Hi, I had an IVF transfer yesterday (2-day transfer of one egg) and ate a dish that had peas and caraway seeds today. I read that caraway seeds can cause a miscarriage. Should I be worried? I'm feeling some cramps in my stomach right now. Thanks.

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Well, caraway seeds and oil if taken in medicinal amount can cause miscarriage. One time consumption of a dish having some caraway seeds should not cause any problem. Hope this helps. Take care!
