Hi Dr. Jacobs,
This is my second IVF and I had no problems with the first except poor quality embryo's which was in 2005. So it's hard to compare but anyways wondering if cramping after embryo transfer is normal? I was fine right after but later in the afternoon I had some mild cramping and I can't distinguish if it was the same kind of "cramping" I've been having since my ER because of the procedure and swollen ovaries. Later in the evening it was a bit worse BUT after going to the washroom I was fine so I was chalking it up to that. Today I feel fine but can't help wonder if maybe the cramping wasn't a good thing and that my embryo's were affected This has been my best cycle in terms of quality of my embryo's (we transfered 4 all between 6 and 10 cells, a grade 1, 2 grade 2's and a grade 3) so to think that the cramping may of hurt things really scares me. So is cramping normal? This never happened the first time.
