Hi Ladies,

I need a little advice. I received my BFN on November 19th after my first IVF attempt and got AF the next day, November 20. We decided to take a break for the next few months to recharge. Now it is only day 17 and I have started to have some bloody, mucus discharge (sorry TMI) when I go to the bathroom. I was just wondering if anyone could share their experiences after a failed IVF attempt in regards to your next cycle.

You could be ovulating which is causing the mucus and spotting.

I have had weird periods after a BFN and odd twinges and sensations around where my ovaries are. I always let my body rest for about 2-3 months between cycles. The best thing is to call your doctor and ask what is normal. It sounds okay to me, remember your body has been through alot of hormonal changes the past month.
