Just a quick question, I am doing my 2nd ivf and I am due EC on Wednesday.  I have been having a lot of tummy gripes during the stimming and have been putting a hot water bottle on my tummy now and then, now I am worried that I could of damaged my eggs, any thoughts?????  I'd really be grateful for any advice as I am panicking!!

Hiya Frances

I am having ec on tuesday - there is a nov/dec thread on cycle budies called santas babes if you fancy 'chatting' with loads of us going through this at the moment.
Anyway.....I am not a nurse so this is just what i have read in Zita Wests fertility book.

"Keep your lower abdomen warm, using a hot-water bottle for example.  In chinese medicine, warmth is considered neccessary for the development of the baby"

I cant find the bit about after transfer but i think it is not advised from then... hopefully someone can confirm that?!

Try not to worry - you have done nothing to 'damage' your eggs.  Good luck on weds.  ^goodluck^
