Brief Answer:
Can be a normal finding.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I have gone through your query and understand your health concerns.

The mild rise in body temperature can be a reactionary fever in response to the embryo transfer. This usually reduces in next 4-5 days. High levels of progesterone and the other hormonal changes also cause such a mild rise in body temperature. You can give her Acetaminophen/Paracetamol in case she feels uncomfortable. Let her rest.

Do consult your gynaecologist in case there is a high-grade fever or chills or the fever is persistent.

I hope this answers your query.

Dear Doctor,

Thanks for reply.
Just wanted to ask that will this temperature from last two days which XXXXXXX to 102 degree last night will affect the emryo plantation or pregnancy.

Brief Answer:
This will not affect pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
A temperature higher than 102 degrees and that is persistent is worrisome. You can give her paracetamol that is safe for her.
This rise in temperature will not affect embryo implantation and pregnancy.
Hope this will help.
