Ghost - what is the purpose of antibiotics during the fresh cycle? My husband and are both taking them begrugingly because our tomachs get upset - even with food - and why do we need them for both of us for ivf?
Thank you. We have to them or 2 weeks until transfer for me.

Not sure why your husband is getting them, but antibiotics are routinely given to the female to reduce the risk of infection following egg retrieval.
