Firstly, it should be clear the total bed rest after an ET is unnecessary and can be counterproductive. It has been proved that bed resting for recovery does not increase the pregnancy rates.

In fact, being totally sedentary may be a disadvantage, as inactivity and high levels of estrogens can promote blood clotting and a rise in insulin resistance.

Doing exercise and leading a normal lifestyle is beneficial, as it can help reduce inflammation and cramping by promoting healthy blood flow and lowering the levels of stress.
