Hi,

IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is considered to be an effective treatment in case of infertility. While In Vitro Fertilization is usually a safe method, there are some side effects of IVF which people may experience during treatment. Side effects of IVF are feverish, hot flashes, blurred vision, nausea, bloating, mild pelvic and abdominal pain, fatigue, mood swings, breast tenderness, depression, changes in body weight, weakness, tiredness, anxiety, stress, allergic reactions etc.

Inform your doctor immediately if you notice some serious side effects such as flu like symptoms like fever, chills, joint pain, muscle ache, tiredness, symptoms of allergic reactions like rashes, itching, swelling of lips, tongue, throat, eyes, face, hands or feet, dizziness, rapid heartbeat, wheezing, breathing abnormalities, hypotension etc.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
