Stomach cramps after embryo transfer

    Dear Dr, I had 17 eggs retrieved and had some cramps after the procedure. I then had a 2 day embryo and had a few more stomach cramps on the night after transfer. Would the cramps dislodge the embryo from the uterus?
    Thank you

    Dear angelam,

    Abdominal cramps are a normal symptoms after embryo transfer, and they do not translate into your treatment having failed or your embryos detaching from your uterus, so don’t worry.

    I hope this helps,

    Best wishes

    Thank you so much for replying. The cramps felt more like constipation, would they cause uterus cramps and expel the embryo? I am taking progesterone so I am hoping this would prevent the uterus cramps.
