Yes, of course, you can go to work after an embryo transfer. There’s only one exception to that. I usually tell my patients that once they are pregnant, there might be some changes required. For example, if the patient is lifting heavy things or something like that, it’s better to change that after the transfer. In the end, if implantation takes place, it’s going to take place 24-36 hours after the embryo transfer, so you are going to be pregnant that fast though there is no way you can be aware of that.
The policy is that if you are pregnant, you should avoid certain things like if you are exposed to certain substances, or you are lifting heavy weights, or whatever, it’s better to change that after the transfer. If not, if your life is not going to change once you have a positive pregnancy test, it does not make any sense to change it before. You can live a normal life and go to work, continue doing whatever you were doing because this is not going to change the outcome.
How long should you rest after embryo transfer?
Should I rest after the embryo transfer is done? Is it OK to go to work after the embryo transfer? What’s best to avoid if I had my embryo transfer?
