Second opinion] Hi I finished up my first IVF cycle, and my first beta was 16. Is this a sign of a chemical or ectopic pregnancy, or could this still be a normal pregnancy? I had some spotting 2 days ago, and have some abdominal cramps(like menstrual cramps) on/off primarily a couple inches below my umbilicus.

Ok I have another embarrassing question... I had a 3 day

Ok I have another embarrassing question... I had a 3 day embryo transfer(2 embryos) 4 days ago and have followed all of the restrictions but a couple nights ago I think I had an orgasm while I was sleeping. Would this cause an ectopic pregnancy? I've felt light menstrual like cramps the last couple days here and there and don't know if I inadvertently did some harm or this is unrelated. Sorry again for the awkward question but have been worrying and not comfortable asking my RE!

My period is 1 day late. I took an HCG test this morning and

My period is 1 day late. I took an HCG test this morning and it was negative. I am having lower back pain that has gone on for about 5 days now and extrema fatigue. I have never been pregnant before. We tried for the first time this month. I also had what appeared to be a very painful spasm post BM in the middle of the night/gas pain. It lasted about 15 minutes. I have no idea what is going on. Does this sound like pregnancy to you? I know that it can take time for HCG levels to test positive but again, I am one day late and experiencing these symptoms....

My question is about menstrual cramps--for the past few

HI! My question is about menstrual cramps--for the past few years they have been almost a non-issue (some months I didn't feel them at all; other months I would take 1 ibuprofen and that would ease the minimal pain), and then suddenly, during my last period, they were INCREDIBLY intense, lasting 4 days and keeping me home from work. At worse, within 24 hrs, I took 3 ibuprofen and 4 Aleve, which helped but didn't completely numb the pain. I have no idea why the sudden change, as nothing in my life or lifestyle during that month changed drastically. I had a copper IUD (ParaGard) put in about a year and a half ago and had minor cramping when it was first put in but no other problems since. Any idea what the problem might be? Please help before my next period begins!!?!!!

I need to know after the embryo transfer procedure in an IVF

Hello, I need to know after the embryo transfer procedure in an IVF treatment, is constant continuous pain an indicator of a failed implantation? I always have pain after the ovulation normally, so wondering if the implantation was successful, then probably the pain should not be there anymore? Thank you.
