Do’s and don'ts after the embryo transfer.

Lots of patients are very worried that they will do something stupid after the transfer, which will reduce the chances of their embryo implanting, and cause their IVF cycle to fail.
These anxieties usually falls into the category of foods which they eat; (hot foods or cold foods); or physical activity. For example, they are scared that lifting weights , or the bumpy ride on Indian roads may dislodge the embryo.
This is why many doctors are happy to give them a long list of do’s and don'ts. Mother-in-laws and mothers and aunts will also chime in, with many old wives' tales. And friends who are pregnant will be happy to add their 2 cents !
The truth is that the natural place for an embryo is the uterus – it’s its natural sanctuary ! An embryo in a uterus is like a pearl in an oyster – it’s safe and secure and nothing you can do can dislodge it, so you really don't need to worry.
Remember that an IVF pregnancy is exactly like a natural pregnancy – the only difference is that you happen to know there is an embryo in your uterus ( which fertile women who are having baby making sex don’t !)
Whether the embryo spends five days in the test tube in the IVF lab, five days in your fallopian tube inside the body doesn't matter – once it reaches the uterus, it’s safe.
Of course, whether it will implant or not is not something we can control – that’s still a biological process we cannot influence as yet !
