Thanks for your query.

I read your concerns. Following are my comments and suggestions:

1) Several IVF / ICSI patients suffer this problem after the treatment cycle which is generally due to hormonal variation that would have occurred during and after your treatment.

2) Generally progesterone supplements cause this and it gets corrected within a month after treatment. I am sure it will get corrected soon.

3) Meanwhile I advise you to drink more water and have high fibre diet ( Vegetables and fruits). This will improve urinary as well as stool problems.

4) Pain on left & right side is generally due to enlarged (stimulated ) ovaries which gradually decreases and you will soon feel better be next month when ovaries regain their size.

5) I advice good diet with plenty of water / liquids. If symptoms persist you can take medication after getting examined by a doctor. But it may not be necessary as you will be normal in few days.

I hope I answered your query. Let me know if you have any more queries.
