Did I harm my embryos?

A patient sent me this email .

I had my FET yesterday, I have voiding  dysfunction and soon after the transfer I peed , I was really really uncomfortable but due to my problem I had difficulty peeing and I stressed my bladder and peed,soon after I was so worried that due to the pressure I applied on my bladder and lower abdomen I might have expelled my embryos 😢and after coming home I forgetfully sat on Indian toilet in squatting position to urinate.does this in any way effect or dislodge my embryos. I'm very remorseful of my irresponsible actions.

Most IVF patients are petrified that their actions will harm their  embryos which is why they try to be super careful after the transfer because they don't want to do anything which would reduce the chances of their embryos implanting.

Many doctors also advise strict bed rest and a very controlled diet, and this reinforces the impression that there is something they can do to improve their chances of success.

However the reality is that embryo implantation is in in utero biological process which we cannot control and does not depend either on diet or physical activity.

Your embryos are safe in your uterus, like a pearl in an oyster. Nothing you do can harm them , so please do not worry about this.

Please do not let your mind play games with you
