F/u @ fertility GYN: It may be related to your IVF treatment and you might be feeling your oocytes growing. It is probably nothing to worry about, however, any severe pain should be evaluated. Is this your first IVF cycle? In any case, you will be getting ultrasound monitoring for your egg growth. Rarely, especially in younger women, you can get ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome which is a concern.
