Pregnant after IF

Sex after IVF

Did anyone conceive using IVF?  If so, did your RE tell you to wait to have sex until your 6 week u/s?

    We did IVF and were on pelvic rest until we saw the heartbeat at seven weeks.  We were extra nervous and voluntarily waited until 10 weeks (after second u/s).

    Same here.  We were on pelvic rest until heartbeat.  Even though we saw that, I still denied poor DH last night because I'm a nervous nelly and want to wait until after I'm released to my OB and out of the first tri!

    We did IVF and I was told to be on pelvic rest (no sex, no orgasms) until after our viability ultrasound which was done in my 7th week. They say it disrupts the stability of your uterus.

    TTC #1 since 7/08 After 3 years, 2 losses, 3 rounds of IUI, and one round of IVF, we finally have our dream come true! DS born 7/30/11

    TTC #2 off and on since 7/12

    I was told by RE "no sex" until 1st u/s.  I was nervous after that and still wanted to wait...then I had my SCH bleed.  I was then told "no sex" until 12 weeks.

    Same here, no sex until after the first ultrasound. Then I had SCH and that put us out of commission until week 12.

    I keep forgetting to ask.  But I just got my second beta back (yay!) and I am way too nervous to have sex.  The thought of it disturbing my uterus definitely does not put me in the mood.
