It depends on how it goes. Most of the time it's ok to go back to work as normal the day after ec. However cleaning is a physical job so I would ask the doctors on Wednesday before you go home after ec.
Good luck!

Yes it can be rather physical and I'll defo ask... If I do go to work (on doctors nod that is) then I'll only be doing the basics like a bit of mopping and sweeping, I'll avoid the heavy stuff like lifting and using any machines.

Hi Heidi,

After my EC I took 3 days off.. I didn't have ohss I don't think but I was very bloated, uncomfotable and actually was walking like a hunchback the day after.. I got a doctors note saying I had abdominal pain... After ET I have been working but taking it easy, I think it is important to keep moving but like you say no lifting etc..

Lots of luck

Hey Heidi

I have had a few egg collections and each one was very different, my last cycle I wouldn't have even know it had been done, pain free and not even a cramp. But I do remember being in quite a lot of pain for a couple of them even coughing sometimes hurt. I have always took the following day at least off and think I have been lucky to have the weekends to recover as well. I work in a nursery with under 3's and it can be quite demanding as required to lift and bend lots. I personally would stay off but it all depends on people's circumstances and how understanding your bosses are. If you know you can take it really easy then it's up to you Hunni, good luck and take care x x x
