pain post ivf
Hi Doc

I had ivf about 2 weeks ago and have been getting some mild lower abdominal pains on and off. Is this normal/ expected and the reason for the Cyclogest?

Mild abdominal pains are probably normal. I take it that you do not yet know whether the IVF was successful or not. Cyclogest is used to boost progesterone levels in early pregnancy. Low progetserone can sometimes result in miscarriage.
