Our FS says it doesn't make a difference and I am up and out of there pretty much as soon as I run out of things to talk about with the FS after transfer.

I've heard other clinics require you to lie down for a while (20-30 mins) after an emby transfer.

What does your clinic do???

They didn't tell me to lay down afterwards or anything, but did recommend I didn't go to work later (nurse on night shift). I just spent lots of time on the couch anyway, didn't stop me from being a bit paranoid.

For IUIs, I had to lie down for 15 -20 mins but for IVF transfers, just 5. But I went home and went to bed for the rest of the day

Just had my first IVF transfer at MIVF.
FS had me out of there as soon as it was done.
I was initally worried but after reading up, it seems it makes no difference. I even read some studies were it seem to offer a very slight benefit.

my clinic also said to get right up and carry on as usual except not to lift anything over 5kgs and not do exercise above a walk until the blood test.

Im currently 28 weeks, so it was ok for me!

Yep, up and out of there straight away original.gif. I felt certain that the embryo would fall out!

Up and out as soon as transfer is complete.

I was up and out of there within about 10 seconds following transfer. I went straight back to work afterwards (office job).

I got my BFP so it worked out fine for me.

The fertility doctor had told me on a previous visit that there was no need to rest or lie down as he assured me that the embryo is nestled in your endometrium and can't fall out.

Did IUI and IVF at MIVF. Always got up straight away.

2 out of 3 transfers have ended up in babies.

Wow that is suprising how different clinics are.

With IUI I had to lay down for 20 mins afterwards.

With transfers I shuffle from one bed to another bed and then wheeled into the recovery room to lay down for 30 mins. I don't get up at all with transfers. With both transfers (fresh and FET) I had 'success' of sorts - see my sig.

My FS says don't bother laying down after a FET. For my last successful one I did the FET, immediately got back in my car and drove 4 long, bumpy hours home. That was the one that got a BFP.

They would have had me up and out of there straight away, but I chose to have acupuncture which made me feel much better about the little guy settling in!

With my iui they kept me lying down for about 15 minutes and would even tilt the bottom half of the bed up! Got a bfp 1 out of 5 cycles. With ivf, got up after couple of minutes and got a bfp on our only ivf cycle to date.

Our clinic it's up and out right away.

After reading here about the 'lie down clinics' I had a worried whine to my friend (medical specialist who is also doing IVF) and she explained it to me as like "Putting a poppy seed onto a bit of jammy bread.."

(ie: it isn't going ANYWHERE whether you are up or down!)

I don't belong here anymore but my FS basically told me my uterus was like a wet plastic bag. Lovely image that!

Another one who was up and out straight away.  Followed by 1 hour car trip home and generally taking it easy that day.  4 cycles - 2 BFP's original.gif

My FS describes it as a sticky Jam sandwich. You could shake the sandwich up and down but the seeds all stay in the Jam.  My clinic likes a full bladder so they can guide it in better using ultrasound.  So after my transfers i have been busting for a wee.  I try to hold it in because i am paranoid i am going to pee out the emby straight away!!!

It's so good to hear others are up and out of there straight away too.

After nearly having to cancel the FET this month, I ovulated really late (day 20) and the transfer is booked in for this coming Wednesday.  Can't belive it.  Now all I need to do is hope for a successful thaw.  I no longer need to worry about my emby "dropping out" thanks to your replies.  original.gif

I was asked to lie still for a couple of minutes after just to make sure they did infact transfer the embryo.  I then went to the loo and had a blood test...  all very straight forward, whole proceedure took about 20 minutes from arriving to leaving...

Posted 22 January 2013 - 09:57 AM

I was told lying down made no difference and was up and out straight away - including going for a pee immediately after transfer....

I am currently 29 weeks..?

Good luck with everything - hope it is successful for you! x
