Immense abdominal/trapped wind pain feeling following egg collection

Hi, I had egg collection on Monday around 11am. At first I had period type pains which subsided yesterday but have been replaced with immense trapped wind type pain in my abdomen yesterday evening. I took a couple of paracetamol thinking it would help get rid of the pain but I've been awake since 3am. Is this normal following egg collection? Just thinking I was a high dose of merional 300 iu and is what I'm feeling now a side effect?

Hello,

Sorry to hear you are so uncomfortable. I had this too, I had my collection last Wednesday and it took until Sunday to feel better. I phoned my unit and she said it can be quite common but to keep an eye out for other symptoms and keep drinking plenty of water. I also drank one still sports drink a day, snuggled up with my hot water and room paracetamol. Hope you feel better soon. xxx

Hi Anipea. Pleased that you are feeling better, but do keep up with the extra water to drink for a few more days, as your ovaries may still be a bit active. Hope you're soon back to normal again. Hope all goes/went well with transfer - and for success. Diane

Hi

I had this after egg collection. I warmed a wheat bag and used that. I had egg collection on a Monday and had acupuncture on the Wednesday and that made me feel loads better
