Yes, as long as they are in good condition, I can’t see why you can’t eat eggs after the embryo transfer. In some cases, patients ask us if they can eat sushi, raw meat, ham. Probably, the most effective thing that you can do in terms of what you can eat or how do you must eat is to really wash the vegetables, fruits very well, even those that you get from the back because that’s the easiest way of getting something like toxoplasmosis, for example.
Anything else as long as you go to any good place, and you eat food in good condition, there is no extra risk in the fact that you may eat sushi, raw meat or even if you eat very poorly cooked eggs, or even if you mix them with a let’s say steak tartare, and you eat it. The main problem is the infections you may get, but if the products are handled in good condition, there are no real side effects or anything you should be worried about.
