Brief Answer:
Masturbation to be avoided

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns about masturbation after embryo transfer.

Masturbation elicits uterine contractions and are known to cause expulsion of embryos. Hence I suggest not to masturbate till you see pregnancy sac in the uterus.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Hi,

Gases won't affect pregnancy. Don't worry about it.

If you have already masturbated don't worry about it. Nothing to do as of now.
