A 20-30 minute rest period in the reproduction clinic is sufficient. The patient can return to a normal life, does not need any more rest and does not need to suspend her usual daily activities. It is important to bear in mind that in natural pregnancies the woman does not rest, since she does not know that fertilization has occurred and that the embryos are trying to implant in the endometrium.
Can rest influence whether the transfer is positive or negative?
