Excessive bowel movements after ET

Has anyone experienced this?? Since my ET yesterday I've been a lot more than usual and im worried it's my body trying to flush out the embryo..even though I know bowel movements aren't connected.

I'm drinking plenty of water so as not to get dehydrated, it's just that everything I read seems to be about constipation not the other way..

Water flushes alot out of your body hun and after all the drugs in your system id except movements i had mine thursday and ive been going quite regularly really but i haven't even thought that it would be that as im quite regular anyway sorry not much help there lol xx


I'll keep drinking lots of water and hope it settles down, I've got ibs so wonder whether it's nerves from the hospital yday!

Thanks x


I don't think it cam happen anyway as they like you to get back to normal walking round ect keep positive xx


Hello there.. I had this, very very loose bowels and I was worried about the same issues as you - but I got a positive result and am 19 weeks pregnant.

I have had loose bowels throughout, no constipation at all. In fact I was going 5 times a day for a good month or so and i was exhausted.

It won't flush out the embryo at all.

All the best to you for a positive result. xx


Thanks for ur positive story, makes me feel more reassured. Good luck wiv the rest of ur pregnancy xx


Thanks. I forgot to mention that my bowels were loose before the 2ww, during the ENTIRE 2WW and after it too.

So seriously try not to worry, but I was utterly paranoid about it - so understand your concern.

Its so stressful isn't it! Thanks of the good wishes, same to you xx


keep us updated xx


It is! Just got over the joy of having a blastocyst implanted and then there's all these other worries!

Will do xx
