What urinary symptoms do you have?

When is your egg transfer? Thank you.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
My Appointment is on Tuesday at 11:00 am.
I took a home UTI test because I do get them and it came up positive for Leukocytes
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Now, I thought the pain that I had when I went to the bathroom was just from the egg retrieval which was last Thursday. I am having urgent urination, chills, the odd empty feeling.

It's possible that they might cancel your egg transfer for the UTI. However, I would recommend calling your doctor now to get treated for the UTI. If you get treatment today, your symptoms may be gone by Tuesday, or at least significantly better.

A UTI isn't always a cause for canceling egg transfer, depending on the severity of symptoms. Your doctor will decide when seeing your on Tuesday.
