The transfer itself is a very easy procedure. It can be done with no sedation in 99.9% of the cases. It should be painless for the patient.  It can be uncomfortable like any other examination, like a pap smear in which you need to place the speculum to see the cervix. In normal conditions, the time that we need to transfer the embryo is less than 5 minutes. The transfer itself, since we usually place the catheter inside the uterus before the embryo leaves the incubator, the time that we need to transfer the embryo inside is going to be less than 30 seconds. After that, you just need a couple of hours of relative rest, and that’s it. You can start living a completely normal life.
