I had IVF yesterday morning, I'm 36 years old soon to be 37. They implanted 3 embryos that were 2+ grades. Because of the recent retrievel process I've been constipated. Yesterday, I strained during a bowel movement and I'm worried I may have hurt the embryos? I've been on bed rest and I'm doing everything else. Also, there is no reason we haven't been able to get pregnant naturally except that I don't ovulate normally. It's all timing so they felt IVF was the best option to control timing.
I'm worried I may have hurt our potential babies. Can you please tell me if I have cause for concern?
I think you will be fine... We did a fresh cycle IVF in November of 2005 - I was nervous because, opposite your position, I had the "runs"... I was afraid that "going" too much would cause the embryo to "fall" out... Well, that embryo hung on - and is almost 16 months old... Try not to worry :o)
