Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I think you are having a urinary tract infection.
There could be associated vaginal infection too.
Please consult your doctor immediately for an internal check up and urine routine microscopy testing.
You might need antibiotics to cure the infection.
ALso, drink atleast 3 - 4 litres of water daily, as that will help in controlling the infection.
All the best.
Please feel free to discuss further.

Gestone 400 cannot lead to an infection.
Trim your nails and try and make the tablet a bit wet before inserting.
NO it will not affect the embryo transfer or your chances of pregnancy.
