Answer from: Raúl Olivares, MD
You can go to the toilet, and you can go immediately after we finish the embryo transfer. As I’ve said several times, the endometrium is a virtual cavity, the embryos are going to remain there, and even if you go to the toilet, and you empty your bladder, the embryos are not going to fall out, they are going to stay there.
Sometimes, it could be really uncomfortable and really stressful for the patients to hold the bladder full when we have finished the transfer, so we don’t have any issue with that, and as soon as we finish the embryo transfer, if the patient wants to go to the toilet, we let her go, and you can pee, empty the bladder, that’s fine, it’s not an issue at all.
Is it safe to pee just after the embryo transfer procedure?
Is frequent urination normal after the embryo transfer? Will the embryos be safe?
