You are lucky if that is the only pains you are experiencing.
I could not walk properly the day after mine. Imagine a John Wayne with his nuts in a twist. That was the walking style!!

It is very normal concidering that they have pricked you with a long needle time and time again! :)
At least 17 times for you!

I had 8 and was still in pain..

Good luck with everything! :D

I've got exactly the same as you both. I thought originally I was seriously constipated [zx153] but don't think it is that. It's just the general bruising coming out. I went back into work the last two days but regretted it.

I've been doing the John Wayne walk [zx169] for 2 days and I think the worst bit is no-one noticed! I had a dodgy back excuse ready but they never gave me the opportunity to receive their sympathy! :pout

Stomach pain after EC collection

Hi Everyone,

I am a semi-newbie (posted a couple of posts a while back concerning wait for treatment).

I've been reading your posts on and off while going through treatment and have now got to the dreaded 2WW.

I was just wondering if any of you girls on here experienced stomach pain following egg collection. I had my egg collection 3 days ago and have a mild/moderate pain near my stomach/just below the chest when I make certain movements ie; getting up from the sofa/out of the car etc. Otherwise fine.

I have no N & V , only mild abdominal swelling ( probably down to the progestrone pessaries, and am peeing normally . Also produced under 15 folloices (4 eggs), so do not think it is OHSS.

I am just wondering if any of you girls experienced a similar pain after egg collection? ?(

Hi May,

I had my EC last Monday and felt a little uncomfortable Monday night with cramping and bloating (but I blammed that on popping in the local for a quick half on the way home...the dr said you'll need a stiff one tonight!).

What I did was take boots own paracetamol 2 every 4 hours and bach rescue remedy 2 squirts before bed also! By Tues I was feeling better!

rested all day Tuesday then, hubby took me out for a chinese 1) as a kinda celebration ...relief to the positive morning call from clinic and 2) of take my mind off ET next day!

Wed ET was a bit of an ordeal but that's again because of not knowing what to expect! but after the prod preperation, watching the ET on screen is quite amazing!

the stomach will settle down this was my first time too!

Good Luck May :hugs: kepp tummy warm

RE: Stomach pain after EC collection

Hi
I went through one cycle with absolutely no problem but had very bad stomach pain after my 2nd Ec. So much so that I fainted when I got out of the car when I reached home. So don't worry. All the best on the 2WW.

I was not too bad at first but it got worst - I got myself in a right state worrying about everything I ended up having a panic attack which in itself causes stomach pains.

You have to remember even if you have had to have a sedation you have still had a minor operation - your body takes time to heal.

All the best - you will be finexxx

I hope you feel better soon.
I was walking like John Wayne after the EC and my clinic happily told me that if I were to get pregnant then the pains would get worse anyway due to the stumulation of the ovaries!

Good luck on your 2WW and I hope that you will feel more pain soon (if we listen to my clinic!) :D

Hi May, how are you feeling today? I hope the pains are getting less now. Did you speak to your clinic?

It can be a bit unnerving to feel pain somewhere other than where your ovaries are, but it's quite common to feel pains and bruising anywhere in the abdomen. I had bad pains for about 4 or 5 days, but the odd twinge for weeks. Your ovaries have some major settling down to do!

Who had pain during EC

I'd like some honest answers from everyone who has had an EC in the past... Who had pain during the actual EC even though you had received drugs?

I'm expecting some pain after the event, but I've heard a few too many stories on here of people who had pain during the actual procedure itself even though they were sedated and I'm just wondering if it's just me being sensitive... Just so I know if I should worry or not! :rolleyes:

Thanks everyone! :))

Hi Sophie

People seem to have different experiences, but for me it was fine. I had sedation (intravenous in the back of my hand) and pain relief (a suppository just before I went into theatre). I was absolutely terrified about being awake throughout the procedure, and I didn't find the anaesthatist very reassuring when I asked him if it was painful. But in the end it was fine. I was awake, and could feel them prodding about in there. But it was like having a scan or an internal exam or something - it didn't hurt. And I felt completely relaxed because of the sedative (actually the worst bit was the injection in the back of the hand).

I hope yours goes OK. Try not to get too nervous - I'm sure they will look after you. Loads of luck :goodluck:

i suppose every one's different so you can't read too much into it. if you get worked up before e/c you will probably feel it more as your muscles may be more tense.

i had 5 cysts aspirated this week and i did feel it when the ovaries were 'tampered' with but did not care what was going on, and the nurse was there.

i suggest practising some deep breathing techniques to relax you for the day.

