Is it safe to go to the bathroom after an embryo transfer?

Embryo transfer is a common procedure used in assisted reproductive technology (ART), such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF). Its objective is to facilitate a successful pregnancy by placing one or more fertilised embryos into the woman’s uterus.

Is it safe to go to the bathroom after an embryo transfer?

Absolutely! It is perfectly safe to go to the bathroom after your embryo transfer.

Your uterus is a muscular organ, which means that it will naturally stay contracted. Before your transfer, the nurses will make sure your uterine lining is quite thick to create a nice thick, sticky environment for your embryo.

When the embryo is transferred back into your uterus, it will be stuck between your uterine walls and the muscle will contract, creating a perfectly protected environment for your little embryo to grow.
