Pain after egg transfer

KatiePW profile image


I had my embryo transfer done today and am experiencing cramping and almost a trapped wind feeling (sorry!)...did anyone else experience this? I didn't have it on my first cycle of ivf.

Yes I had the cramping, I figured it was probably from the catheter irritating my cervix rather than anything else, but this is my first cycle and I know nothing really...! Good luck and try not to go crazy with the googling like I have!!! Xxx

Thanks for your response! It feels like it did after egg collection and just on the left side! This process can drive you insane!

I have still got some discomfort from retrieval last Wednesday and transfer on last Friday. I called my clinic and they said it's completely normal can take up to 6 weeks to completely go and the gel used after retrieval can also cause cramping. Hope this helps and your 2ww goes quickly for you xx

Thanks Katrina for your reply! Glad it's normal! Hope your two week wait goes quickly and will send positive thoughts your way! X

I had horrendous pain after the transfer fir about 5 days and it was all from the EC your body has been through the mill so I wouldn't worry just try and stay relaxed and comfy. Good luck for your 2ww and I hope it leads to a bfp xxx

Yes, I had twinges for about 5 days after, it takes a while for the ovaries to heal after egg collection. I kept getting gurgles in the stomach and bloating but at 8 days past I dont have any more. Mine werent very uncomfortable, if they you find them very painful or in a lot of discomfort ring the clinic. Wishing you all the best during this crazy time xxx

Good luck with your 2ww xxx