Hi Sophie - everyone has these concerns
I was not sedated for my EC - I just had local anaesthetic which involved a pain relieving drip in the hand and 4 internal injections to dull the pain. There was some discomfort but the thought of it was far worse than the actual thing, and I'm not concerned about having my EC again. I think we can see any pain as 'positive pain' because what we are doing is getting our eggs ready to be fertilised to create our dream. Ultimately that is what gets us through.
I did have period like pain when the drugs wore off, which in my case was about 5 mins after the procedure, but those pains only lasted about 15 mins as they gave me a pain killing tablet for them. As I say it was just like period pain so nothing to be fearful of. After the EC I went to the supermarket and did some shopping, so I really was fine. Have a look on the October Optimist thread to see what we all said about it immediately after our ECs.
Lots of luck for your exciting EC

Hi Sophie

Good luck for your EC & your treatment.

When I had my EC I didn't remember a thing as I went to sleep & when I woke up it was over. I was spaced out afterwards & had some AF type pains after it. Try not to worry too much it is a quick procedure.

best of luck

Thanks everyone for the reassurances! I had a bit of a :scared: moment yesterday, wondering if I could go through with it all, but I think some of it must have been the drugs talking... :whoops:

It seems that the thought of EC is actually worse than actually having it done by the sounds of things... I'll be having one of the 'in the back of the hand' sedations and even that scares me to bits as I've never had a drip or anything before. I better get used to it though as I'm expecting to have to go through it again in the future! (for a sibling ofcourse, today is a PMA day smile2 )

Thanks again everyone!

Hi Sophie

I was in the same boat as you - never been in hospital for anything before and the thought of the needle in the back of the hand was my worst fear out of the whole experience - BUT had a fantastic aneasthetist who was great and it was all in my mind newshy it was as they say "just a scratch" and she told me that I wouldn't feel a thing in theatre as they give me a sedative that I would get arrested for outside the hospital !! - she was right I didn't really feel anything - she up'd the dose when I felt some discomfort but nothing painful - I was to say the least in a world of my own and was completely unaware of what was going on and how long I was in there for :loony:

After just went home and slept it off on the couch with a duvet [zx184] and afternoon TV with only minor discomfort when it wore off but nothing that paracetamol didn't cure!!

Everything will be fine - good luck :goodluck:

Sophie

I think it all boils down to what medication that the anaesthetist gives for the procedure.

The drug that i had was called Midazolam which give you amnesia re/ the event..

Can you find out what meds they will be using during your EC??

I don't remember a thing, but on my EC, i supposedly gave the thumbs up every time they got an egg!!!
My advice - try not to worry and trust in the doctors..



Metformin for 2 1/2 years
Clomid - 100mg for 6 cycles
Laparoscopy - 06 - normal
Feb 07 - unsuccessful IUI
May 07 - abandonded IUI - overstimulated
July 07 - IVF :BFP
15th April - my little miracle arrived

I'm not sure what drugs I'll be having... I seem to recall from the open evening that they give you something to turn off your short term memory as well as sedation. ?( Good question to ask on Tuesday when I go in for my blood test!

I guess what worries me is that I always thought my DH would be there to hold my hand and make them do something (or stop) if I looked in a panic but not able to communicate it (iykwim) but it turns out he has to do his 'thing' at the same time!! He will only be there when they give me the sedation and then he's off! :8o:

I know I should stop worrying as there is nothing I can do... Your answers are all really helpful!

It can hurt some people. I know of ladies on here who have felt it, me included!! Most of it was fine. Apparently, I talked non-stop, but I can't remember. According to DH, when they got the first egg, I turned to him and said ''just think, that could become our baby'' newshy I felt the last 4 or 5 follies, and yes it hurt, but focusing on the possible result helped.

Good luck!

Still sore- could it be the endo?

3 days after egg collection and a few hours after ET- I'm still sore- I find it hard to go to the loo as any muscle usage down there hurts! Just wondering if I can blame the endometriosis for this? I was told tha the IVF process would be more painful- but not sure about it at this stage? Anybody else suffer from endo and experienced this/know about this? xxx

Hi Emma

On my first cycle I had a lot of pain after e/c that went on past e/t for a 3 or 4 days. It will pass and you have to rememebr you have been poked and prodded a lot.

The only cure for me was resting, and really taking tti easy and literally doing nothing so if you can - feet up, TV on and of course some of these :chocs:!

Sorry to hear that you are feeling sore. Im also sorry that I can't offer any advice as my TX has not started yet. But I didn't want to read and run.

Take care, relax and take things easy. :xxx3:

It definately does take a while for all the pain to go hun. Think of how many times they had to poke your insides with a needle! Plus your ovaries are likely to be tender from all the extra follies than usual. Take it easy, and try not to overdo things.

:hello: Emma - ive got bad endo too and had pain post egg coll and transfer it lasted for about 4/5 days, try not to worry hun I asked my GP about this and he said that people with endo damage (adhesions etc) get increased pain because of the inflammation. As the girls have said just try and take it easy hun endo is a pain in the bum! x x

RE: Still sore- could it be the endo?

Hi Em, we are cycle buddies and I had my ET today, 3 days since EC and I am still in pain. It has gotten better over the days and will hopefully pass soon.

Sorry you are in pain hun but don't forget you've just had an operation and a fairly serious one too. hang in there.
