EC recovery

Hi, I had my egg collection on Tuesday this week and all went well. I was a bit tender and sore that evening then completely fine on Wed, but yesterday and today I have been getting really sharp pains in my lower tummy on the left side. It woke me up last night and then this morning i took a really bad one while hanging up some washing. It was so bad that it frightened me and I rang the clinic and Im waiting on them calling me back. The pain has passed now. Has anyone else had this type of thing when recovering from EC? Or am I being a hypercondriac!! :-)

  • Hi lou79. You’re definitely not being a hypochondriac! During egg collection, there is a lot of pushing and prodding going on, which can cause discomfort for a while afterwards. Also, your ovaries will probably remain a little active and need to settle down again after stimulation. This often causes sharp pains too. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water to help settle everything down again. Have a rest too when you can, and hopefully all will soon be back to normal. Good luck with the rest of the cycle.

  • Thank you Diane for the reply and the reassurance. I just got a bit panicky when I took that bad shooting pain earlier this morning and thought is that normal?! Maybe no more house work for me for another day or so :-)

  • Hi. Sounds good to me! Put your feet up and watch some "rubbish" on the TV. You will have earned it! Diane
