Sorry to hear you're having to go through IVF and that you're experiencing tummy pains Unfortunately all the drugs through treatment, followed by being poked and prodded through EC.....and then the ET and the progesterone during 2ww....all of this can cause all sorts of side effects and symptoms, exactly as you're experiencing. The progesterone (pessaries) can cause lots of horrible side effects/symptoms...
Progesterone supplements (and natural progesterone following ovulation) can cause the following side effects/symptoms (amongst other things):
breast tenderness or pain
upset stomach and/or vomiting
diarrhea and/or constipation
muscle, joint, or bone pain
mood swings/irritability/excessive worrying
vaginal discharge/increase in cervical mucus
PMS like symptoms
The EC will obviously make you feel bloated, uncomfortable and your ovaries feel tender but also the ET may cause cramping as the catheter that's inserted into the womb can cause this.
