy and play the waiting game.  Home pregnancy test I heard are not accurate until 16 days after procedure and the beta test gives you best accuracy...so hang in there. Good luck!

I had frozen embryo transfer 2 days ago. I have to wait 14 days to take a home pregnancy test. I know its too early to take a test now but i'm just feeling really anxious.I have cramps which I believe are due to the medication but i'm petrified that it's my period. I feel really tired and my body feels different does anyone know if medication can do this to you?

Hi!
As far as I can determine, nothing.  Many women have similar symptoms, and I haven't been able to determine any prognostic significance from them.  Most of the time I think that many women are hyper-aware of their bodies during the 14 day wait for the hcg test.
It's a very natural reaction!
Good luck!

I had FET yesterday 4/22 and have had cramps since the day before transfer 4/21 which are still continuing to date.  Doc said normal.   I had same symptoms with my first pregnancy, i just knew i was going to start but obviously never did (:
I wish you the best
