This is one of these kinds of things that patients are really afraid of, but that does not have any relevant impact on the outcome.  As long as you’re healthy, coughing is not an issue, the embryos are not going to fall out.

As I always tell my patients, the uterine cavity is virtual in which the embryos are going to remain there, whatever you do after the transfer. If you ride a  bicycle, if you got any bump in the street, if you cough or you make any strong physical efforts,  the embryos are not going to fall out.  It really does not make any sense to get worried about this kind of thing, and that’s it. Coughing is not going to make your embryos leave the endometrium cavity.
