I did the shots until about 9 weeks, sex was ok for us after the first U/S when they saw that the babies where in the right spot. Ask your dr. about that though.

you need to ask your RE, but as the other ladies have said, usually progesterone shots are taken for most of the 1st trimester, I was on progesterone until week # 12. My nurse said we could have sex after BFP, but we were too nervous for that. Even now, my husband is treating me almost like a little sister...not fun...but he's worried about "hurting" the baby....funny :lol: and sucks for me :shock:

Hi,

I think you may ask your doctor about sex to be save. I know IVF is long process. I just wanted to be more careful

Thanks,
