I had my embryo transfer today on our second round of IVF.
This time we got 5 eggs again and they used ICSI which they didn't do last time, so we got 3 very good quality embryos. We had 2 at 11 cells and 1 at 8 cells. They transferred two embryos today.
I am also on Professor Quenbys treatment plan for high uterine Natural Killer as my count came back at over 25% (normal count is 5% or less) So this time I am also on 20 mg Prednisolone and Clexane injections from week 6 (fingers X we make it that far).
My question now is if constipation and the straining when trying to go to the toilet does effect implantation?
I am very constipated (sorry if TMI) and tried to use the toilet earlier. I tried not to strain too much as I am worried about the little 3 day old embryos. But I was trying for a few mins and nothing happened, so because I am worried I just hope that I will be able to go without straining at some point.
I am drinking lots of water and also some Peppermint tea during the day, I also eat vegetables and fruit. Told DP to buy me some apple juice and dried apricots in the hope that they might help.
Just so worried that me straining will badly effect the little ones implanting
Does anyone know? Thanks xx
