Maybe...: Some cramping feelings and pressure/bloating may be normal after et. I'd discuss with your ivf doc in person, you can't get any real advice about et online.

Preimplantation test: In ivf (in vitro fertilization) a new technique can now check the dna of each embryo for anomalies and only transfer cytogenetically healthy embryos, thus decreasing your chances for miscarriage and chromosomally abnormal offspring. It does little to improve your transfer success rate.

What is the definition or description of: embryo transfer?

Embryo transfer: Embryo transfer (also et, set. Fet, etc) refers to placing one or more human embryo(s) (multi-cell or blastocyst) into the uterus of a woman trying to become pregnant. Et is the final step in an ivf cycle, and is done in some other circumstances as well. It is extremely safe, mostly comfortable, and usually not technically difficult. Experts agree on its importance, but often differ on specifics.

Probably: Can't promise it is normal, but it is very common. If you are worried talk with your ivf doc.
A 35-year-old member asked:

Twinges after embryo transfer, should I be concerned?

Probably not: Generally you would like an embryo transfer to go without any bleeding, cramping or discomfort; however, a few twinges should not generally effect the success of the transfer and subsequent implantation rates. I would suggest that you be on intramuscular Progesterone injections to quiet your uterus and to give you the maximum chance for implantation and a successful pregnancy. Good luck.
