There is not much a patient can do after the embryo transfer. What we use and what we recommend is that they should consider themselves pregnant as soon as we have transferred the embryo because if everything works as expected, the embryo is going to implant 24 to 36 hours after the embryo transfer. So we tell them there is not much they can do to change the outcome and that they should behave as if they were already pregnant, that is leading a completely normal life but avoiding strong physical effort, risky situations, and being especially aware of what they eat and drink. But, apart from that, everything is going to be as if they had got pregnant naturally. So we prefer not to stress them with an excessive rest and we encourage them to lead a normal life.
