The doctors office tells you no intercoarse after your transfer. But they don't tell you no orgasms. If i had masterbated the day after transfer, could that have ruined my attempt at the embyro sticking. I researched and learned on the internet No Orgasms.

Hi Anonymous,

The reason why you shouldn't orgasm post embryo transfer is due to you creating contractions of the uterus; which you are trying to avoid. What you can do now is continue to avoid sex and orgasms. It is still possible for you to conceive so try to remain calm, don't stress out about it, and call your doctor if you would like some added reassurance.

Here's a great fertility forum where women have also experienced orgasms post transfer and successfully conceived: http://forums.fertilitycommunity.com/vitro-fertilization-ivf/273136-orgasm-after-transfer.html

I hope you have a BIG FAT POSITIVE pregnancy test soon :)

All the best,

Thank you for your quick response. I've been very emotional with all the shots and horomones raging. I'm currently on my 2nd cycle and want to make sure i do everything right!! I guess all i can hope for is that the embryo sticks. Thanks again

You are most welcome. Emotions will run high but try not to put too much pressure on yourself. :)
