What are the day-by-day symptoms after an embryo transfer?

By Sara Salgado.
Last Update: 10/31/2016

As explained earlier, IVF embryo transfer is a simple procedure which presents no severe symptoms or side effects at all. Once the embryos have been placed into the uterus and the woman has rested for a few minutes right after that, she can continue with her normal lifestyle.

Strong pain or severe adverse reactions are uncommon. However, there are cases in which women may develop a mild discomfort or slight bleeding as a consequence of cervical manipulation at the time of embryo transfer.

On the other hand, there are no ET failure symptoms. While some women may experience nausea, bloating or even spotting/bleeding due to hormone medications or embryo implantation, these side effects can be noticed as well without it indicating success or failure.
