What Are Some Physical Side Effects of IVF? Dr. Jenny Cook
The main physical side effects of IVF that you would notice, is that some women will experience a degree of bloating during the IVF process.
We do aim to minimise the impact on the rest of your life, but nonetheless, there is something else that you’re trying to fit into your day. So, some women can become tired, maybe emotionally tired or exhausted. Following the egg collection, you may have a small amount of bleeding, and this is in terms of physical effects, or you may notice some sharp, shooting pains for a couple of days afterwards.
