After having IVF treatment, expectant mothers restrict themselves when they return to their daily lives in order not to adversely affect the treatment. In this regard, there is intense pressure from those around them, especially for them to lie down constantly. Expectant mothers should definitely take into account the warnings and recommendations of the center where they had the treatment. We have gathered these suggestions and warnings under the headings.
Daily life: If the patient does not have any pain and feels well, he can return to his daily life activities one day after the transfer.
take a trip: If the couple’s home is not in the same city as the center of the transaction, they can spend the day of the transfer at the center and travel the next day.
Sex life: Couples should not have sexual intercourse until they get the result of the pregnancy test. If the patient is pregnant, sexual intercourse should not be established until the baby’s heartbeat is observed. Afterwards, however, bleeding etc. If there is no problem, the doctor should be consulted and acted upon.
Medication use: After the procedure, the patient is given hormone drugs in the form of needles, suppositories or creams to support the tissue lining the uterus (endometrium). This treatment continues until the tenth week of pregnancy if pregnancy occurs. In cases where pregnancy does not occur and there is menstrual bleeding, treatment is discontinued with the onset of bleeding.
Health: Patients in treatment may be constipated due to the progesterone they use after the transfer. In such cases, the patient can be recommended medication suitable for their condition so that the patient can go to the toilet regularly. Constipation does not adversely affect conception.
There may be groin pain related to treatment. In case of severe pain, fever above 38 degrees, nausea, vomiting, a doctor should be called immediately.
