should give up? Feeling sorry for myself today..sorry guys...I'm worried. Today is CD15. I had my IUI last Saturday on CD11. My cycle runs about 25 days. I usually start spotting on CD 20 on a 25 day cycle. But today, I spotted pink! On CD 15? And I have a backache, crampy, and (I know this sounds crazy) but my sinus's hurt (usually that always happens around AF time). So I feel like AF is coming and quick...how can this be? Is this the start of menopause? This was my second cycle of injectibles....should I give up after two rounds? I'm very down also...maybe this is a result of the progesterone I am taking...???

I need some motivation...some success stories....in need of hope.

Thanks for reading,

It sounds way to early to be starting AF, it could even be implantation bleeding. I hear it is rare, but I had it with my PG last year. Why don't you call the RE and ask them what they think. I had my IUI last Friday and have been a bit crampy too, but I hear that sometimes happens. This 2WW is soooo hard isn't it.

As far as the number of rounds, I am also on my second round of injectibles. I think each persons situation is unique. For me the DR's don't think I should waste $$ on IVF due to egg quantity and quality unless I do donor eggs. I will probably give up after this round if this IUI doesn't work, but again I hear of others my age who do 3-4, so I guess I will cross that bridge when I come to it.

Hang in there,

Hi Barb,

Pink spotting this early could be implantation bleeding. You are pretty close in the area of that time frame.

Hang in there, you may be PG!!!!!!
