Here is a journal article from "Human Reproduction), sure its older (mid nineties) but the conclusion of the study was that there is NO difference in success rates between people who had bed rest of 20 minutes after embryo transfer, versus women who had bedrest for 24 hours after transfer. The study was done of 182 infertility patients.

You rest ten minutes after transfer and then get up and get moving. No bed rest.

I heard the same thing about the rest thing. I do not post much because I am majorly superstitious, but I had to go the bathroom sooooo bad that I did not even rest but maybe just shy of 10 min. at my transfer. They wanted me to at least wait 10 min, but I got up went to the bathroom thinking omg I just wasted everyones time and money etc...this will never work now because I got up too soon AND went to the bathroom. Well, it worked and stayed and I still do not believe it. Its all a crap shoot. It worked for me and I did not rest that much AT ALL. Good luck and best wishes to everyone. It was a hard choice to make and still is hard at times to deal with, but the good moments out weigh the bad.

That the reason why U.S. clinics seem to still impose bed rest after tx isn't because they know it isn't necessary, but because they want to prevent women from doing stupid things after tx. A friend of mine told me about a woman she used to work for who did 17 unsuccessful OE IVF cycles, which all apparently failed because she wouldn't stop running before, during, or after. Now, that woman sounds like an exercise anorexic, and you have to wonder whether her whole problem conceiving in the first place wasn't due to her running compulsion, but there are some crazy people out there.

INTERESTING...

MY CLINIC (FSAC IN T.O, CA) TOLD ME TO REST FOR 24 HOURS SO I DID. OUR SINGLE HATCHING BLASTOCYST "TOOK" AND BECAME OUR DD. I'M NOT SURE IF THE BED REST MADE THE DIFFERENCE BUT I FIGURE IT DIDN'T HURT.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU!

P.S. MY RE ALSO BELIEVED IN PIO INJECTIONS (RATHER THAN PROGESTERONE SUPPOSITORIES THAT MY OTHER RE, DR. MARRS ALLOWED.) I BELIEVE THERE IS SOME SUPPORT FOR THE SHOTS BEING MORE EFFECTIVE. GOOD LUCK!
