Post Egg Collection

My egg collection went well yesterday.I was OK up until the drugs started to wear off in the afternoon then I was in trouble...never known pain like it last night. At one point we considered going to A&E!

I feel like I've been punched repeatedly in my stomach and I can't barely walk so I'm staying in bed all day today and taking tomorrow off too.😣

I felt exactly the same. I struggled to walk the afternoon of EC and the next day was still pretty tender. Keep your paracetamol up every 4 hours and rest.

Hi Buffy21. So sorry to hear this. Sounds like your ovaries might still be a bit active. Make sure you drink plenty of water and keep up with the paracetamol, unless something else is prescribed. Rest when you can and no anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen. Thinking of you. Diane
