Day 1: The blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell.
Day 2: The blastocyst continues to hatch out of its shell and begins to attach itself to the uterus.
Day 3: The blastocyst attaches deeper into the uterine lining, beginning implantation. Day 4: Implantation continue.
Many fertility specialists and treatment providers indicate that frozen embryo transfers provide a higher pregnancy success rate than using fresh embryos during assisted reproductive technology.
Do not eat leftovers, too much sugar, processed food, canned food, alcoholic beverages, caffeine, and foods containing mercury from the day of embryo transfer. If your doctor suggests, take a multivitamin with folic acid every day
Avoid extreme temperatures against your abdomen and uterus. This can deregulate your reproductive system and impact your embryo transfer's success. Eat a high-fat, low-carb diet to reduce inflammation throughout your body, G.I. tract, and reproductive system
The first 24 hours after an embryo is transferred are most likely the most critical. It is within this time frame that an embryo has to “attach” to the uterine wall before it can fully implant, which may take several days. Therefore, for the first one to two days, stay home and chill out.
You are officially pregnant and your frozen embryo transfer was successful. This means you will remain under the care of the fertility clinic to further monitor the pregnancy development with ultrasounds and blood tests until you are 8 to 10 weeks pregnant
Do I need to stay in bed after my embryo transfer? Once you get home there is no need for full best rest. Staying in bed does not increase the chance of successful implantation. However, no strenuous activity or vigorous exercising
Some women do notice signs and symptoms that implantation has occurred. Signs may include light bleeding, cramping, nausea, bloating, sore breasts, headaches, mood swings, and possibly a change in basal body temperature.
