Dear R

In the past it was recommended that at least 3 hours of strict bed rest immediately post embryo transfer be observed. However current thinking and literature suggest that even a short 10-15 minute period of non-ambulation is sufficient without any significant alteration in pregnancy rates flowing embryo transfer.
