Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

I understand this could be concerning. I can however reassure you that after an embryo transfer, chances of the pregnancy becoming ectopic are almost zero.

I think this should simple a reaction of the system and a simple pain killer and just watching for a couple of days, with some bed rest should be sufficient.

In case pain persists, you might have to consult your doctor for an ultrasound.

For now, I would say too early to worry.

Thanks and kind regards as I wish you the best of health.
