During the IVF embryo transfer procedure, Robert, my long-time ultrasonographer, has been telling patients for years: "Laughing, coughing, sneezing, peeing, pooping and walking do not knock the embryos out. Embryos don't fall out. You can't knock them out, but you also can't make them stick."

Many of my patients worry the most about what they can and cannot do after an embryo transfer. The fear is if they do something wrong, the embryo won’t attach or it will fall out.

This is simply not true. Yes, you should relax and take it easy after an IVF embryo transfer. But no, bed rest is not necessary. http://ow.ly/8WVh30lQNG9
