An IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) embryo transfer is the final stage of the procedure in which the fertilized egg is implanted in the woman's uterus. The following article discusses how soon you may experience symptoms after a successful frozen embryo transfer and whether it is possible to not experience any symptoms at all.

Common Symptoms After Embryo Transfer

  • You may experience spotting or bleeding following embryo transfer
  • Experiencing sore to the touch or swollen breasts could indicate a successful embryo transfer
  • Cramping is a symptom that signals menstruation approaching, but it can also be a positive sign of a successful embryo transfer
  • The feeling of being fatigued for 7 days after embryo transfer and until the delivery date is a typical pregnancy symptom
  • The extra bloating around your midsection is due to elevated progesterone levels
  • Increased thirst and urination could be an early sign of pregnancy
  • A missed period following embryo transfer may very well be an indication of pregnancy, especially if your menstrual cycle is regular
  • Morning sickness or nausea is commonly experienced by many women two weeks after their missed period
  • Changes in vaginal discharge for the first 7 days following embryo transfer could be a sign of pregnancy. During the first week, you may notice a white, mildly smelling vaginal discharge.
  • Headaches are common when there is a spike in hormones. It could indicate that you are pregnant or that your menstruation is about to begin.
  • Excess Saliva can become excessive for a variety of reasons. Nausea and hormone surges are two of the most typical causes.

How Many Days After Embryo Transfer Should You Feel Symptoms

Soon after the embryo is transferred and directly implanted into the uterus, early pregnancy symptoms vary and may appear before or after the two-week mark.

Are No Symptoms a Sign of Failed Embryo Transfer?

It is normal to experience no symptoms following your embryo transfer. The absence of symptoms for 7 days following embryo transfer does not imply that your embryo implantation was a failure. In general, your hCG levels play a significant role in your pregnancy. Know when to take a pregnancy test to confirm.

You may be wondering if you can still be pregnant after an embryo transfer but have no symptoms? Yes, it is possible to be pregnant and not have any pregnancy symptoms, but it's not a very common occurrence.
