View Full Version : Embryo transfer and BAD cramping
Hi! I have just failed my second FET. My first FET resulted in an ectopic pregnancy.
Both transfers went smoothly, as far as the catheter going in easily, but afterwards, both times, I had severe cramping for the rest of the day.
Is this normal? I read somewhere that uterine spasms can increase the risk of an ectopic- could this be what is happening? I noticed some ladies at the clinic for their transfers (but a different Dr) get given valium... could this maybe help?
Just wondering if it's worth bring up with my FS before I do my next cycle?
Thanks so much in advance for any help or advice!
leeamber - I haven't had the cramping so can't comment on that, but I would recemmend talking to your FS about it before next time. It may be nothing to worry about, but you would rather know than not, right? :yes:
Goodluck. I hope you get the answers you need and the miracle that you want!:hugs:
i have had 3 FET and with the first one had cramping on the 2nd day and with the other 2 had cramping the afternoon of the ET. my FS said that it can be normal but it is something that you should talk to your FS about just in case
i hope your next ET results in a little angel good luck
Littlefreckle, any symptons yet. Only 2 more sleeps, very exciting.:fingerscrossed:
not sure dont really feel different like everyone keeps telling me i will boobs are a bit sore but that could be due to the pesseries. will keep hoping and let you know on friday take care
littlefreckle, I hope it is all good. I had sore boobs and thought that it was because of the pessaries or the pregnyl shot I had but it had turned out to be a bub so :fingerscrossed: it is your first sign as well.
I had mild cramping the afternoon and next day with all of my transfers 9 to be exact and out of the 9 i had 2 pregnancies and still had the cramping no more and no less then when i didn't get a pregnancy.
You should however consult your FS if it is worse then AF pains. Apparently your uterus can contract afterwards because it has been interferred with and that is normal.
Leeamber- I havn't experienced the cramping that you mentioned.
My first ICSI/IVF cycle also resulted as a ectopic pregnency. How cruel it all seems sometimes. I'm very sorry for your loss.
I am going through the QFG clinic in Brisbane and my FS recommends valium and we also have Brandy available to relax us.
The first cycle I'd actually had 4 valium and a brandy before I'd left the building. Somehow this seemed to hype me up and I was unable to sleep for the seven hour trip home.
On returning for a FET cycle in February I had 2 valium and a brandy and just couldn't control myself. I remember sitting on a brick wall out the front of QGF laughing my *** off while my husband retrieved the car. I did notice delivery drivers, patients around me but just coudn't stop laughing ! This all stopped when I got into the car and I went from a laughing idiot into a babling mess of tears. [My poor darling husband]. I did manage to sleep nearly all the way home. I look back now and have a laugh about it. I do wonder what the the poor bystanders thought? In short I am greatful that these things are available to me.
Wishing you all the best on your journey!
