List of Precautions

Here is the list of precautions you need to take:

Rest : 

The size of the embryo is just 0.1 to 0.2 mm during the implantation process. Once inserted in the uterine cavity, it gets embedded in the uterus.

So when you stand or walk, the chances of the embryo falling off are nearly zero. So you do not need complete bed rest.

Just make sure you avoid activities in which the uterus contracts too much.

E.g., you should strictly avoid sexual intercourse.


There is no specific food for a patient who just had an embryo transferred to her uterus.

You can continue with your routine meal. All you have to do is divide your meal into 4 to 5 small portions.

Make sure you avoid fasting, as the medications that we offer might get you some acidity.

Other than that, you can eat all the fruits and vegetables. You can also consume meat without worrying about anything.

But make sure you drink enough water to ensure you do not get a urine infection.

Avoiding outside and junk food is advisable, too, as this might cause infection.

    Work and Movement: 

    You can rejoin your office the next day after the embryo transfer. As there is no need for complete bed rest after the embryo transfer, you can climb up and down the stairs.

    You can also travel intra-city for your routine work. Just ensure you stay away from individuals who have any sort of infection.

    Moreover, ensure you do not go into crowded places and avoid longer travels.


    Taking medicines after embryo transfer is one of the most important things.

    These medicines are critical for the implantation and growth of your embryo.

    So please ensure you do not miss even a single dose.

    Avoid Stress: 

    We understand if you feel stressed about the results of your embryo transfer. But stress can negatively impact your results.

    So the best way is to avoid stress and perform stress-relieving exercises, e.g., meditation.


    It’s essential that you reduce your tea and coffee consumption.
