Hacking cough after transfer

(3 Posts)

I had my FET yesterday. I have had a cough for a while now and I'm really worried that repeated coughing will damage my chances of implantation.

Does anyone know if this is the case?

I'm worried sick about it.

How soon after the procedure did you cough a lot?

I've researched this a lot and the jury is out. There is just not enough information about it. Women have had the same amount of summer babies conceived in winter months when coughs are more common for millennia. I know it's hard but if coughing was really a big problem they would give women cough remedies before transfer.
Did you have a muscle relaxant and lie down after?

I started coughing the same day. Probably a couple of hours after the transfer. I also coughed yesterday. The cough seems better today (day 3).

I did lie down afterwards but didn't have a muscle relaxant.

I mentioned to my doctor that I had a cough and had a throat sweet during the procedure but he didn't say anything about coughing afterwards.

The embryo was only a 3 day one so I'm hoping that if it implants it'll be after today.
