Our expert says:
The symptoms that you describe are highly suggestive of implantation having occurred and it is highly possible that more than one embryo is attempting to implant. I would strongly recommend that you do a blood pregnancy test (BHCG quantitative). In addition I would recommend that progesterone blood test be take at the same time and if indicated a progesterone supplement may be necessary such as cyclogest or uterogestrone. In future I would strongly recommend that you start progesterone supplementation early i.e. plus minus 4-5days after confirmed ovulation having occurred and to continue some supplementation until a pregnancy test confirms a pregnancy. Should the pregnancy test come back positive the progesterone supplementation is then maintained until at least 7-8 weeks of pregnancy. However, if the pregnancy test is negative the progesterone is discontinued. In addition other causes of implantation failure should also be investigated for such conditions as antiphospholipid syndrome, lupus anticoagulant and autoimmune screening.
